Thomas Jefferson said, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground,” and that has been borne out by history with the few bright exceptions in which society demanded the freedom to live as they ought. The founding of the United States of America was one of those bright moments. Often described as an experiment, it was one of the most improbable series of events in history in which people threw off the shackles of their government and sought out to see if they could rule themselves.
As we saw, the experiment was difficult to replicate. France immediately tried to do it and ended up burning their country down in a reign of terror. Russia tried it and not only killed off 30 million of her own people but nearly brought the world to nuclear oblivion. As we have seen with the “democracy-building” projects in the Middle East, it’s not as easy as it may seem.

Furthermore, in a dark turn for social science, the American experiment itself appears to have ended in utter failure as well.
It was forewarned by the Founding Fathers. Jefferson said that “even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” And after the Framers had hammered out the U.S. Constitution in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin told an inquiring woman that the congress had produced, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.”
As long as we maintain our 2nd Amendment and we don’t have foreign armies inside our borders, it’s still a test of the American Experiment.
We found we had enemies within and they are influenced by enemies without. Corruption had been the theme of the day and will be for as long as China’s CCP is working against us. Many things need to change in our relationship.
We’re right now in the middle of one of those ‘American Experiment’ tests. The results aren’t in. They don’t look good right now but I suspect America is rallying. It’s much too soon to make that call. Personally, I think that leadership in America has stepped up and is making the difference.
