Do you agree with the following statements?

We all deserve safety, food, water and shelter.

We all deserve equal access to education, employment and healthcare.

We all deserve equal access to economic participation.

We all deserve freedom of religion and speech.

We all deserve to not be mistreated or to have any of the above rights disrespected due to our perceived or real race, nationality, sexuality, gender, age, disability, or income.

If you agree with that, then you are like almost every person in the United States and also very likely almost everyone in the World.

So if we all agree, what the f*** is all the disruption about?

These statements MUST BE the guide that cuts through any political bull s***

Think of it like one of the “razors” of reasoning, like Occam’s razor is for simplifying analysis or research.

This can be called the “Bill of Rights” razor. In other words, my fellow Americans, it already existed and yet somehow attention-seekers and power-seekers purposely avoided this razor in their pursuit for control, specifically economic control.

So let’s apply the Bill of Rights razor to a few things:

Situation 1:

A police officer shoots and/or kills someone during a traffic stop. The victim was unarmed and committed no crime and was no danger to anyone. What should be done?

Well according to the Bill of Rights razor, that officer took away a person’s right to safety within their own body. Therefore, this is a crime and should be punished.

Situation 2:

A person arrives at a hospital, clearly overdosing on something. What should be done?

Clearly, proper healthcare should be applied to preserve this person’s life and health.
