• "America could be the epitome of democracy, the best kind of government the world has ever identified. The globe envies our kind of government by the people." • "America will be the freest nation on Earth." • "In America we have something called freedom which those in other countries don't have and wish they did." • "It's a no cost country." • "Everyone at the rest of the world dreams of coming to America."
These cherished fanatical beliefs of America and its propagandists have no actual basis truly or truth, in spite of this they are chanted by numerous 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 no cost-thinking and truth-looking mind.
1) "America could be the epitome of freedom and democracy for the globe to emulate. It will be the preferred form of government by the people that the world envies."
We will uncover into freedom later, however for now, let's address the democracy concern. Technically, a democracy is defined as a "rule by the majority". Hollywood, the media and our education method all chant that America may be the epitome of democracy as even though it had been a Gospel Truth that's universally agreed upon (on the other hand it isn't by far). It is so ingrained in our culture that a lot of never dare to question it.
The founding fathers never ever intended America to be a democracy and truly did not even feel in 1. Most Americans could be shocked to discover this. Anyone who casually researches the American type of government and its founding in the late 18th Century will see that technically, America was not set up as a democracy in spite of this as a Constitutional Republic.
In truth, there is certainly 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 often a Republic:
"I pledge allegiance towards the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
The founding fathers had been 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 basic flaw in a democracy is that the majority is unrestrained.
