    And I want to point out that what is seen by Americans (self-destructively) as "socialist" -- is embraced by the entire world, modeled after the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Almost all UN member nations have signed on to the Declaration and have rewritten their constitutions to incorporate it.

    The US constitution does not confer human rights onto the people. It was written, with great compromise, to benefit slave owners. Thus, our situation in the 21st century is burdened by a structural flaw from the 18th century. Americans seem unable to deal with the reality of their situation and continue to believe that there is a political solution to a structural problem.
