Here are some more notes to expand on:
“Nation of Immigrants” vs “Nation of Pilgrims (Immigrant Patriots)”
Fallacy: America is special because it has immigrants from different cultures, that’s it. America’s DNA is not merely “immigrants”, which collapse every multi-cultural empire. The DNA is people from any culture saying, “Give me liberty or give me death death”, being willing to die to fight people who want to “help” us. In the general sense, Colonial Americans organized themselves under rank and law to institutionalize this concept: “If you want to help me then don’t help me. You do not ‘help’ me, you keep out of my way. The other option is that I fight and die to keep you out of my children’s way.” That attitude is what made America exist.
“Tyranny of the Masses” vs “Republic if you can keep it”
Fallacy: Electoral college is unfair, majority rule is always fair to minorities. · · · →
