The Death of “Never Again”

 

After the Shoah, the Holocaust, the Jewish People made a promise to one another of, “Never Again.” The world echoed the call, “Never Again.” Most notably, Europe and particularly Germany echoed the call, “Never Again.” Now the world stands at the brink which they will break their promise of, “Never Again.” One need merely search the news to see the ever-increasing rate of attacks upon Jews simply because they are Jews. European leaders speak of their increased efforts to address anti-Semitism after each attack. France has placed military personnel to guard Jewish daycares, preschools, education centers, Synagogues and events throughout France. Britain and Germany have declared they are taking steps to fight against anti-Semitism with Germany appointing Dr. Felix Klein to take charge of the efforts at education and other means of fighting anti-Semitism. Dr. Klein will take his position sometime this month. There have been warnings sent initially through delicate warnings requesting that Jews not affix Mezuzahs on their doors as such identifiers upon their homes could make them targets. This proved to be insufficient; so then, they made the next demand less delicately advising Jews to stop wearing their Kippahs. For some Jews, that proved a demand too far as they refused to uncover their heads. This meant that they had to limit their lives by remaining only in what they thought to be “safe areas,” some of which proved not to be sufficiently safe.

 

Never Again!

 

For Jews these events, though difficult, are not something new to the Jewish People as we can look back across our history and find all too numerous similarities with which to compare these events. During the Spanish Inquisition the Jews were forced to convert to Christianity, but some refused to forsake their traditional religion and practiced Judaism in silence and well-concealed in order to avoid detection and a tortured and horrible end. These Jews were to become known as Marranos. Throughout the world, there are instances where the Jews were forced to profess faith in other religions while conforming to their Judaism privately and in complete secrecy. Sometimes these Jews would form groups with ten men so they could have a minyan making their prayers more complete as some prayers require ten men in order to perform and reading of Torah also requires a minyan. This would obviously cause these members to be more readily caught by the authorities but they believed that on certain holy days the risk was worth the reward they would receive from being able to perform a complete service with a Torah reading making it all the more satisfying. These conditions of forced conversions and secretive practice of their Judaism were more universal than many historians have recorded both in Christian and Islamic world and before either when the Jews resided under foreign exile or occupation including the Roman, Greek, Persian and Babylonian to name a few. \

 

“Never Again” was intended to mean that the Jewish People were never to be made embarrassed, harassed or intimidated into hiding their Judaism as a requirement for their safety. Never Again was supposed to provide a conscience in the world such that after thirty-five-hundred-years Jews would finally be safe within the world. Israel took in the approximate million Jews who were forced from the Arab and Muslim world providing them with assured safety from the anti-Semitism which has never been purged from the Islamic world or from the Quran and the preaching of Imams. Now there is rising anti-Semitism, both from Islamic refugees, extreme right wing anti-Semitism and leftist anti-Semitism are combining making the roughly one and a half million Jews of Europe becoming endangered. They have a refuge they can take in Israel and increasing numbers have begun to do exactly that. There are also troubling signs across the Atlantic Ocean in the United States and Canada which are also at the very leading edge of increasing anti-Semitism. The problem is far from as obvious as it is in Europe, but it has become troubling to those who follow such trends as they are witnessing the same numbers as were present in Europe starting about three decades past.

 

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has released a worldwide survey of the state of anti-Semitism in 2014 with a partial update showing anti-Semitism in 2015 in easily seen maps and tables. There is even a page where one can compare nation to nation using it to see where your country stands compared to others or any other comparison one would care to see. The one problem with the ADL surveys are they have rapidly become dated as a measure where Europe and even the United States and Canada are concerned, as the increases in these areas of the developed world have been quite distressing. Of course, we cannot expect that the ADL will be performing another survey in the near future, though we would love for them to do so for 2020 and make it as easily accessed as their 2014 and 2015 versions have been made. The ADL might refrain from doing such as they likely would be hesitant to actually recognize exactly how sad the situation is becoming. What is really sad is how fast Germany and the nations which were willing, or somewhat less than willingly, under the rule of the Third Reich have fallen back so severely despite their joining in the concept of “Never Again” and have permitted the pernicious hatred that is anti-Semitism returning in such strength, especially with the youth of today. Where did the leadership go wrong and divert from the path returning to their old hatreds and habits including anti-Semitism. Perhaps we should try and suggest some reasons.

