The “long train of abuses and usurpations”

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” — T. Jefferson, DOI, 7-4-1776

The current “long train of abuses and usurpations” is so long now that it is impossible to see the end of it. Our inalienable rights have fallen into the hands of an alien government. The crooked line from the 1930s to now has left us impressed in service to a gargantuan state that hovers over and leans into us every moment of every day for our entire lives like an obese giant with foul breath. It has inflicted a culture of death on our posterity. It willfully acts against our every interest. It bankrupts us. It seeks to control every aspect of our lives. It seizes children from their parents and cultivates in them anathema and disease in the name of education.
