So the resident would rather scuttle the ship than cooperate with others. Why is it so hard to get some people to work with others to fix the faults in our constitutional democratic republic. We seem instead to have an obstructionist anti-constitutional, anti-democratic- anti-republic faction that has infested the Republican party and seeks to replace our government of the people, by the people, and for the people with an authoritarian dictatorship where only people of the right race, religion and political ideology can thrive. Even the small businessman is endangered when courts are packed to favor the giant corporations.
When a nation no longer has common goals, but two separate sets of goals, there can be no trust and no progress. The disrupters would have the population distrust math, science, logic, critical thinking, and would do all they can to have public education weakened and move out of the common and into homes to lower the quality and create even more division and mistrust. The disrupters gleefully support the resident, anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers, etc and encourage the disrespect for a government of the people, by the people, and for the people with slogans like “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” is seen as a signal that self-rule cannot work and we must not attempt to let people have any choices but instead submit to a strong authoritarian leader who will eliminate the “imperfect” who think differently.
We do not need two separate goals — one for inclusion and one for exclusion — if we are to continue as a nation and it is time to stop electing representatives who want no part of our constitutional democratic republic with freedom and equal justice for all but wish to replace it with a ruthless authoritarian dictatorship.