 

Perhaps the greatest mishandling of the problem has been the selling of the concept of “Never Again” as the answer to prevent the singular event of the Shoah, the Holocaust, of ever reoccurring. “Never Again” is not an answer to just the Shoah but to every attempt through the ages to kill off the Jewish People. These attempts began in Egypt over thirty-five-hundred-years ago and continued through with, but not limited to, the Persians, Greeks, Romans, Spanish Inquisition, the Caliphate and the Nazis. They have not taught that the Jewish People and their rules and codes became some of the founding principles of the current European and modern world governance. Much of human rights are based on the Judeo-Christian ethics which are all based in Jewish thought. Continued Jewish thought and culture continued to add to the humanity of man and to the sciences, culture, society and every aspect of human existence. There has been almost no mention of how much poorer humanity would be without what the Jews have contributed to all aspects of human existence. Even boxing would have been lees the art it has become in sports without the contribution of a Jewish man called Daniel Mendoza. He was credited with introducing the scientific art of boxing. Then there are the somewhat more famous and well-known Jews such as Sigmund Freud, Niels Bohr, Baruch de Spinoza, Albert Einstein, Sandy Koufax, Groucho Marx, Gene Simmons, Franz Kafka, Peter Sellers, Joan Rivers, Marc Chagall, George Gershwin, Jonas Salk, Albert Sabin, Hank Greenberg, Max Baer, Benny Leonard, Lyle Alzado, Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye and Dr. Ruth Westheimer. We could continue with a long list of scientists, entertainers, musicians, artists, philosophers, comediennes and religious scholars.

Perhaps a lesson in middle school where the contributions of Jews throughout history to virtually every field of endeavor would make an impression, especially with lists of Jews in such fields as music, sports, entertainment and other fields with which Jews are not always associated. Also showcasing the contributions throughout history where they often made contributions which are not well known today such as Haym Salomon who was a Polish-born American Jewish businessman and personally backed loans from France to finance the American Revolution from which he ended up bankrupt. And, of course, there is the reality that without Judaism there would be no Christianity or Islam as both trace back to Judaism as their roots and being Abrahamic faiths. These ideas would not eradicate anti-Semitism, but perhaps a realization that the Jewish People have contributed quite a great deal to humanity throughout the ages in virtually every field of endeavor might give some pause to reconsider their opinion of Jews. Anti-Semitism will never completely disappear, as there are records of anti-Semitism existing in towns, villages and even cities where people have never met a Jew and some where no Jew has ever been recorded to have lived. But if we can change some people’s thoughts on the Jewish People and as much of anti-Semitism is handed down within families, neighborhoods, societal norms and other means, every person turned from anti-Semitism could have an ever-widening effect over time. If nothing is done, what will the world be like once every nation has rid themselves of their Jews and Jews only reside in Israel? Oddly enough, even then the world will have its share of anti-Semitism and there will be efforts to destroy Israel if only to be rid of the imagined effect the Jews have on life around the globe. How can we know this? Well, because anti-Semitism has existed in places around the world before the Jewish People had been spread around the world by conquering empires with the best known being the Roman dispersion intended to wipe out Judaism from the world as punishment for revolting against Roman rule just a little too efficiently. It is that exile which the Jewish People are finally returning home to Israel after almost two-thousand-years.

As Goes France Go Europe then America

 

Over the past decade, France has witnessed just over one grisly slaughtering of a Jew each year.* Mireille Knoll, an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor, was stabbed multiple times and then left in her burning Paris apartment to bleed and burn to death simultaneously. The first was Ilan Halimi who was befriended by a woman and when she asked him to meet her for a drink, little did he know he was to become a sacrificial lamb in nearly a month of torture.** The other people residing in the apartment block had to have heard the blood curdling screams the young man released begging for help and eventually for death. After almost a month of pure hell, he was finally released as told in the article, “On February 13, at five o’clock in the morning, Ilan was first shaven, like six million other Jews, and flung into the forest by his torturers. He managed to take the mask off his eyes, and as Fofana later reported, look them straight in the eye. I am a human being, his eyes told them. He received a few knife stabs for that. Then, like many of the six million before him he was set on fire and burned alive, having been sprayed with a flammable substance. Then his tormentors left.” One of his tormentors, Fofana, upon sentence being passed stated proudly, even defiantly, “I killed a Jew, and for that I will go to Paradise.” There was no remorse or even the ability to identify with their victim as human because he was a Jew after all. These murders over the past ten years have taken everyone from children as young as three, six and ten shot in the Toulouse Jewish school shootings which also took the life of one of the school’s Rabbis and father to the youngest victims.# These were the murders just in France where the greatest numbers of European Jews reside. France’s Jewish population at last count was approximately four-hundred-fifty-thousand people. Next greatest reside in the United Kingdom with an approximate numbers of Jews of two-hundred-ninety-thousand and next is Germany with a Jewish population of approximately one-hundred-fifteen-thousand and the remainder of Europe having far less. The total European Jewish population is approximately one and one-half-million which is a mere fifteen-hundredths of one percent of Europe’s total population. That is next to nothing and yet the continent apparently finds even that few to be far too many.

