It may come as a surprise for average citizens, but it should not be difficult for critical thinkers to understand; the United States State Department is unable to provide a reliable government charter for developing societies. This is a problem and is why authoritarianism remains an easier solution.
The American form of government is a product of its evolution of ad hoc adjustments, and cannot be replicated. And, we do not have to look very far to recognize that Americans play a game of contradiction when it comes to the reliability of the government. Supreme Court Justice Thomas recently described the government as, “a car with only three wheels.” An awkward analogy for the old man on the Bench, but nonetheless, the audience enjoyed a laugh. There was no murmur of blasphemy, and no congress member called for impeachment the following week.
As it is, there are numerous recent opinions published suggesting that Americans are on the verge of civil war. Some may disagree, but ultimately, our partisan chaos trickles down causing the social disorder we endure. Personal frustration, social disagreements, political protests, riots, workplace violence, and general crime, are not all unrelated to the government system’s failed approach to Domestic Tranquility.
How is this for a theory?
The Three-part Separation Theory is incomplete, it does not define the subdivision of the three parts. Some, if not all, of the founders, were aware of the incompleteness of the Three-part Separation Theory, but there was not much they could do about it. The founders had to improvise everything beyond the concept of three parts. Remember the Connecticut Compromise was about balancing state representation that was unique only to the situation of the “several states.” Just because the founders did it that way does not mean that it is correct and just.
The simple deployment of the Three-part Separation Theory only prevents any one person from ascending to a dictatorship. Except, of course, in the situation of Donald Trump with his amazing abilities and ceaseless ambition to rule the world more than Madonna ever dreamed of.
The simple deployment of the Three-part Separation Theory does not prevent the partisan quest for control of the three parts. In political science it is called an, “oligarchy,” and it should have been very easy for political scientists to detect this phenomenon and its cause. James Madison recognized the probable solution and described it in Federalist Paper 51. The passage is often quoted, but comprehending it and pursuing it has obviously been ignored by the most brilliant Constitutional scholars.
The necessary information had yet to be revealed, and the composition manipulation technology had yet to be invented. Even if the founders had the list of executive security departments, congressional committees, and demarcation of courts, that we have now to figure out the proper subdivision of the three parts, they still would have lacked the hierarchy notation technology necessary for organizing the directive systems that are necessary to compose the sophisticated integration of the increased number of separated entities. They needed that kind of technology just to deploy the three parts properly, but they did not have it, and they did not get it right, and the skewed approach to domestic tranquility that we endure is the result of that deficiency.
So the solution is to find a theory for subdividing the three parts - any ideas out there?
