• "America will be the epitome of democracy, the finest style of government the globe has ever known. The world envies our style of government by the people." • "America could be the freest nation on Earth." • "In America we have something known as freedom which those in other countries don't have and wish they did." • "It's a no cost country." • "Everyone in the rest of the world dreams of coming to America."
These cherished fanatical beliefs of America and its propagandists have no genuine basis actually or fact, on the other hand they are chanted by many Americans, their media and education technique as a religion and set of Gospel truths that are universally agreed upon and unquestionable. Thus they are the antithesis to a zero cost-thinking and truth-seeking mind.
one) "America could be the epitome of freedom and democracy for the globe to emulate. It may be the most beneficial form of government by the individuals that the world envies."
We will get into freedom later, even so for currently, let's address the democracy problem. Technically, a democracy is defined as a "rule by the majority". Hollywood, the media and our education program all chant that America will be the epitome of democracy as though it had been a Gospel Truth that is universally agreed upon (still it is not by far). It is so ingrained in our culture that many in no way dare to question it.
The founding fathers never intended America to be a democracy and essentially did not even believe in 1. Most Americans would be shocked to find out this. Anyone who casually researches the American kind of government and its founding at the late 18th Century will see that technically, America was not set up as a democracy having said that as a Constitutional Republic.
In truth, there is no mention of the word "democracy" in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. Even the Pledge of Allegiance cited by school youngsters mentions that America is usually a Republic:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and towards the Republic for which it stands, 1 nation below God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
The founding fathers were intellectual elites who knew their history. They knew that a democracy was unsustainable, for it was in essence a rule by a lawless mob. The fundamental flaw in a democracy is that the majority is unrestrained.