 

The remainder of Europe has fewer violent acts of anti-Semitism simply due to lack of available options, available Jews of whom to victimize. As per the article “Anti-Semitism is still alive in Germany as Jews face ‘disturbing’ discrimination,” the combination of Islamic immigrant anti-Semitism and resurgent ‘right-wing’ anti-Semitism has led to problematic situations. Displaying the rise of publicly expressed anti-Semitism was most obvious when in Berlin demonstrations celebrated the commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the death of leading Nazi figure Rudolf Hess, on Aug. 19, 2017 (see image below). As is most usual, there is very little reporting of ‘left-wing’ anti-Semitism. Where this is a relatively new situation, the rise of anti-Semitism on the left exists and must not be given a free pass, as it is just as dangerous and real as the other forms of anti-Semitism. Alternative for Germany Party (AfD), is currently the third-largest party in the Bundestag (German Parliament) a mere four years after it was founded. The AfD drums up support with nationalist and anti-Semitic rhetoric as well as anti-immigrant chants. Some AfD members have expressed desires to have Nazi soldiers remembered as patriots. As stated, anti-Semitism is rising, one might claim rampant, across Europe as reported by the BBC in their article Fans protest during Holocaust tribute at Serie A matches where it was reported, “On Sunday at Rome’s Olympic Stadium a section of Lazio fans known as the “ultras” – known for their racist chants and often violent behaviour – left stickers of Holocaust victim Frank in a Roma jersey alongside anti-Semitic slogans such as ‘Roma fans are Jews’.

Anti-Semitism is on the rise across Europe with some places having become almost impossible for Jews to remain in their homes and even their synagogues have been firebombed. The worst of these attacks have come in Sweden with the town of Malmo amongst the most prevalent in violent acts of anti-Semitism. Malmo Mayor Ilmar Reepalu had advised Jews who want to be safe in Malmo to reject Zionism. Though he has condemned anti-Semitism, Reepalu has called Zionism a form of ‘extremism’ comparable with anti-Semitism, said the Jewish community had been ‘infiltrated’ by anti-Muslim agents and denied that Muslims perpetrated the attacks on Malmo Jews. In an article written for the Huffingtonpost titled, “Rising Anti-Semitism in Europe: History Repeating Once Again,” goes into some depth about the rising levels of anti-Semitism across Europe. European anti-Semitism is a dire threat rising once more, but then again, European anti-Semitism and its counterpart across all of the Arab and almost all the Muslim world, particularly the MENA## States. The Jews, originally the Israelites, were conquered by Babylon when the Northern Kingdom fell in 722 BCE leading to the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The remainder, Judah, the southern kingdom, was subsequently conquered by Babylon in around 610 to 605 BCE. The Judeans were eventually to be known as simply the Jews. After Babylon, the Jews were conquered and subjugated by the Persians, Greeks and Romans. The Romans dispersed the Jews as they had the Carthaginians in an effort to destroy those two peoples as well as others who the Romans destroyed. The Jews survived their dispersion and continued to be subjugated by Europeans and after the conquest by Islam in 636 CE and the subjugation of the MENA states followed soon thereafter right up to the current day. Torah and traditions and practices in the Oral Law written in the Talmud, which is a living document of Judaism where every idea and practice is discussed and argued from all sides. Some arguments are posed simply to force clarification of a concept or action being discussed and does not necessarily, or in some cases even in the wildest interpretation, actually convey Jewish thought and are used for argument only. Often it is these arguments which are cherry-picked and made public with the intent of shaming Jews and disgracing Judaism. Such practices are known false representations but still crop up in use by the anti-Semites. The MENA States (which were also the Caliphates and then the Ottoman Empire through to World War I) along with Europe often treated their Jewish populations as victim populations upon who all ills were blamed often leading to pogroms, murderous rages, burning of their Jews and other atrocities often beyond imagination. Jews would be forced from one city or nation to another over and over never really finding their real home. The vast majority of Jews have been forced from their lives and homes across the MENA States so the remaining anti-Semitism is more often targeted at Israel. Europe still has a Jewish population but it is slipping away, or should we be honest and call it what it is, fleeing.

