Ihave long held that the pur­pose of gov­ern­ment is to serve the needs of the peo­ple, not rule us. This no­tion that gov­ern­ment should serve us rather than us serve it is em­bod­ied in the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion and the UN’S Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights.

Only a few coun­tries on this planet can be con­sid­ered true democ­ra­cies, and the U.S. is not one of them. Canada is more demo­cratic than the U.S., but is a Con­sti­tu­tional Monar­chy, has a deeply flawed po­lit­i­cal sys­tem and is owned and ul­ti­mately ruled by Queen El­iz­a­beth II. It is not re­ally a democ­racy but is a good delu­sion that most Cana­di­ans are happy with.

Many ob­serve that the U.S. fed­eral gov­ern­ment no longer serves the needs of the peo­ple, fre­quently vi­o­lates the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion, the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights and nu­mer­ous na­tional and in­ter­na­tional laws.

Some of those who study the im­pact of U.S. for­eign pol­icy would say that the U.S. is a rogue state that poses a se­ri­ous threat to the rest of the world. Most of the world agrees with them.

There are those who claim that we should just shutup and vote, but that doesn’t re­ally work when the can­di­dates serve only those who seek to rule us.

Many be­lieve that the demo­cratic process in the United States at the fed­eral level, and in­creas­ingly at the state level and in many large cities, is very bro­ken and merely vot­ing won’t fix it.

An in­creas­ing num­ber of Amer­i­cans are openly call­ing for rev­o­lu­tion. A great num­ber more are con­sid­er­ing the idea in se­cret. But, is rev­o­lu­tion re­ally the an­swer and if so how would it work in an age of mass sur­veil­lance against an in­creas­ingly pow­er­ful and ruth­less foe?

Can Amer­i­cans re­gain con­trol of their coun­try and fix their gov­ern­ment be­fore it is too late?

I think about these things and hope that you will join us in our ex­plo­ration of top­ics avoided by the main­stream me­dia.
