313. My Passion For Science in America
(1) theoretical science, which identifies principles and abstract notions and are either unknown or very remote;
(2) practical science, which is composed of general truths that belongs to theoretical science and leads to practical science; and
(3) the application of science.
But Alexis also talks about the love of science and the interest of those Americans who seek abstract truths. I am one of those Americans. Thus, the desire to utilize knowledge is one thing. But the pure desire to know is another. Among many Americans, Alexis found Americans who are selfish and mercantile and have a trading taste for money. These Americans cannot develop the passion that exists in the heart of a few Americans.
Alexis also knew what happened when China was absorbed in productive industry. The greater part of its sciences were lost. Today, China is still trying to recover its science. The Americans have also been absorbed by a productive industry. Based on this industry, all knowledge of God, the universe, atoms, democracies, human lives, mathematics, and infrastructures is not of interest. So, Americans must turn around.
I say that Americans are not developing their minds properly. They develop too much logic and do not develop enough dialectics. Their minds are unable to lift physical science above materialism. So, Americans say that capitalism and socialism cannot be united. So these Americans reject Marx, Hegel, and Lenin, who have said that all knowledge must be derived from the development of physical and intellectual (natural and spiritual) life.
In 1872, an American (Henry C. Carey) accepted the development of physical, natural, and spiritual life in his book on 'The Unity of Law.' Carey says that capitalism is not an end. Instead, Carey says that capitalism is the instrument by help of which the work is done. So, capitalism and socialism must be brought together. In the 1970s, when double-digit inflation rose to 12 %, the service sector took a beating. So, Americans must make capitalism a real science.
Today, I will turn my attention away from my blogging to my third book.