 

There is a remaining problem, America. What makes this problem so easy to ignore is that American Jews appear oblivious to the problem. Even the New York Times has written about the lack of reaction by American Jews in their article titled “Anti-Semitism Is Rising. Why Aren’t American Jews Speaking Up? The reason is easy and even obvious to any neutral observer with even a modicum of intelligence. The answer is there are Jews who have noted the rising anti-Semitism, but their voices do not matter, as they currently are the minority. These are the Orthodox Jews who reside largely in close, long established communities in major metropolitan areas such as Cleveland, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Greeley and, of course, New York. They are also largely conservative and vote predominantly Republican and while vocal within their community, they otherwise appear rather silent, well, that is when compared to their brethren who are far more political and rather less religious.

 

The Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist and non-conventional Jews are vocally political and some congregations have adopted the leftist political agenda as the structure around which they build their Judaism. They run numerous NGOs which support left leaning ideas such as gun control, open borders, free abortions, free tuition, urban renewal, nuke free world and the entire plethora of similar pie in the sky, pipe dream and utopian agenda. They are blind to any kind of problems, shortcomings or other complications which make the left just as possible to make mistakes and errors in judgement as the right wing which is constantly scurrilously attacked by the left and their media allies. These politically active Jews are far more boisterous and make themselves heard and often fill the argument drowning out all else. Because they are so enamored with the left and leftist causes, they also are blind to any deficiencies and even when they do see such problems, they will find some means of explaining them away. A glaring example was the known relationship between President Obama and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the mutual relationship they held with Minister Louis Farrakhan, a known and severe anti-Semite. The same is true of most of the anti-Semitism prevalent on the left with such people as Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the Women’s March who emphatically made a statement when they stated that the Women’s Movement has no room for Zionism. Even after this statement made in order to exclude feminists if they were pro-Israel because being a Jew who believes in the right of your people to have what is granted almost all other peoples, their own nation to call home, then you cannot be a feminist. Truth is, the left is slowly but inexorably moving towards a place where in order to truly be accepted, one must first declare their hatred for the State of Israel. Now for the saddest and most distressing item, many leftist Jews see no problem with this and blindly jump onboard with defaming and attempting to destroy the Jewish State. Israel is the Jews Second Amendment, the place where Jews will be protected from all threats no matter their origins. We can only ask such Jews a simple question. When the left finally reaches the unavoidable end of their slide into anti-Zionism, anti-Israelism and their anti-religion, especially Judaism, and decides that the world must once again exterminate its Jews, where will they run?

Elitist Leftist Will Destroy America

 

The elitists who lead the far left and other dedicated followers by the nose promising that they will feel great about themselves and have great feelings of self worth and superior morality will never destroy the United States, they will just destroy America making it simply the U. S. and never again the U.S.A. The main difference is the form of government and how it is chosen and allowed to govern. America is a bottom up system where the majority of powers are at the town, city, county and district level and the least power over the people’s lives is in Washington D.C. This brings the power closer to the people and allows for ever solution to represent the people over which it will be utilized. The elitist leftists desire that their infinite wisdom over how everyone must live their lives believe in a top down system where by the time you get to local government, their only job is to follow orders and implement what Washington D.C. has dictated to them through the State governments. These are the people who control the Deep State and who have been running the Federal Government since President Lyndon Baines Johnson used the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to pass the most massive alteration of power and society since President Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the New Deal, thus President Johnson naming his legislative behemoth the Great Society was quite apropos. From that point forward, every ensuing government, whether Democrat or Republican, placed additional power into the Federal Government and the inside tracks were controlled by top level Civil Servants who were immune from being fired and whose lease on power dates back to those initially hired top people under President Johnson. When President Jimmy Carter opened the Federal Department of Education, he chose the top people, all progressives. President Ronal Reagan arrived; he attempted to scale government back, so this champion of the people who wished to empower them did nothing to change the power structure of the bureaucracy. The following Presidents Bush-Clinton-Bush were all big government progressives and only built additional layers with the same people at the top running the now almost all powering Deep State and the plan was all but complete. All that was required was for certain departments to be flushed with cash such that their budgets would almost double. This was accomplished by the first three years of President Obama and then his remaining five years were used to allow these new levels of government funding to become normal all while claiming to have capped spending. It is easy to cap spending after almost doubling the debt and the size of funding initially.

