What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Invariably, the workers in every "workers' paradise" have had to be disarmed, in order to better preserve law, order, and peace. (Besides, in paradise, you don't need weapons. Right?)

There's a lesson for us in that, but nobody seems to be paying attention to it.

We should also remember that, in every Socialist and Communist revolution so far, the first people to have been 'dobe-walled were always the middle class and the revolution-minded children of the rich.

Somebody has to do the work.

Elitists always forget that part...ya know...how the "paradise" formed in the first place.