312. The History of the American Minds
Below, Alexis de Tocqueville show us that the minds of Americans in the 19th century was moving downwardly. In the 20th century, I say that the American mind is moving downwardly fast. Alexis also inform us that the minds of the people in China are moving upwardly fast.
If a democratic state of society and democratic institutions do not retard the onward course of the human mind, they incontestably guide it in one direction in preference to another. Their efforts, thus circumscribed, are still exceedingly great, and I may be pardoned if I pause for a moment to contemplate them.
I had occasion, in speaking of the philosophical method of the American people, to make several remarks that it is necessary to make use of here. Equality begets in man the desire of judging of everything for himself; it gives him in all things a taste for the tangible and the real, a contempt for tradition and for forms. These general tendencies are principally discernible in the peculiar subject of this chapter.
Those who cultivate the sciences among a democratic people are always afraid of losing their way in visionary speculation. They mistrust systems; they adhere closely to facts and study facts with their own senses. As they do not easily defer to the mere name of any fellow man, they are never inclined to rest upon any man's authority; but, on the contrary, they are unremitting in their efforts to find out the weaker points of their neighbors' doctrine. Scientific precedents have little weight with them; they are never long detained by the subtlety of the schools nor ready to accept big words for sterling coin; they penetrate, as far as they can, into the principal parts of the subject that occupies them, and they like to expound them in the popular language. Scientific pursuits then follow a freer and safer course, but a less lofty one.
The mind, it appears to me, may divide science into three parts. The first comprises the most theoretical principles and those more abstract notions whose application is either unknown or very remote. The second is composed of those general truths that still belong to pure theory, but lead nevertheless by a straight and short road to practical results. Methods of application and means of execution make up the third. Each of these different portions of science may be separately cultivated, although reason and experience prove that no one of them can prosper long if it is absolutely cut off from the two others.
In America the purely practical part of science is admirably understood, and careful attention is paid to the theoretical portion which is immediately requisite to application. On this head the Americans always display a clear, free, original, and inventive power of mind. But hardly anyone in the United States devotes himself to the essentially theoretical and abstract portion of human knowledge. In this respect the Americans carry to excess a tendency that is, I think, discernible, though in a less degree, among all democratic nations.
Nothing is more necessary to the culture of the higher sciences or of the more elevated departments of science than meditation; and nothing is less suited to meditation than the structure of democratic society. We do not find there, as among an aristocratic people, one class that keeps quiet because it is well off; and another that does not venture to stir because it despairs of improving its condition. Everyone is in motion, some in quest of power, others of gain. In the midst of this universal tumult, this incessant conflict of jarring interests, this continual striving of men after fortune, where is that calm to be found which is necessary for the deeper combinations of the intellect? How can the mind dwell upon any single point when everything whirls around it, and man himself is swept and beaten onwards by the heady current that rolls all things in its course?
You must make the distinction between the sort of permanent agitation that is characteristic of a peaceful democracy and the tumultuous and revolutionary movements that almost always attend the birth and growth of democratic society. When a violent revolution occurs among a highly civilized people, it cannot fail to give a sudden impulse to their feelings and ideas. This is more particularly true of democratic revolutions, which stir up at once all the classes of which a people is composed and beget at the same time inordinate ambition in the breast of every member of the community. The French made surprising advances in the exact sciences at the very time at which they were finishing the destruction of the remains of their former feudal society; yet this sudden fecundity is not to be attributed to democracy, but to the unexampled revolution that attended its growth. What happened at that period was a special incident, and it would be unwise to regard it as the test of a general principle.
Great revolutions are not more common among democratic than among other nations; I am even inclined to believe that they are less so. But there prevails among those populations a small, distressing motion, a sort of incessant jostling of men, which annoys and disturbs the mind without exciting or elevating it. Men who live in democratic communities not only seldom indulge in meditation, but they naturally entertain very little esteem for it. A democratic state of society and democratic institutions keep the greater part of men in constant activity; and the habits of mind that are suited to an active life are not always suited to a contemplative one. The man of action is frequently obliged to content himself with the best he can get because he would never accomplish his purpose if he chose to carry every detail to perfection. He has occasion perpetually to rely on ideas that he has not had leisure to search to the bottom; for he is much more frequently aided by the seasonableness of an idea than by its strict accuracy; and in the long run he risks less in making use of some false principles than in spending his time in establishing all his principles on the basis of truth. The world is not led by long or learned demonstrations; a rapid glance at particular incidents, the daily study of the fleeting passions of the multitude, the accidents of the moment, and the art of turning them to account decide all its affairs.
In the ages in which active life is the condition of almost everyone, men are generally led to attach an excessive value to the rapid bursts and superficial conceptions of the intellect, and on the other hand to undervalue unduly its slower and deeper labors. This opinion of the public influences the judgment of the men who cultivate the sciences; they are persuaded that they may succeed in those pursuits without meditation, or are deterred from such pursuits as demand it.
There are several methods of studying the sciences. Among a multitude of men you will find a selfish, mercantile, and trading taste for the discoveries of the mind, which must not be confounded with that disinterested passion which is kindled in the heart of a few. A desire to utilize knowledge is one thing; the pure desire to know is another. I do not doubt that in a few minds and at long intervals an ardent, inexhaustible love of truth springs up, self-supported and living in ceaseless fruition, without ever attaining full satisfaction. It is this ardent love, this proud, disinterested love of what is true, that raises men to the abstract sources of truth, to draw their mother knowledge thence.
If Pascal had had nothing in view but some large gain, or even if he had been stimulated by the love of fame alone, I cannot conceive that he would ever have been able to rally all the powers of his mind, as he did, for the better discovery of the most hidden things of the Creator. When I see him, as it were, tear his soul from all the cares of life to devote it wholly to these researches and, prematurely snapping the links that bind the body to life, die of old age before forty, I stand amazed and perceive that no ordinary cause is at work to produce efforts so extraordinary.
The future will prove whether these passions, at once so rare and so productive, come into being and into growth as easily in the midst of democratic as in aristocratic communities. For myself, I confess that I am slow to believe it.
In aristocratic societies the class that gives the tone to opinion and has the guidance of affairs, being permanently and hereditarily placed above the multitude, naturally conceives a lofty idea of itself and of man. It loves to invent for him noble pleasures, to carve out splendid objects for his ambition. Aristocracies often commit very tyrannical and inhuman actions, but they rarely entertain groveling thoughts; and they show a kind of haughty contempt of little pleasures, even while they indulge in them. The effect is to raise greatly the general pitch of society. In aristocratic ages vast ideas are commonly entertained of the dignity, the power, and the greatness of man. These opinions exert their influence on those who cultivate the sciences as well as on the rest of the community. They facilitate the natural impulse of the mind to the highest regions of thought, and they naturally prepare it to conceive a sublime, almost a divine love of truth.
Men of science at such periods are consequently carried away towards theory; and it even happens that they frequently conceive an inconsiderate contempt for practice. "Archimedes," says Plutarch, "was of so lofty a spirit that he never condescended to write any treatise on the manner of constructing all these engines of war. And as he held this science of inventing and putting together engines, and all arts generally speaking which tended to any useful end in practice, to be vile, low, and mercenary, he spent his talents and his studious hours in writing only of those things whose beauty and subtlety had in them no admixture of necessity." Such is the aristocratic aim of science; it cannot be the same in democratic nations
The greater part of the men who constitute these nations are extremely eager in the pursuit of actual and physical gratification. As they are always dissatisfied with the position that they occupy and are always free to leave it, they think of nothing but the means of changing their fortune or increasing it. To minds thus predisposed, every new method that leads by a shorter road to wealth, every machine that spares labor, every instrument that diminishes the cost of production, every discovery that facilitates pleasures or augments them, seems to be the grandest effort of the human intellect. It is chiefly from these motives that a democratic people addicts itself to scientific pursuits, that it understands and respects them. In aristocratic ages science is more particularly called upon to furnish gratification to the mind; in democracies, to the body.
You may be sure that the more democratic, enlightened, and free a nation is, the greater will be the number of these interested promoters of scientific genius and the more will discoveries immediately applicable to productive industry confer on their authors gain, fame, and even power. For in democracies the working class take a part in public affairs; and public honors as well as pecuniary remuneration may be awarded to those who deserve them.
In a community thus organized, it may easily be conceived that the human mind may be led insensibly to the neglect of theory; and that it is urged, on the contrary, with unparalleled energy, to the applications of science, or at least to that portion of theoretical science which is necessary to those who make such applications. In vain will some instinctive inclination raise the mind towards the loftier spheres of the intellect; interest draws it down to the middle zone. There it may develop all its energy and restless activity and bring forth wonders. These very Americans who have not discovered one of the general laws of mechanics have introduced into navigation an instrument that changes the aspect of the world.
Assuredly I do not contend that the democratic nations of our time are destined to witness the extinction of the great luminaries of man's intelligence, or even that they will never bring new lights into existence. At the age at which the world has now arrived, and among so many cultivated nations perpetually excited by the fever of productive industry, the bonds that connect the different parts of science cannot fail to strike the observer; and the taste for practical science itself, if it is enlightened, ought to lead men not to neglect theory. In the midst of so many attempted applications of so many experiments repeated every day, it is almost impossible that general laws should not frequently be brought to light; so that great discoveries would be frequent, though great inventors may be few.
I believe, moreover, in high scientific vocations. If the democratic principle does not, on the one hand, induce men to cultivate science for its own sake, on the other it enormously increases the number of those who do cultivate it. Nor is it credible that among so great a multitude a speculative genius should not from time to time arise inflamed by the love of truth alone. Such a one, we may be sure, would dive into the deepest mysteries of nature, whatever the spirit of his country and his age. He requires no assistance in his course; it is enough that he is not checked in it. All that I mean to say is this: permanent inequality of conditions leads men to confine themselves to the arrogant and sterile research for abstract truths, while the social condition and the institutions of democracy prepare them to seek the immediate and useful practical results of the sciences. This tendency is natural and inevitable; it is curious to be acquainted with it, and it may be necessary to point it out.
If those who are called upon to guide the nations of our time clearly discerned from afar off these new tendencies, which will soon be irresistible, they would understand that, possessing education and freedom, men living in democratic ages cannot fail to improve the industrial part of science, and that henceforward all the efforts of the constituted authorities ought to be directed to support the highest branches of learning and to foster the nobler passion for science itself. In the present age the human mind must be coerced into theoretical studies; it runs of its own accord to practical applications; and, instead of perpetually referring it to the minute examination of secondary effects, it is well to divert it from them sometimes, in order to raise it up to the contemplation of primary causes.
Because the civilization of ancient Rome perished in consequence of the invasion of the Barbarians, we are perhaps too apt to think that civilization cannot perish in any other manner. If the light by which we are guided is ever extinguished, it will dwindle by degrees and expire of itself. By dint of close adherence to mere applications, principles would be lost sight of; and when the principles were wholly forgotten, the methods derived from them would be ill pursued. New methods could no longer be invented, and men would continue, without intelligence and without art, to apply scientific processes no longer understood.
When Europeans first arrived in China, three hundred years ago, they found that almost all the arts had reached a certain degree of perfection there, and they were surprised that a people which had attained this point should not have gone beyond it. At a later period they discovered traces of some higher branches of science that had been lost. The nation was absorbed in productive industry; the greater part of its scientific processes had been preserved, but science itself no longer existed there. This served to explain the strange immobility in which they found the minds of this people. The Chinese, in following the track of their forefathers, had forgotten the reasons by which the latter had been guided. They still used the formula without asking for its meaning; they retained the instrument, but they no longer possessed the art of altering or renewing it. The Chinese, then, had lost the power of change; for them improvement was impossible. They were compelled at all times and in all points to imitate their predecessors lest they should stray into utter darkness by deviating for an instant from the path already laid down for them. The source of human knowledge was all but dry; and though the stream still ran on, it could neither swell its waters nor alter its course.
Notwithstanding this, China had existed peaceably for centuries. The invaders who had conquered the country assumed the manners of the inhabitants, and order prevailed there. A sort of physical prosperity was everywhere discernible; revolutions were rare, and war was, so to speak, unknown.
It is then a fallacy to flatter ourselves with the reflection that the barbarians are still far from us; for if there are some nations that allow civilization to be torn from their grasp, there are others who themselves trample it underfoot.

