FK – Sugar candy mountain is still a lie. Replacing it with another lie for a time didn’t change that.
Our ancestors fought a bloody eight-year war to end monarchy here, among other things. A percentage of them insisted on a Bill of Rights, which is what makes us ‘exceptional.’
The Bill of Rights includes a man-created concept of forbidding ‘cruel and unusual punishment,’ something mainstream, or most versions, sub-versions and subversions of ‘christianity’ don’t get. That beats the old concept of torturing disobedient slaves and sacrificing animals and people to please the god of the hour.
We must stop choosing from among ALL the versions of authoritarianism, whether based in 3000-year-old tribal propaganda or in 19th century so-called philosophy.
The human race is still a very primitive species. We still exist in a very dark age.
