What is your mechanism for enabling, that is making functional or operational, your concept of Rightful Liberty?
How, in this grossly bureaucratized, no longer the “a government-of-laws, not-of-men” society that we find ourselves in, do you accomplish this?
I am not being trite; I really want a thoughtful, practical response.
I have posited two things: one, that the Constitution of 1787 – for all its flaws – was a good model for our federal republic, if the body politic had adhered to the moral and cultural heritage required to exercise it; we have lost our way – but the constitutional system didn’t cause that, other factors did.
And two, that civil war is the likely result of our present discontents — if we do not somehow find a way to re-educate a significant portion of the body politic in the necessary attributes of what is required to live free, in a small-government, constitutional republic. I am not sanguine as to the probability of success in that attempt, but I do not see a peaceful alternative if we want our liberty back. Bickering over the form of the constitutional system is senseless; we had a perfectly usable constitution, we ought to return to using it.