311. Alexis de Tocqueville Was Right About the USA
The primary focus of Democracy in America is an analysis of why republican representative democracy has succeeded in the United States while failing in so many other places. Tocqueville seeks to apply the functional aspects of democracy in the United States to what he sees as the failings of democracy in his native France.
Tocqueville speculates on the future of democracy in the United States, discussing possible threats to democracy and possible dangers of democracy. These include his belief that democracy has a tendency to degenerate into "soft despotism" as well as the risk of developing a tyranny of the majority. He observes that the strong role religion played in the United States was due to its separation from the government, a separation all parties found agreeable. He contrasts this to France where there was what he perceived to be an unhealthy antagonism between democrats and the religious, which he relates to the connection between church and state.
Insightful analysis of political society was supplemented in the second volume by description of civil society as a sphere of private and civilian affairs. Tocqueville's views on the United States took a darker turn after 1840, however, as made evident in Aurelian Craiutu's Tocqueville on America after 1840: Letters and Other Writings.
'Democracy in America' was published in two volumes, the first in 1835 and the other in 1840. It was immediately popular in both Europe and the United States, while also having a profound impact on the French population. By the twentieth century, it had become a classic work of political science, social science, and history. It is a commonly assigned reading for undergraduates of American universities majoring in the political or social sciences, and part of the introductory political theory syllabus at Cambridge, Oxford, Princeton and other institutions. In the introduction to his translation of the book, Harvey C. Mansfield calls it "at once the best book ever written on democracy and the best book ever written on America.
Tocqueville's work is often acclaimed for making a number of astute predictions. He anticipates the potential acrimony over the abolition of slavery that would tear apart the United States and lead to the American Civil War as well as the eventual superpower rivalry between the United States and Russia, which exploded after World War II and spawned the Cold War.
Noting the rise of the industrial sector in the American economy, Tocqueville, some scholars have argued, also correctly predicted that an industrial aristocracy would rise from the ownership of labor. He warned that '...friends of democracy must keep an anxious eye peeled in this direction at all times', observing that the route of industry was the gate by which a newfound wealthy class might potentially dominate. (However, Tocqueville believed that an industrial aristocracy would differ from the formal aristocracy of the past.) What's more, he foresaw the alienation and isolation that many have come to experience in modern life.
On the other hand, Tocqueville proved shortsighted in noting that a democracy's equality of conditions stifles literary development. In spending several chapters lamenting the state of the arts in America he fails to envision the literary Renaissance that would shortly arrive in the form of such major writers as Edgar Allan Poe, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Walt Whitman. And in dismissing the country's interest in science as limited to pedestrian applications for streamlining the production of material goods he failed to imagine America's burgeoning appetite for pure scientific research and discovery.
According to Tocqueville, democracy had some unfavorable consequences: the tyranny of the majority over thought, a preoccupation with material goods, and isolated individuals. Democracy in America predicted the violence of party spirit and the judgment of the wise subordinated to the prejudices of the ignorant.
Apparently, the tyranny of the U.S. majority, the increasing number of billionaires, and the increasing generations of wealthy families could destroy the USA. Thus, capitalism and socialism must become functionally related. Real political scientists must take control of all governments.

