The Holy Roman Empire: A Model for the Future United States

The United States faces a myriad of problems today. Chief among them is disunity amongst the people. We are a nation of many individual communities, with different views on government and different cultures. One government with a single set of rules, or even fifty governments with fifty sets of rules aren’t enough.

It is my belief that the United States was designed for governing the country as it was in 1790 and this paradigm has been pushed and stretched as far as possible into fitting the 21st century.  We are no longer a union of rural, largely agrarian states, physically isolated from any potential geopolitical rivals. As the United States has changed, we’ve changed the government, first through the amendment process, and now with the judiciary simply ratifying major changes to government.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted links. I’ve been on vacation, which was lovely. It also seems like I’m getting pickier about what I put on here. Transient posts about the current news cycle tend to dominate as election season heats up and I don’t bother to post many of these. Also, it seems like amateur bloggers lower their output at this time of year. Nevertheless, I’ve found a few gems recently that you should check out.

Trump and the New Religion looks at the reaction to Trump among the conservatives who still think being graced as “respectable” by progressives is the most important thing.
The Tragedy of the Google discusses the effects Google and other internet firms are having on centralizing ownership and how they use government regulations to manipulate costs.
Social Media is a Tool of the State examines the effects social media has had on human behavior and how it has accomplished goals globalist governments find desirable.
One Man, One Vote, One Time lays out the motivation progressives have to push mass immigration. Rather than convince Americans to follow their program, they create new Americans to vote for them. Once a majority casts a vote in favor of a progressive program, it is locked in, and at least so far on American history, impossible to repeal.
Were the Arab Conquests a Myth? introduces the author’s book which presents a case that the traditional arc of the 7th century AD is false. Working from the assumption that Heraclius didn’t reconquer Syria and Egypt from the Persians, and that Muhammed and the pre-Umayyad caliphs didn’t exist, the author postulates a Persian Empire which converts to Ebonite Christianity and morphs into the Umayyad Caliphate over a century. This helps to explain some details in the historical record as well as synergy between Islam and the middle Eastern relgions that preceded it.
