• "America is the epitome of democracy, the most effective sort of government the world has ever identified. The world envies our type of government by the people." • "America may be the freest nation on Earth." • "In America we have something referred to as freedom which those in other countries do not have and wish they did." • "It's a absolutely free country." • "Everyone at the rest of the globe dreams of coming to America."
These cherished fanatical beliefs of America and its propagandists have no actual basis essentially or fact, on the other hand they are chanted by loads of Americans, their media and education method as a religion and set of Gospel truths which are universally agreed upon and unquestionable. Thus they are the antithesis to a totally free-thinking and reality-seeking mind.
1) "America will be the epitome of freedom and democracy for the globe to emulate. It may be the top type of government by the individuals that the world envies."
We will discover into freedom later, on the other hand for right now, let's address the democracy concern. Technically, a democracy is defined as a "rule by the majority". Hollywood, the media and our education technique all chant that America is the epitome of democracy as although it had been a Gospel Truth which is universally agreed upon (in spite of this it is just not by far). It is so ingrained in our culture that a lot of by no means dare to question it.
The founding fathers by no means intended America to be a democracy and in fact did not even feel in one. Most Americans would be shocked to find out this. Anyone who casually researches the American form of government and its founding in the late 18th Century will see that technically, America was not set up as a democracy on the other hand as a Constitutional Republic.
In truth, there is no mention of the word "democracy" in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. Even the Pledge of Allegiance cited by school kids mentions that America can be a Republic:
"I pledge allegiance towards the flag of the United States of America, and towards the Republic for which it stands, 1 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 fundamental flaw in a democracy is that the majority is unrestrained.
