When I grew up, everyone admired job-creating business leaders. We idolized them. They inspired us. They were our heroes: Steve Jobs, hero. Lee Iacocca, hero. Sam Walton, hero. Andy Grove, hero.
Today, the exact opposite is happening. In the first Lego movie, the evil villain was called “President Business.” In nearly all kid’s movies (save for Marvel and DC Comics), the bad guy is the businessman. Inspiration is just sucked out of our kids.
Moreover, government makes it DANGEROUS to start a business today. The regulations and punishment make job creators disappear. The Trump Administration has relaxed those dangerous, crippling regulations.
Socialistic-leaning government, while whipping up public fanfare through its media allies, races toward destruction of business, as happened to the coal industry prior to Trump.
We now struggle with a “Democracy Dilemma.” Democracy is taking over America in a sort of mob role. Now that over 50% of voting-age Americans receive some form of government assistance, the majority support irrationally taking from business owners.
And today’s children get spoon-fed anti-business socialism in the liberal academic environment. America faces a growing and dangerous momentum against business.
How can we stop the democracy dilemma and its mob rule? There is no way to stop it now, not after such a high percentage of the population is taking from the public treasury.
The only way to save us from this dangerous, death cycle is something called The Prime Law:
The Prime Law
(The Fundamental Law of Protection)
*The purpose of human life is to prosper and live happily.
*The function of government is to provide the conditions that let individuals fulfill that purpose.
*The Prime Law guarantees those conditions by forbidding the use of initiatory force, fraud, or coercion by any person or group against any individual, property, or contract.
No person, group of persons, or government shall initiate force, threat of force, or fraud against any individual’s self, property, or contract.
Force is morally-and-legally justified only for protection from those who violate Article 1.
No exceptions shall exist for Articles 1 and 2.
There are two HUGE obstacles preventing this only solution to the democracy-dilemma, creeping socialism:
1) Do enough Americans want to put out the mental effort and honesty to understand the Prime Law and how it is the ONLY solution — a gift — that can save us from decline.
2) If and when enough Americans do embrace the Prime Law, will we have enough of a republic left to save us through a constitutional amendment — The Prime Law Amendment?
If we cannot overcome those two obstacles, then the only bright future would be a new country based on the Prime Law.
The following manifesto begins with a brief glance at what a new country based on the Prime Law would look like followed by the full treatment of how to bring the Prime Law to the foundation of America, which would bring our future a prosperity never seen before.
