To Vote or Not to Vote?

As elections bear down on us, and the local and national politicians spray the walls and roadsides with campaign posters, I can only roll my eyes at mankind’s endless naiveté. We live in a world gradually metamorphosing from one controlled by the tyranny of kings and dictators, to one run by the tyranny of popular opinion.

And popular delusions reign supreme in this world.

Sanford Levinson, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin, has authored his own tirade against it: “Our Undemocratic Constitution: Where the Constitution Goes Wrong (and How We the People Can Correct It). As he puts it, what many consider the greatest American document is in reality a blueprint for undemocratic governance.

He says we’re suffering from a “democratic deficit.”

Wrong. The world doesn’t suffer from a deficit of democracy. It suffers from a deficit of rationality. Nothing is more irrational than an unquestioning reverence for the Constitution (or of democracy itself, for that matter).

What is the Constitution? It is a broad taking away of every individual’s power to control his own life and property, and a grant of those powers to a group of politicians. Read it. Only the so-called “Bill of Rights,” the first ten amendments, offer any protection to the citizen from government, and even those amendments have been subsequently eviscerated by the Supreme Court.

As for the Constitution, no one can improve on Lysander Spooner’s great expose, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority. Written back in 1860, No Treason is one of the greatest pieces ever written on individual liberty. Before you genuflect before a document that essentially robs you of every vestige of control over your life and property, read Spooner’s words.

What is your opinion?

Do you even have one?

Is it a reasoned opinion or an emotional opinion?

 

The facts no one wants to read.

Comments and referrals to this blog would be greatly appreciated.