310.A More Perfect Union Has a God Who is Active and Inactive
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Since Ben Franklin was ill and died on April 17, 1790, George Washington became the first President. And John Adam became his Vice President. I say that Ben Franklin and John Adams were the first big founders of the United States.
John Adams (click) became the second President and Thomas Jefferson became his Vice President. Then, Jefferson became the third President (click) and Aaron Burr became his Vice President. (click) (click) Burr was the first American who would try to destroy the more perfect union. To save the union, Alexander Hamilton died after he challenged a duel with Burr. (click)
James Madison, James Monroe, and John Q. Adams became the next three presidents. John C. Calhoun became vice President of John Q. Adams and Henry Clay became Secretary of State. (clay) Clay promoted the union by presenting the American System.(click) If Clay's system had been installed, our created universe would have no beginning and has no end.
However, John C. Calhoun also became Vice President of Andrew Jackson from 1829-1837. (click) It is with this 7th President that slavery is discussed. After eight more Presidents, Abe Lincoln uses the Declaration of Independence and the law, 'that all Men are created equal,' to stop slavery and the division of United States. To form a more perfect union, Lincoln developed Southern industries and Western homesteaders. But without the American System of Clay, our created universe had a beginning and has an end.
With a universe that has a beginning and end, the Republicans and Democrats have been working together nicely. But modern scientists, such as me, have found a new universe and a God that unites all opposites. Our new God is both active and inactive. This universe had no beginning and has no end. This is why the Republican and Democrats are no longer talking.

309. Declarations of Independence Can Make More Perfect Unions
In June 1775, Ben Franklin had outlined a plan of union. It was entitled 'Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.' But confederation did not come until Maryland ratified it on January 2, 1781. But the confederation of United States were struggling after 1781. Thus, to form a more perfect union, the Constitution was made in 1788. See-The Formation of the Union. With the Constitution, the Second Continental Congress was replaced by the U.S. government.
But forming a more perfect union is not possible. It is not possible because God is the only perfect thing. But a more perfect union can be developed if the concepts of 'time' and 'space' become real and become part of the union of any nation. Unfortunately, the U.S. Congress has never added programs of time and spaces to the United States.
Since the life of every human is continuous, governments must develop more perfect unions and must stop all free enterprise economies, which assume that humans have only one life or have developed a moral life and expect to receive a second life in Heaven with God.

