Leaning into the spirit of your post, Rebel Farmer, while recognizing the bias of the site containing the article you recommend (as PonyBoy points out), I am going to revisit your invite to read their reasoning for revoking the US Constitution AFTER I listen to this Glenn Greenwald interview of Krystal Ball & Nathan Robinson:
My concern is that the situation we are in is complicated and dangerous because:
- the far-right billionaires who funded the Tea Party Movement aim to revoke US the Constitution themselves for their own purposes; and
- other transnational corporations, esp Big Pharma in collusion with NIH and the Pentagon, are actively revoking our rights and enforcing their definition of what “health” is on an overheated, poisoned planet with their vaccination race.
Granted, the US Constitution was designed to provide full power to the government with none to citizens. When the Bill of Rights was added to ameliorate this somewhat, “…the First Amendment was aimed to restrict the governmental power. It was specifically addressing what Congress can’t do. However, the constitution didn’t ensure that corporations would not be able to make laws restricting the freedom of speech. With the infiltration of commercial interests and the consolidation of media, the big business class has found a way to regulate free speech on their terms. The establishment of corporate media turned journalists’ First Amendment protection into a privilege that they can use against the public.” ~https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/07/19/in-crisis-of-democracy-we-all-must-become-julian-assange/#gsc.tab=0
Further, rather than deal with the Moldy-oldie document designed to restrict political, social and economic sovereignty to the white male slaveholding revolutionaries whose goal was to separate their lives and wealth from the British Empire, in a design to create their own empire, which has now outlived its usefulness --no, not that it ever had any to the masses, or to women, I agree with Ajamu Baraka of the Black Alliance for Peace, who writes:
"…we the people can construct an international commission of inquiry that examines the ongoing crimes against humanity occurring at every level of government in the U.S. with the full assistance of the corporate sector.
"But while correctly reframing and exposing the situation in the U.S. is important in the ideological fight, the PCHR [People(s)-Centered Human Rights] approach proceeds from the assumption that the genesis of the assaults on human dignity that are at the core of human rights violations are located in the relationships of oppression.
"The PCHRs’ recognizes that the oppressed can petition, expose, get resolutions passed or establish commissions of inquiry, but ultimately the realization of human rights can only be achieved when there is a fundamental alteration of the relations of power and the people rule.
“That is, when there is a social revolution.” As we are engaging in now… ~https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/06/26/the-responsibility-to-protect-bipartisan-crimes-against-humanity-in-the-u-s/#gsc.tab=0
