“All the responsibility you abdicate will be taken up by tyrants.” – Jordan Peterson
It is popular these days to say that the founding document of our country is out of date. It is easy to take the position that today’s world is more complex than our Founding Fathers could have imagined, that perhaps it’s time to rebuild from scratch.
That’s not a very workable answer–but fortunately it’s not true. The surprising truth is that all the systems we need to run a country for the good of all were clearly spelled out well over 200 years ago. The problem is that those in power, with a few exceptions, have no idea what it says.
And who is in power? Not we the people, surely?
Of course we are.
We just need to learn our job as citizens.
