Where do we stand now? For decades our leaders have mismanaged the international system. Our jobs have been exported overseas and everything we buy is imported. North American Industrial capacity has been in decline since before my generation, and with it the decline of democracy. Democracy is an experiment whose survival is not guaranteed. Every year we become less free and less prosperous.
We the people are under economic attack by foreign tyrants. Our leaders are at best complacent and at worst collaborators. A totalitarian china rises in the east and threatens to turn back the tide of human progress. Our culture is being diluted with mindless materialism. We are being watched everywhere at all times. Compassion has given way to contempt. Depression, war, we are in a pre-collapse state. At least we have the internet reformation. Although the free flow of information is not forever guaranteed.
Political change is necessary. We must establish a system of international trade based on human rights and civil liberties. We should not trade with states that violate their citizens human rights. Our governments should raise tariffs and allow our domestic industries a chance to function. We should stop outsourcing to our enemy and bring the jobs home. The American trade deficit is unsustainable and must be brought into balance. America is the defender of democracy and must be preserved lest tyranny and injustice engulf the world.
We must preserve our democracy at home and prevent foreign dictatorships from overpowering what we have fought so hard to establish, our individual sovereignty. From Athens to the Magna Carta, the English civil war to the American civil war, the Constitution to the Bill of Rights. Throughout the ages we have fought to establish and preserve a basic standard of human decency. The philosophers of the enlightenment period paved the way that we may live in a society where we are free to think and say and do as we like. Where we have a say in the decisions that affect our lives. This must be preserved.
If the communist party of china is to gain power over the world the human species will experience a de-evolution back to a more violent barbarism the likes of which we have not seen in generations. We are the guardians of the future. Now is the time to resist.