308. Giving New Life to the Declaration of Independnce
As I said earlier, scientific laws form permanent causal relationships. On the other hand, government laws form human observations, which can become impermanent and will become false.
Below. I identify the scientific and government laws that were included in the DOI by the founders on July 4, 1776.
1. The one People exist and dissolve the political bands with England. This 'one People' is 'a whole with all of its parts.'
2. The one People exist and also assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them and declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.
3. The one People exist and also hold that some Truths are self-evident.
4. The one People exist and also hold that all Men are created equal.
5. The one People exist and are also endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among them are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
6. The one People exist and to secure these Rights, Government are instituted among Men, deriving their just Power from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.
7. The one People exist. So, prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are suffer able, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
In the 20th century, many U.S. people became atheists. This broad change caused many churches to close. This change has the potential to destroy the USA even though atheism can never be proven. Further,, these atheists are also rejecting Nature's God, even though I have proven God scientifically.
The U.S. atheists are also aligning themselves to England's theory of evolution, Newtonian Billiard Ball universe (click), and England's physical atoms.(click). Newton's universe and Locke's physical atoms were destroyed by Galileo, Kepler, and Leibniz. When Ben Franklin and the founders learned the work of Jesus, Galileo, and Leibniz, the American colonists separated the USA from England and opened John Locke's social contract theory.
If the DOI is not expanded socially and scientifically under God, the 'one People' of the USA will fall apart and become little nations. Thus, it is time to remove the Republican and Democratic parties from Congress.

307. Th Declaration of Independence Has No Life
The first two paragraphs of the DOI say:
When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the political Bands, which have connected them with another, and assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The remaining words in the DOI present facts.(click)
The DOI would be drafted by Thomas Jefferson ten years after Ben Franklin had been sent to Europe in 1766 and learned new and very different theories about God and the universe. These new theories had been developed first by Jesus, who studied a new theory of God and the universe in Greece. These new theories were developed later by Nicholas of Cusa, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Leibniz. These modern theories would challenge Newton billiard ball universe and England's physical atoms. So, the Stamp Act of England was only part of the concern of the American colonists.
In 1790, Franklin's autobiography tell us more about his trips to Europe saying that the divinity of Jesus can be doubted and that humans have immortal souls. In 1776, Franklin, and many founders of the DOI, new that deism, theism, and atheism must be rejected and that panentheism is defining the true God and an endless universe.
The people of the USA and their government have lost God. And knowledge of the universe is something unknown to them. Human life in the USA is terrible. The people must give the DOI a real life.

306.The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution Must Become One
Since the Constitution and government laws can be amended as time passes by 'Congress,' it seems clear to me that the DOI and scientific laws can also be amended as time passes by 'scientists.'
Many years have passed since the DOI was issued by the U.S. founders. However, ever since July 4, 1776, the DOI has never been amended. Yet many new scientific laws have developed. Based on an active God, who can't be known, Galileo found that God acts to make a universe, which has bodies that have an infinite number of parts. So, even though all humans die around 90 years, they are reborn because God gave them immortal souls. So, all humans are Little Gods, who live forever. Since humans will be reborn anywhere, all nations must become equal. Based on Galileo and other scientists, the DOI must be amended because many new scientific laws have developed and will cause amendments to the Constitution and government laws.
New DOI laws have never been developed. But government laws have grown for 237 years. So, the 'functional relations' between the DOI and the Constitution could never come together. This lack of togetherness in the USA explains today's problems between the Republicans and Democrats.

305. Scientific Laws vs. Government Laws
For instance, a scientific law in the DOI is a statement based on repeated experimental observations that describes some aspect of the world. (click) Scientific laws always applies under the same conditions, and implies that there is a causal relationship involving its elements. A central problem in the philosophy of science, going back to David Hume, is that of distinguishing causal relationships from principles that arise due to constant conjunction. Thus, the DOI cannot be amended by the U.S. government. But the DOI has scientific laws that are not considered by Congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court, when Government laws are being made.
However, a government law is different than scientific laws in that they do not posit a mechanism or explanation of phenomena: (click) Government laws are merely distillations of the results of repeated observation. As such, a government law is limited in applicability to circumstances resembling those already observed, and may be found to be false when extrapolated. Thus, the U.S. Constitution can be amended by the U.S. government.
Since the U.S. government can be shutdown again, another error must be eliminated.

304.The Republican Party Must Be Rejected
However, fairness did reappear in 1776 with the American colonists. Their fairness appeared in laws of the Declaration of Independence (DOI) and the Constitution. However, when the U.S. lawyers said that the DOI has no laws, the fairness of the U.S. citizens was eliminated and the U.S. wealth seekers reappeared. When they reappeared, many unequal humans and many unequal nations were made.
Occasionally, many fair presidents appear. In the USA, President Obama is trying to make all U.S. citizens and all nations equal. He is trying to develop two important equalities, the equality of health care and the equality of education. He is also trying tell nations to become equal. But many Republicans are wealth seekers. They want to make many different inequalities among American people and all nations. To gain these inequalities, Republicans will try to shutdown the U.S. government again in several months.
I believe that it is time for Americans to eliminate the Republican party..

