Redesigning Secular Government

I’m going to start a series of articles exploring the primary documents of secular government in the United States of America.

Starting with the Constitution of the United States of America – and then working my way through laws – pointing out problems that lead to our current society, why they are problems and what the solutions are to those problems.

At some point there will be new countries, new governments, new places – they may even be virtual in nature or they may simply be geographically not on this planet (Earth). We need to understand the major problems of our current governments and do our best to provide a helping hand for them to do better than we have done here on Earth.

In addition, I intend to go through practices that have been allowed under our present government, indicated why they are wrong, and perhaps codify what needs to be said at the highest level of government in order to prevent these things from happening again.

In addition, there will be other articles probing the nature of government. After all, if government exists to care for its people – then welfare is not a point for argument. If the nature of government is only to protect the people from external threats, but if they starve, die of exposure, or kill each other – then welfare should not happen, gun restrictions should not happen, and a whole slew of other impacts are the logical path.

Spoiler – the power of any government is determined by the power and safety of that government’s people. Therefore, the government exists to care for people – at least to the point of assuring that people have a safe place to live, plenty of food, and education to become something better for the future.

    I’m not certain if you meant that the necessity of warfare should not be argued or not. That being said, if you’re arguing against warfare, you are unqualified to discuss anything regarding government: some lunatic will always want to kill people.

    And there are currently multiple tyrannical, genocidal, dictators who would happily level the rest of the world. If that’s not enough, pick up any history book.

      Hehe. War may or may not be a necessity;however, a little key to understanding me and my articles is that I am a 10 year veteran of the US military. I am far from a hawk. There are so many things that have gone wrong in the history of the US that were permitted or allowed to happen based on our present governing documents. For example: The Tuskegee Experiment of Untreated Syphilis in the Nero Male.

    A hawk being the type who.. essentially seek to be world-police, without having the rest of the world’s support? Em, the work needs doing – if nothing else than locking those people into the mess they’ve created.

    I don’t know if I could actually build an argument against it, though. Not to save the innocents, as we’d essentially just be trading lives, but because a nest of lunatics is simultaneously a breeding ground for lunatics – they spread. With enough attrition, anything is doable, but people don’t like getting their hands dirty.

    That being said, I agree that our system is flawed. As a boy, I lived on an Alaskan island populated with druggies and alcoholics – not a great place to grow. Coulda used a bit more regulation there, as I don’t think there was even a cop.

    Hell, I’d like to see indentured servitude take the place of the majority of prison, and social aid programs. Help should paid for. Freedom should be earned.

    Damn. I have a typo in my response probably from spell check.
    In any case, no one country should be responsible as the world police. And we aren’t. Plenty of other countries participate in actions that we perform.
    However, there should be a certification process – real cause for involvement – before any actions are performed.

    Prison reform is definitely one of the topics I would want to explore. Commercialization of the prison system does appear to be effective – at maintaining a high prison population.
    The way our education system has grown verse how you would design an education system (something that would not have even occurred to the signers of the Constitution) would be a topic to flesh out.
    Much to go through and figure out what the options really are – as opposed to dealing in a box of what we presently have.
