875. How the U.S. Democracy Was Started and How It Was Lost.
On March 18, 1766, the Stamp Act was repealed by the American colonists. Then, by June 14, 1766, Ben Franklin went to Germany and ready to learn new scientific and religious changes. From June 14 to August 13, Ben and Sir John Pringle (the Queen's physician), would meet many men of literary and scientific interests. On July 19, 1766, Ben and Pringle became a member of the Royal Society of Science at Gottingen, Germany.(click) From August 28 to October 8, Ben and Pringle also went to Paris and spoke to many French scientists. Om January 2, 1768 Ben became president of the American Philosophical Society. Then, on August 16, 1772, Ben went to Europe and was elected to the French Academy of Science. After Ben became a member of these two scientific academies, Ben learned the Monadology by Leibniz and Second Treatise of Government by Locke. Ben must have; also learned that China has the same God that European scientific academies have found. So, before Ben died, on 1790, in his Autobiography, Ben says that all human souls are immortal and that the divinity of Jesus must be doubted.
In 1775, from January to March, Ben went to England in order to solve the problems that the colonists developed. In England, the House of Lords rejected Ben's discussion. By March 1, 1775, Ben saw no solution. So, on March 22, Ben went home, landed on the fifth of May, and many actions occurred. On the 6th of May, Ben was made a delegate to the Second Continental Congress. And, on the 26th of July, Ben was also elected as the postmaster general of Congress. This meant that Ben has taken control of Congress. After Ben reviewed and made changes to the Declaration of Independence (DOI), on July 4,1776 the colonists would sign the DOI and the USA become a new nation. Until President George Washington became president on 1789, Benjamin Franklin was in full power of the USA. Ben died on April 17, 1790.
The development of the USA began. One example is the development of German knowledge of coal. Since Ben did make a new stove, coal mining in the USA was used before Ben died. In 1832, Henry Clay proposed the American System.' And, Abraham Lincoln destroyed slavery and built the South and the West. But, Lincoln was assassinated. This is when Ben's democracy of Leibniz and Locke are lost. So, beginning in 1865 the new European sciences and religions of the 18th century is lost. In 1865, alcohol develops. And, then, drug abuses develop. These developments cannot be maintained.
Now, the U.S. Americans should know that their minds and knowledge are in deep trouble.
