Resistance to tyranny starts with knowledge...
When the framers of the U.S. Constitution tried to ratify it, the 13 states refused to accept it. The founding fathers had written it to benefit themselves, the wealthy not the people…a compromise was needed.Why is this important?
When we look at history from the point of view how much time has passed, we generally assume that our factual understanding of events improves, but this is often not the case at all. Time and distance from past events can actually allow for editorializing and popular opinion to enter into the picture we see when we look back in time. Legends and myths can take on centralized roles when they are actually imaginary constructs and embellishments that have outgrown the confines of historical facts.The popular myth surrounding the founders has for decades claimed them to be wise men of strong Christian beliefs who had nothing but benevolent visions for a totally free United States; the actual men fell a bit short of their lauded positions. Many were actually wealthy men, the aristocrates of American society, and as such behaved pretty much like all people in this position have for centuries—they were looking out in it for themselves. Human nature has been pretty consistent since the beginning of time, and I describe it simply like this:This not an indictment by me, merely an observation of what has gone on since the first societal interactions among humans in our recorded history. Religion is so often pointed to as the main cause for wars of the past and present, when in reality I have discovered it to have been GREED. Religion was all too often merely a smokescreen to hide the real reason for the wars we fought. The pyramid is not really too surprising and it gives us insight into the actions of the founding fathers.Some made the attempt to seize power in a silent and subtle coup because they believed the populace was simply too ignorant and too war weary to notice the freedoms they were giving up through the founding document. What they discovered was that not everyone was so ignorant after all and not everyone agreed with a near totalitarian rule without a king. Rebellions, armed and violent, began… This push-back resulted in the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, being added as part of a compromise to get the “not so dumb” populace to ratify the document. The original document was cleverly written to place the balance of power in the hands of the elite, cleverly amended to redistribute the power more evenly to the hands of the people, BUT can be changed again if we do not act to halt these threats. The wealthy and powerful people seek again to treat us as ignorant and carve away at our rights and liberties.You can read those ten amendments along with the rest here on the AMENDMENTS page.
