Dear Soul Mate,
No, I don't know what the US Constitutional Republic is all about, that is
true...and that is why I am exploring it. There are many countries with
unwritten constitutions or even no constitutions at all, or even no state,
which have incorporated things like liberty and opportunity and implementation
of such concepts...always within limits of course...Nothing new there...
Is art defined by life or life defined by art, is an old aesthetic argument of
course. Like does life mirror are or art mirror life? I think that they are
both intertwined myself. So many US writers and painters and script writers of
course have captured my brain and influenced my mind and heart. Hollywood is
one of the things I love about America. Even when they started to produce
films where the "good " guys didn't win...:-)It is nice to see too, that
diversity in both terms of culture and in ethnicity is starting to catch up
with the composition of the population.
Oh! There are plenty of malicious actors about, even some of the good ones.
Rather than Schiller teach me about the US constitution, why don't you teach
all of us here on Cryptome Mailing List, after all, that is what it is for,
sharing information and ideas and platforms. As George Bernard Shaw once said,
"If you have an orange and I have an orange and we exchange oranges, we have
one orange each, but if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange
Ideas, we have at least two ideas each".... I am sure you must concur with such
Are you saying that slavery no longer exists in the United States? I am
certainly not saying that it doesn't exist either here in the UK or in the
United States. Have you ever heard of drug trafficking or sex trafficking, and
how big scale they have become in both our societies, and how little is being
done about it? Only now specialist task forces are being set up to combat it.
Come on Smokey, which planet are you living on?:-)

Not long ago, I said something about 'The American System' and you replied
about Hollywood and that aspect of American culture.
I infer from this that you believe America is defined by Hollywood, not the
Constitution and the spectrum of genuinely diverse cultures and heritages that
built the country.
No question that this U.S. (American) system was quickly set upon by malicious
actors. For example, the failure to outlaw slavery from the start; many Supreme
Court rulings that undermined plainly stated limits on government in the
Constitution and its Amendments (especially the first 10).
Schiller's essay comparing Athens and Sparta might be a good place to start
before getting into the structure and purpose of the U.S. Constitution.
Regarding the U.S. Constitution, I'm more in agreement with the Jeffersonian
view than any other view. But some of the Federalist's ideas are worthy of
Lincoln's power grab was a low point in U.S. history, and the effects of that
Marxist-inspired operation are still haunting the world. (Marx and Lincoln
admired each other. I recall an old book that had an engraving of the early
Illinois Republican Party meetings where a picture of Marx was displayed.
Here's one of the things Marx wrote to Lincoln
Before you shift the focus to slavery, be aware that the North continued
slavery in places where it served Lincoln's tyrannical purposes, but made it
illegal in the Confederate States. Slavery in the North was finally outlawed
with the 14th Amendment, but this was misused by malicious players when the
terms of that Amendment were applied to Corporations and virtually denied to

I see that Mr. Trump has pledged that the USA will last forever and be
top dog in the world forever. And one can see it in the way he is
talking to the Peoples Republic of Korea, and how his government is
acting, sort of disproves that, and shows off the weaknesses of the USA
rather than its strengths. If we had been back in the days of the
Vietnam uprising and rebellion, the troops would have been in right
away, bombing the shit out of everyone, right left and centre in the
name of putting down a rebellion against democracy. Nowadays, with many
countries having become nuclear powers and being armed with quite
sophisticated delivery systems for nuclear weapons, it isn't quite so
easy, radiation drifts across states. American cities are not quite so
safe as they once were, from a nuclear conflagration.
From what I can see, little North Korea is doing the rest of the world
a service, by pointing out that the USA has a huge arsenal of nuclear
weapons and has lots of military bases all over the Eastern Pacific, as
well as the rest of the world, most of them capable of delivering
nuclear weapons. Cuba and the stationing of nuclear delivery systems
there, so close to the United States, and the fear and trepidation it
caused in the hearts and minds of Kennedy and his associates and the
American people seems to have been forgotten by the US government.
We can all see that people are frightened of what nuclear weapons can
do, not only to themselves, but to the rest of the planet, so the
American citizens are not alone in that, but my question is, can't the
American people see the same fear engendered in others too, by their
government, or is there some perverse sort of psychology going on there,
where it is the US government's right to put the rest of the world in fear.
Like most wars, they generally happen by accident, rather than design,
the next world war will be unlike any other, and there is no guarantee
that the US or any other Nation State will win. In fact it is
guaranteed that the human civilisation on any part of the planet will
NOT win. One would rather put such a scenario off as long as possible,
it seems to me.
It really is about time that the nation states of the world got together
with a view to organising multilateral nuclear disarmament.
Just a thought,