303.The Current ShutDown of theU.S. Government Is Not Legal
John D. Rockefeller IV
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510-4802
Dear Senator Rockefeller:
In your March 26, 2008 letter to me you said, "While the Declaration of Independence is not considered law in the same sense that the Constitution is considered as law, ..... “ In this letter, I want to discuss your statement again about the Declaration of Independence and my new research on the Declaration of Independence (DOI). My new research tells us that our lawyers have made interpretation errors related to the founding documents. These errors have taken our nation off of the path of freedom sought by our founders. These errors are also moving the USA away from the paths of the colonist’s original experiment.
I say that the laws of the DOI and the Constitution function together must be treated equally as laws. If this does not occur, the U.S. private sector and U. S. public sector cannot be unified so that their natural harmony develops and works.
My new research is reported in my website at http://georgeshollenberger.blogspot.com/, The date of this report is 11/7/10. Its title is “The Private Sector of the USA Has Been Destroyed.” My research uses the book by John Locke on “The Second Treatise of Government.” My research shows that the U.S. ‘private sector’ of the USA was destroyed some time after President Abe Lincoln was assassinated. Below, I present the report on my research.
Information on the subjects of 'private sector' and 'public sector' can be found in a Google search. In the Google information, people try to define and distinguish these two sectors. However, the private and public sector of the USA were well defined and distinguished by our founders in the Declaration of Independence (DOI) and the Constitution. Below, I discuss the private and public sector as defined by our founders.
The private sector and public sector became a reality in 1776 when our colonists decided to separate themselves from England. The founders identified the private sector as the 'Society,' which had been identified by John Locke in his social contract theory. The Lockean Society was defined generally by the founders in the first two paragraphs of the DOI in 1776. Then, the founders identified the public sector as the 'Government,' which had also been identified by John Locke in his social contract theory. The initial 'Government' was the Second Continental Congress in 1776. The second Government became the Articles of Confederation and struggled, beginning in 1781. Then, to form a more perfect Union and strengthen the national government, the third Government was identified by the Constitution in 1778.
Locke's social contract is an agreement between Society and Government. This agreement was very clear in the minds of the founders and the colonists because the Lockean social contract was studied widely before 1776. Thus it is clear that the founders built a nation that would have a private sector, called Society, and a public sector, called Government. In this agreement, the People of public sector hold all rights, which are received from God. Since Government has no rights until it receives rights from the public sector, the Constitution and amendments define all rights that Government receives from the public sector.
The harmony between the private and public sector in the USA depends heavily on the continuous development by Congress the 'laws of nature and nature's God.' Those two different laws were included in the DOI. Since development of the USA would not occur immediately, the Bill of Rights were included in the Constitution in 1701.
The anti-federalists would warn against ‘development.’ To save the public sector and Locke's social contract, President Lincoln defended the DOI and the human right---all Men are created equal.
However, the public sector was eventually destroyed by today's lawyers. They say that the DOI was merely an authority to go to war against England. Essentially, these lawyers destroyed the first two paragraphs of the DOI. They also destroyed the Society and its social contract. However, by destroying the DOI, only Government remained in the USA. With only Government, the Congress changes from 'representatives of the public sector' to 'political parties with lobbyists.' Essentially, Government became a power over the people. So these lawyers transformed the USA into an oligarchy headed by rich classes. This transformation led to disharmonious work in Congress in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Today, lawyers, who reject God also reject the DOI, support the American Civil Liberty Union (ACLU). The ACLU impede the development of private sector land for educational purposes of our children. Further other lawyers in the Supreme Court help to destroy God when they supported Madelyn Murray O’Hair on removing prayers from public schools in 1967. Removing prayers anywhere will weakens the private sector because communications with God will develop the minds of our children properly.
The private sector was weakened by McCarthyism, which changed the TV/movie industry from, an educational organization for our children and good entertainment for the aging, to a huge and ugly national drug, sex, and crime culture. Furthermore, the poor ideologies of liberalism and conservationism are weakening the private sector. So are abortions, same sex marriages, and anti-socialists..
If Government is without a Society (or private sector), the USA is sitting on a see-saw that is swinging two ways. One has political power and the other has services. The power establishes nasty potentials with political divisions and wars. The service has many beauties for you.
This research shows that the USA was founded as a Society and a self-Government under God. The Society separated itself logically from the self- Government so that Society is identified as the ‘private sector’ and the self-Government is identified as the ‘public sector.’ I sent this research report to President Obama on 11/7/10.

302.Eliminate U.S. Govrnment Shutdowns
This new power of the U.S. Government developed quietly when some U.S. citizens stated that the Declaration of Independence (DOI) has no laws. This incorrect statement has eliminated the power of the States to abolish or change the U.S. Government. On Government, the DOI says, --- 'it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, ---'.
The States and the 'one People' must act immediately to stop all government shutdowns so that all people can go to work and save the USA.

