What would happen if our
country was given a second chance at correcting
all the wrongs born of inappropriate
public/private collusions and corruption at the
What would happen if some of
the most amazing, but suppressed, alternative
energy technologies ever invented, were suddenly
made available to the public directly via the
marketplace - obliterating our unquenchable but
now erstwhile dependence upon oil, coal, and
radioactive nuclear power, seemingly forever?
Would we, as a nation, embrace
a return to true free market principles, genuine
political self-determination, and all the
responsibilities attendant upon such a freedom,
so long as the protection of our individual
rights was restored beyond a reasonable doubt?
Or would we, at a collective
level, even be receptive to such concepts in a
world where self-sufficiency and good-will have
been slowly replaced by an increasingly
pervasive culture of dependence upon our
government, and a creeping mistrust of our
What kind of leaders, promoting
what kind of policies, would be voted back into
power in the absence of a thorough enough
understanding of these principles by the time
those ballots were cast?
Would the interests that were
responsible for keeping our societies under
perpetual bondage to their environmentally
devastating forms of energy, and to their
socially and economically destructive monetary
systems, truly be gone for good - assuming they
were removed from the scene for merely a season?
Historically, these same
interests have been an inseparable proponent of
almost every major war and atrocity humanity has
had the misfortune to be subjected to, and
American history, in particular, is riddled with
silent battles that have been lost more times
than won in this regard.
In this light, does it really
make sense, as has been suggested, to not even
bother trying to educate our fellow Americans
about the virtues of their own heritage?
The implications are clear: the
prospect of a free and market-driven society,
unhindered by entrenched collusion at a
regulatory level, depends - to an incredible and
immense degree - upon securing for our
fellow countrymen and women a proper
understanding of the principles that made
America great to begin with. Cynics need not
There are such a vast number of
basic principles and concepts that have gone
missing from our collective understandings -
oddly enough - ever since the nation's
educational system became centralized. Where
would one even begin to address such issues in
order to guarantee the most effective "reboot"
of the entrepreneurial American spirit, as it
were, to coincide with this "hypothetical"
reboot of the American Republic??
What's needed is an impact
which inspires, informs, and accelerates the
replacement of a global lifestyle with one that
