You're absolutely right of course, the first 10 amendments do apply to government not to the people. But they mean nothing unless...insist they be followed. My main purpose was to defend anarchy, knowing it has so many negative conotations to people. This reply from Joe aka Solitar is what got me to respond.
Anarchism is a great dream -- for a community, nation and planet populated by one person.
Have two people and one of them becomes a leader.
Have three people and two are a tyrannical majority over the third.
Beyond that you get into monarchy, tyranny, aristocracy, oligarchy, democracy, anarchy -- in that viscious circle that Machiavelli described from his experience and knowledge of history. The first, third, and fifth can be very good; the second, fourth, and sixth often are extremely bad.
Interesting that he didn't even mention communism and thinks democracy is better than anarchy. He must be a happy person now that socialism/democracy is rampant. Aren't we supposed to be a republic!! Either way, it's nice to be able to communicate with others who are interested in living free and not just waving a flag and feeling good.