 

Deep State

Deep State

 

This finished the construction of the behemoth we call the Deep State and unless Congress will allow President Donald Trump to fire civil service workers, the Deep State will easily survive his time in office and all that he cuts can be reinstated by the next progressive, be they Republican or Democrat, to take the White House. Some of you are demanding that we name any Republicans who would be almost as horrible, as the most leftist Democrat such as Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton from wherever, and Nancy Pelosi of California. Well, why not try Jeb Bush of Florida, Mitt Romney formerly of Massachusetts now from Utah, Marco Rubio also from Florida and a host of other establishment Republicans. The Republican Party standard is currently that they are somewhat less progressive than the Democrats. President Trump is an outlier who did not pass through the political grinding mechanisms which turn once proud individualist powering the people leaders such as Jim Bridenstine from Oklahoma’s First District who will not be in Congress long as he proved resistant to the reshaping mechanisms by which such great leaders are made from men to mice, so Jim Bridenstine has instead been nominated to head up NASA, a dream of his that he cannot resist. Those they cannot make mad, they transfer out. President Trump is an anti-progressive but unless permitted to fire top civil servants, all the trimming he does will be for naught. The people at the top promote like-minded people such that the system cannot be changed and it will always keep its elitist leftist outlook led by elites hand chosen from within by the former elites. That is the horror of the Deep State, it is self perpetuating unless a President with the gumption to take them on is provided the weapons to do just that, and that would require making some alterations to the Civil Service and allow the President to fire civil servants, specifically those above grade level twelve, in other words, the leaders and the head of the beast. The only other means would be to start chopping off entire departments starting with Education and working oneself back to the original sized Cabinet that President George Washington started with, namely the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of War (Defense Department). Just rid the Administration of all the rest of the fat and then trim these departments down to essential personnel and pick those top positions and make the best of it.

 

Instead of three departments, the current Administrative Departments number over or around twenty, and they are Executive Office of the President, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of the Treasury, Department of Immigration and Department of Veterans Affairs. We likely missed one or two but this is sufficient to show the growth since the start of the United States of America and how the America is being lopped-off. There is apparently at least one department covering virtually every aspect of life and through which these areas are outside of the people’s control. What makes matters even more serious is that the Congress no longer sets policy nor do they craft real laws. The legislation passed by the Congress and signed by Presidents lays out the results they desire and then leaves the nuts and bolts for enacting these results to the various Secretaries of Departments they view as required to establish the needed filler and often they end the bills with a small aside allowing for the inclusion of all other departments determined to be needed to comply with the aims of this legislation. That is card-blanche for permitting these pieces of legislation to be passed through every department with each permitted to write regulations, which are enforced as if they were laws, which they feel they need and can claim are attached to accomplishing the aims of the legislation. That is right, the Deep State writes the particulars and actual enforceable parts to the legislation as they see fit. This means that the Deep State actually defines the laws of the land to fit their desires and not those of the President or the Congress who only get to suggest ideas, not enact them. All of the Deep State could be avoided if the Congress would actually write the entirety of the laws and not leave anything up for determination by the Deep State thus cutting them out of the process. The only other means is to have a Constitutional Amendment requiring for Congress to vote on each regulation and the President to sign them before they are enacted. Such an amendment will never come through the Congress, as they really prefer not to have to think or actually work. The unfortunate reality is the United States is ruled by the Deep State and until the entirety of the government in Washington D.C. is dismantled, everybody fired, and started over, preferably with just five departments, State, Treasury, Defense (the original three), Judicial, Transportation, Import-Export (instead of Commerce) and Border Security (replacing Homeland Security, Immigration). Make it that no new departments can be formed without the agreement by three-quarters of the states which must be acquired within ten years of the initial petition with no extensions permitted.

