206. we really did stop being the good guys a while ago didn't we
or were we ever?

we can be, though! there's still something great about America, struggling to free itself from its feudal bondage.

getting rid of the filibuster would be a good start. getting rid of the standing army and covert action in peacetime (these colonial wars of agression are not wars in the sense that justifies such antidemocratic institutions)

ending the use of referenda to deprive people of human rights (tyranny of the majority is not democracy)

guarantee food shelter clothing and medicine, the basic social policy of modernity going back at least 2500 years.

get rid of the fallacy of economics and replace it with the truth of ecology.

then MAYBE we can survive.
