To the editor:
This is a story about the true meaning of a national debt, its inherent harm to the populace, and what sort of world everyone would live in without this debt.
Few people, even economists, mention that we actually have two different debts: individual debt or private debt, and public debt, which is, in a sense, what we owe to ourselves.
In reality, the national debt ($16 trillion and rising) and private debt both feed upon each other. They are like a relationship of parasite to host, and neither one could exist without the other.
What causes this debt buildup, and what would life in the world be like without it? Today, there is a hidden group of persons known as “parasitical elites.” Their identities remain hidden and unknown, but they are able to live sumptuous lives at the expense of the lives and well-being of the rest of the world.
First of all, we need a “protection only” type of national budget, reduced to courts, military and police. Second, we need a “prime law of no military force” to our Constitution, which would override all laws based upon the use of force. And we need a Great Displacement Program, selling off most government properties to the private sector.
The prime law (Individual rights Amendment, Universal Constitution) is the one law our founding fathers missed in writing our nearly flawless Constitution.
A much better, different and happier existence lies outside of our present ability to conceive of its existence. Some call it the civilization of the universe, but it is possible for it to someday become a reality on this small and beautiful planet, just as it is throughout the rest of the universe.