301.The Republian Party Is Outdated
This Republican belief has its origin in the false theory of evolution. This theory says that all different families are 'one' and that they are linked with bloodlines. So, many Republicans must believe that success alone produces 'Old or New Money' and passes wealth onto all members of their families for endless generations.(click),(click),(click)
With my latest proofs of a panentheistic God and God's endless universe, the theory of evolution cannot exist. Thus, success and wealth are outdated human behaviors. Instead, the future of young people in all nations has become more important than the thoughts of the U.S. Republicans and the wealthy families.

300. Modifying Economy 101
After Economy 101 was put into action by the Republicans and Democrats, Economy 101 developed the following performance:
(1) developed a permanent level of inflation;
(2) developed a permanent level of unemployment;
(3) developed a growing debt;
(4) developed new commerce for alcohol and drug use after the 1920s;
(5) developed an increased number of criminals in the 1960s;
(6) did not develop any increased wealth for 90% of U.S. households, but did develop old money. [Old money is the inherited wealth of established upper-class families (i.e. gentry, patriciate) or a person, family, or lineage possessing inherited wealth. The term typically describes a class of the rich, who have been able to maintain their wealth across multiple generations.] (click) and
(7) reduced the rank of the U.S. mathematicians and scientists du to high cost of colleges and universities.
When President Obama came to the White House, the Democrats in Congress began to turn away from Economy 101. This turn separated the Republican and Democrats and eventually led to the shutdown of the U.S. government by the Republicans. The shutdown came because President Obama wanted to increase the debt and also wanted to decrease the costs of colleges and universities by increasing the taxes of rich citizens.
The debt in Economy 101 is a major error. Old Money comes from the evolutionary theory, which is false. (See 60 Families) So, the U.S. debt can be reduced greatly for all dead people. Further, inheritances can eliminated because bloodlines do not exist in any family. Furthermore, unemployment, must be limited to very low levels so that more children can go to colleges and universities. On inflation, all capital of new developments should come only from the Federal Reserve System. The banks should only fund developed goods and services. This modified Economy 101 must be changed immediately.
This modification of Economy 101 means that all government workers must be returned immediately.
Note. Economies can be known only by excellent scientists and excellent theologians. Since Congress does not have many dialectical scientists and theologians, the above modification of Economy 101 might not be understood by Congress.

299. Alternative Economies
Economy 101 is not a natural system that God made. Nor is Economic 101 like the economies that animals make. Thus, Economy 101 is a man-made system that does not work perfectly. So, Economy 101 has brought depressions. These depressions have been adjusted by the Keynesian economy with success by President Roosevelt and Clinton. Recently, the Keynesian economy was installed again with success by President Obama. Since Obama and the GOP are now in major debates on Economy 101, Economy 101 might change.
Alternatives to Economy 101 will be found in nations such as North Korea, Russia, etc. For example, in North Korea, the dictator makes the Korean economy. In Russia, the people make an economy that will develop all Russian minds over matter. And in the USA, political parties make the Economy 101, which develop varying levels of wealth for the people.
I conclude that only Russians will learn and understand God and the universe. Since more wealth in the USA will be found is a small number of people, science and mathematics can't be afforded by many Americans. So I conclude that the USA will become divided. But if Economy 101 changes, the people of the USA might follow the like of Russians.

208. Economy 101 of the GOP Must Be Junked
As the U.S. financial system stumbles, making headlines and creating distress in markets all over the world, economists are predicting an imminent recession. Or is that depression? How will it affect inflation? Many people find these economic terms below are confusing and interchangeable.
- adjustable rate mortgage
- bear market: an extended period of general price declines in the securities market
- bond: a long-term promissory note that obligates the borrower to make specified payments over a specific period of time. Bonds vary widely in maturity, security and type of issuer, although most are sold in $1,000 denominations.
- bull market: an extended period of general price increases in the securities market.
- business cycle
- capital gain: The excess by which proceeds from the sale of a capital asset exceeds the cost.
- Consumer Price Index (CPI): a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a fixed "market basket" of day-to-day expenses (including food, automobile registration, clothing, etc.)
- correction: reverse movement in the price of an individual stock, bond, commodity or index after any long-term move. Can be a movement up or down, but usually refers to a fall in the price.
- credit rating: A grading of a borrower's ability to meet financial obligations in a timely manner.
- default risk: Risk that a particular debtor will fail to make timely payments of interest and principal. Interest rates on a debt instrument rise as the default risk increases.
- federal funds rate: The rate of interest, determined by the Federal Reserve, on overnight loans of excess reserves among commercial banks. A declining federal fund rate may indicate the Federal Reserve has decided to stimulate the economy by making it cheaper for one bank to borrow from another.
- Federal Reserve
- hedge fund: A very specialized, volatile investment company (mutual fund) that permits the manager to use a variety of investment techniques normally prohibited in other types of funds. These techniques are borrowing money, selling short and utilizing options. These funds offer extraordinary gains with above-average risk.
- gross national product
- interest rate: A measure of the cost of credit, expressed as a percent.
- Keynesian economics: The economic philosophy espoused by John Maynard Keynes that advocated an active government role in maintaining the economy.
- misery index: an index that considers both inflation and unemployment rates.
- recession: an economic downturn marked by two consecutive quarters of declines in the gross national product.
- standard of living
- sub prime loans: Loans that are given to borrowers who have credit problems. Sub prime loans typically have higher interest rates than those given to borrowers with a clear credit history.
- supply and demand
- supply-side economics
Only the LaRouche dialectical economy will work under God in the USA. (click), (click) The minds of the GOP economists are unable to understand the economy of LaRouche.

