|The U.S. Presidential Election in the Year 2000.....|
|The pending results of this election pose an outstanding opportunity to apply the formative principles. They do so where the participants' self-interests overridingly display the immoral alternative before a world in which many other social contracts are even more immoral by degree. That is, the ever-shifting, personally-convenient and ultimately-divisive "enlightened self-interests on display here provide a point-by-point departure from that humanly-common formative source which truly does present the moral alternative which could remove this society from its lamentable condition.|
Moral Applications in point-by-point formation....
The social rights of all citizens/consumers
at the interface of their primary private rights their
political participation within the voting booth takes priority over the
interests of their political custodians, some of whom they'd elect there. This means that:
In conclusion, if America truly had a democracy with equality accorded equally to, for and of all the people within its geopolitical borders, there'd be no politically-sanctioned political borders protecting its "states" rights- "rights which further subdivide into counties or parishes, cities and other delimited borders. These require hierarchical divisions of conceived authority... those which actually delegate to the peoples' public-sector politicians in the first instance. This not only would help make the electoral process moral but would simplify an overly-complicated system of government which needlessly wastes its resources... resources which measure through and allocate from the concept of "money..." one which itself has an illicit presence from within the private sector to empower their undemocratic rulers as men unequally within the electoral process and otherwise.
That Ralph Nader and the American Green party intuitively knew much of this without formative awareness... that they also are among those victimized... that they also had presented the best alternative from the electoral outset is focal. They knew that both Bush and Gore ultimately and essentially have let those who control the money concept through global corporations also call the shots in contravention of a true democracy, freedom and equality- all of which consequently itself is to be lamented.
That many voters took the morally-relative view that voting for him and La Duke was a "wasted vote" and opted for "the lesser of two evils" then also became a self-fulfilling prophecy through which they perpetuated the very electoral system within an overriding social system which first enslaved them. Perhaps the illicit rule of men within their own controlling and monopolized media in its frenzy over the unusual electoral issues now presented truly and ultimately will permit Americans to move toward their true "national interest" in the democracy, freedom and equality to which they entitle.... Perhaps and within a desirable "constitutional crisis" they next will at least transition to a moral social contract by electing those like Nader whose enactable concepts more nearly approach the humanly-common authority of that truly-moral rule of law- not men- which the formative source hierarchically presents as those word-formatives which politically could replace the word-concepts of "law" within our analogous language. Still, that's within the ultimate formative question for our species....
