"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was and never will be." - Thomas Jefferson

It is obvious from the title which of the above choices this Writer believes.

So, the question is, is this Writer right or wrong? Let us turn to a bit of logic, a type of rational reasoning that officials today seem devoid of - or intentionally with malice and forethought, willfully disregard.

Our forefathers were actually refugees from one of the most oppressive Governments that existed at the time, a Government that, at the decree of one King or Queen, could declare death to the offender. Or, imprison people for life for a mere disagreement. The powers that be could deprive him of the use of his property, or place such a horrendous tax on land use that the poor fiefs could not pay, with eviction following.

The monarch owned all property, and, for example, the people were just the "tenants" upon the land.

Hmm, just as a thought, read your abstract or deed. The wording might surprise you.

One might even find out where Certificates of Birth ultimately end up, and why people are called "human resources."

But, those are other stories.

The point is this. Do you honestly believe that people escaping the tyranny of "crazier than a loon inbred monarchies" would actually set up virtually the same feudal system in their new land?

Or would they rather do all that is humanly possible to assure that such tyranny never developed?