297.Americans Need a New Federal Reserve System
But I see no trouble ahead for Russia's life of mind over matter, its Eastern Christianity, and its development of socialism. So, if commerce becomes the only life of Americans, I expect Russia and the USA to become separated soon.
A life of commerce, without socialism and without a panentheistic God, is neither systemic nor natural to God. Without socialism and a panentheistic God, debts, depressions, inflation, and unemployment can be expected during the life of most American. An American can only eliminate these commerce problems by becoming a wealthy person. But this commerce system is unfair. It is unfair because 90% of Americans will never be able to avoid these regular commerce problems. So, Janet Yellen will face the same old commerce challenges as the recent new Fed chair in the Federal Reserve System (FRS).
All forms of human life must be fair. Thus, the Federal Reserve System must become a fair system by terminating the FRS and developing socialism and the newest theories and practices of God. I believe that the FRS and the IRS should extend the 1963, 1983,1989, and 1992 study of the the wealth of the U.S. households.

296.Commerce and Our Greater Work
In the USA today, the Republicans are focused mostly on the work of commerce. But President Obama and the Democrats are focused on commerce and the greater work of our minds. While the work of commerce is very clear and can be valued with a money system, the greater work of our minds is infinite and cannot be valued with any money system or any scripture. So, the GOP and Democrats must come together, not to fight, but to discuss the greater work of our minds. Together, they must find a way to work commerce and our minds.
To solve the U.S. debt problem, inheritances must be eliminated because family bloodlines do not exist anywhere in the universe.

295. Making New Money Systems for the USA and Other Nations
Thus, all investments in the U.S. work can be zeroed out immediately by Congress because it has the authority to make a new U.S. Money system and regulate its Value. This new Money would become the capital for all U.S. work. And the old U.S. Money system would become useless as the Germany Money became useless after WWII. With the new Money system, the U.S. work day must be changed to a four-day weak so that all U.S. citizens are able to work.
Other new Money systems must be made in all nations because the true nature of God has been identified very clearly recently. Important examples of the new nature of God are: (1) God's creation and maintenance of the universe forever and (2) the continual life after deaths of all human forever. Thus, investments can no longer be used to build nations With the new God and His nature, all nations must become equal because inequalities will only lead to wars.
When the U.S. Republicans say that the U.S. debt and the U.S. government must be reduced, I concluded that they do not know very much about God, the universe, and human life. Equalities, like obamaCare, will grow forever.

294.Hoarding Capital Is Ungodly
As seen, debts should never exist in America. Even if American exchanges are necessary with other nations, debts are not necessary because bartering can be used.
Somehow, American debts came into existences. I say that debts came when some Americans hoarded capital and began to make investment in the work of America labor. An example is J.P. Morgan. (click), (click) After Morgan died, he was able to continue to invest his hoarded capital through his large family. The hoarding capitalists increased in number. With this increase, the 'one People' of America lost its 'socialism' and 'togetherness.' These hoarding capitalists and the Republican party became a single political force in the USA..

293.The U.S. Republicans Must Change
Based on the two systems above, the Republicans will always reject the following ideas:(1) the American System of economics, (2) the European and Russian socialism,(3) the U.S. Obama health care system, (4) the high U.S. debt. and (5) the growth of government. However, these ideas could be rejected by the Republicans in the past because Judaism, Christianity, and Islam teach that each human only has a second life, which is with God. This teaching is wrong because I have found that the life of all humans continue forever in the universe under God.
Thus, the American System of economics, the European and Russian socialism, the Obama health care system, the high U.S. debt. and the growth of government must be changed by Republicans. I say that the American System is necessary, socialism is necessary, and the Obama health care system is necessary. The high U.S. debt is a false theory and is no a political problem. But government must grow continuously because all U.S. citizens must bee cared for correctly. This means that infrastructures for all humans must become an instrument of capital.
So, the Republican party must change immediately.

292. The U.S. Government Does Not Know Itself
Tuesday, October 01, 2013
291.Criminals Exist In the U.S. Governmnet
Congress cannot abolish the Government, or any part of it, because the Declaration of Independence has five laws. These five laws define the private sector of the United States of American. The fifth law will be found in the second paragraph and says '... that whatever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these End, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, ...' The word 'People' must be interpreted scientifically as 'one People' because it is in the opening statement of the DOI. The phrase 'one People' means that only the United States can abolish the U.S. Government.
Today, the big question is, 'How did Congress get rights to abolish the U.S. Government and its parts?
