    Default Understanding America.

    People from abroad look at America through a European lens, where province is second to nation. But here in America, our states are independent regions under contract to abide by the constitution in return for the benefits of the Federal system. Even though this contracts exists, it is somewhat one sided. There is nothing binding the state to follow federal law, only that they fully abide by the constitution. For example California having sanctuary states, the only federal remedy was to cut federal funding for certain things. Each state is sovereign, the U.S military has no authority in the land unless war is approved by congress or a foreign invasion ensues.

    Wars and rioting are part of the fabric of our freedom. States have a long history of conflicts with their neighbors, cities have always been tinder boxes for anger etc.

    There really is too many instances to post, but this is nothing new or unnatural imo. This is political and social Darwinism in action.

    Seems to me that the rights of individual states is more of a Jeffersonian myth, in modern America, and that modern America has a very strong Federalist state due to the philosophy of Alexander Hamilton.

    In otherwords : Americans are fond of quoting Thomas Jefferson but we live in Alexander Hamilton's country.

    Maybe in an economic sense, I do agree fully; but not from a legal sense. The federal government has little power in the affairs of states, the only thing they have power over is the currency which no state can produce unless they succeed from the union.

    You are the typical misinformed anti-intellectual American that has been propagandized by video media compared to truth bearing books :






    Two of the most influential figures in American history. Two opposing political philosophies. Two radically different visions for America.

    Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were without question two of the most important Founding Fathers. They were also the fiercest of rivals. Of these two political titans, it is Jefferson—–the revered author of the Declaration of Independence and our third president—–who is better remembered today. But in fact it is Hamilton’s political legacy that has triumphed—–a legacy that has subverted the Constitution and transformed the federal government into the very leviathan state that our forefathers fought against in the American Revolution.

    How did we go from the Jeffersonian ideal of limited government to the bloated imperialist system of Hamilton’s design? Acclaimed economic historian Thomas J. DiLorenzo provides the troubling answer in Hamilton’s Curse.

    DiLorenzo reveals how Hamilton, first as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and later as the nation’s first and most influential treasury secretary, masterfully promoted an agenda of nationalist glory and interventionist economics—–core beliefs that did not die with Hamilton in his fatal duel with Aaron Burr. Carried on through his political heirs, the Hamiltonian legacy:

    • Wrested control into the hands of the federal government by inventing the myth of the Constitution’s “implied powers”
    • Established the imperial presidency (Hamilton himself proposed a permanent president—–in other words, a king)
    • Devised a national banking system that imposes boom-and-bust cycles on the American economy
    • Saddled Americans with a massive national debt and oppressive taxation
    • Inflated the role of the federal courts in order to eviscerate individual liberties and state sovereignty
    • Pushed economic policies that lined the pockets of the wealthy and created a government system built on graft, spoils, and patronage
    • Transformed state governments from Jeffersonian bulwarks of liberty to beggars for federal crumbs

    By debunking the Hamiltonian myths perpetuated in recent admiring biographies, DiLorenzo exposes an uncomfortable truth: The American people are no longer the masters of their government but its servants. Only by restoring a system based on Jeffersonian ideals can Hamilton’s curse be lifted, at last.

    Alexander Hamilton was killed by an anti-Federalist in a duel, his legacy with the fed doesn't have much substance. Any state can secede and any state can disobey federal law.

    Maybe off-topic. So the president could or could not set nationwide rules for a pandemic? Is the blame laid at his feet internationally, justified? What could he have done nationally to "improve" the situation?

    That's Anti-intellectual stance since you cited no sources and if did cite sources they would be outdated ancient documents :





    As Ms. Jacoby sees it, there are several key reasons for “the resurgent American anti-intellectualism of the past 20 years.” To begin with, television, video games and the Internet have created a “culture of distraction” that has shortened attention spans and left people with “less time and desire” for “two human activities critical to a fruitful and demanding intellectual life: reading [ as in books mostly --JamesBond07] and conversation.”

    Anti-intellectualism is trying to shut people down through ad hominem attacks, intellectualism doesn't come in one flavor and your opinion has as much weight as mine does. Trying to portray your opinion as a fact by showing a book cover is a poor way to conversate. Basically what your doing is the old ANTIFA flood of insults and flooding people with information you never even read yourself. Just because it's written in a book or on TV doesn't make it a fact.

    An endorsement from Osama is worth more than one from the New York Times.