 

The Deep State was something designed by the political elite from probably the brain trust of President Kennedy and the Great Society designed by President Johnson. The reality is it might actually for back to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt with his New Deal or even to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson, the trio who make up the start of the progressive movement in the United States and the eventual end of America. The whole idea behind progressivism is that there exist within a society a group of highly educated, supremely intelligent and very self-assured individuals who know better how you should live your life than do you. Thus, these individuals are placed atop the society, ensconced within the government in positions of great power but untouchable and secured in their post such that they actually decide the rules and laws, not the elected officials such as the Congress and President as they are chosen by the rabble. These elites who run a bureaucracy which makes the actual applied laws also builds a structure so enormous and inefficient that it becomes impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff and thus they become secured atop a tangled menagerie of which no single human being can begin to understand the scope nor unravel the tangled array they find before them. In the end, and President Trump may end up realizing this before he actually does any damage to the real power holders, these elites choose their own replacements and lay just outside the reach of crusading politicians who promise to end the Deep State. This is how the United States will be run, as there are no people willing to brave the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune which they would face if they even began to touch the Deep State power structure. The war has been lost and America has fallen and President Trump might be capable of saving her and restoring the United States of America, but he had better hurry, as time is a wasting. The Deep State is thus far winning in this epic battle but one thing we have seen is never underestimate the Donald, he might slay the beast yet, though we predict it would take a general uprising to reform the government now. We hope America survives as the United States without America is more to be feared than admired and America is more than simply worth saving, America is crucial to saving for the United States to be prevented from slipping to the “Dark Side of the Force.”

 

There is one last item, speech codes. Should hate speech legislation ever reach the claws of the Deep State, the war will be lost or need to go underground and be taken-on at great risk. Hate Speech Codes will prevent real discussion as only those terminologies approved by the Deep State will be permitted. It will be the Orwellian Newspeak from that point forward where words will start to disappear. There will be specific Deep State friendly language with which one may refer to ideas and some ideas will be taken from language. Freedom will mean slavery to the system, War will mean peace, and Ignorance will mean strength with other words also being redefined. Choice will mean obedience and Joy will mean compliance and such redefining of terminology. Nothing will remain of America once hate speech restrictions become law and part of the tangled web called regulations. Everyone will be required to check the new dictionary which will be on the Internet and the list of permitted words will grow smaller and the meanings more removed from what the old people remember. Already, in many schools there is no such thing as an individual grade as now everything is done in groups where the smartest children are spread around so every group has at least one and the group gets a group grade. This means that the smartest children will work and achieve a high grade for them and for every member of their group including the least gifted student in the class. This new theory for education is how everybody passes with a similar grade. This is being carried over into employers where everything becomes a team project where the great and the small are melded into a single entity and all rise and fall together. Refuse to work in the group, then you do not work period. And this system will be so ingrained from school that nobody will think this is strange or weird, working alone will be the odd idea. Newspeak and Newthink will rule in this coming world unless the people rise up and demand their control back and the system be rebooted from an original disk where only that utterly necessary to act according to the Constitution is retained and the rest of big government Deep State is broken up and distributed back to the states and down to the local elected board.

 

The measuring stick for the retooling of the government, it is right there in the Bill of Rights in Amendment X,

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

 

Unless the Constitution assigns a power to the Federal Government or specifically denies it to the individual states, then it belongs under State Rights to the individual States or, preferably, to the people themselves. That is the meaning, that the power belongs with the people and they allow certain items, particular items, to pass to the local government. The local government then can ask the next higher form of governance to take certain defined responsibilities. This eventually gives the individual states their areas and those beyond their means such as defending the country; these and only these are granted to the government in Washington D.C. The Congress and the President are only permitted the powers granted them by the Constitution or passed to them by the individual states. The states get their power from the lower governments who get their power from the people. If the people have not relinquished their power in an area, then the Federal Government has absolutely no right to administrate, regulate, or pass laws concerning that right. The power of the people is presumed absolute and that is the magic which defines America. We have no idea what defines the United States except it is not empowering the people, rather it is enslaving the individuality of the people, and that is going way too far.
