Democracy in Chains

Democracy in Chains, The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean published in 2017. Property rights before human rights. The Koch brothers’ plan to rewrite the Constitution and eliminate the right to vote for lower income people who vote Democratic. Taxes are theft of the property of the makers by the takers to use Ayn Rand’s terminology. And the scary thing is that Mike Pence and Paul Ryan, who are next in line to succeed Donald Trump, are both supporters of the Kochs.

  1. “Property rights before human rights.”

    Property rights are derived in extension to an individual is the owner of their own body that mandates compensation of labor through wages or bartered trade that can be utilized in investment/mal-investment as an extension of the individual’s own body.

    As a general rule of thumb, justice systems shifting to guilty until proven innocent also transition from civil rights to civil privileges utilizing the past precedent ‘if something can be granted, it can also be revoked’.

    “The Koch brothers’ plan to rewrite the Constitution and eliminate the right to vote for lower income people who vote Democratic.”

    If memory serves, the Koch Brothers are the principle financial contributors of Articles of Constitutional Convention, which omits or ignores States delegated some State powers to the Federal government through ratifying the US Constitution and further omits/ignores the delegate process for the proposed Constitutional Convention can be limited or snuffed altogether among other issues.
