none of those living in the colonies wanted direct rule, but they were willing to wait for devolved powers to be granted to them

2018-03-18 20:45:04 UTC  

the Canadians, Australians and kiwis got dominion status sometime in the 30s

2018-03-18 20:45:17 UTC  

they didn't use violence to try and take those powers

2018-03-18 20:45:48 UTC  

fair enough, the Americans did

2018-03-18 20:45:59 UTC  

i just don't think it was worth spilling the blood of their fellows over

2018-03-18 20:46:11 UTC  

at first it is quite mild

2018-03-18 20:46:23 UTC  

but all the time things suddenly got heated

2018-03-18 20:46:29 UTC  

like explosion

2018-03-18 20:46:42 UTC  

no one planned a revolution from the beginning

2018-03-18 20:46:52 UTC  

but in the end, it had to be like this

2018-03-18 20:47:07 UTC  

i'd agree with that

2018-03-18 20:47:21 UTC  

the countries under britain's control only remained there for so long as britain had the power to keep them

2018-03-18 20:47:40 UTC  

as soon as british power waned every colony was pushing for independence or more autonomy

2018-03-18 20:48:15 UTC  

it's the fault of the british government for losing the power and influence required to maintain the empire

2018-03-18 20:48:42 UTC  

and another thing

2018-03-18 20:49:00 UTC  

founding fathers may first identify as proud subjects of British crown

2018-03-18 20:49:15 UTC  

but then they realize that the British tradition is corrupted

2018-03-18 20:49:34 UTC  

so they decide to segregate from that

2018-03-18 20:50:26 UTC  

at least britain and america have remained allies

2018-03-21 00:28:49 UTC  

been listening to the history of rome, fascinating stuff

2018-03-21 00:33:23 UTC  

very frustrating to look our statesmen and politicians today, when compared to even the most mundane leaders from history, no will to truly lead

2018-03-21 00:34:03 UTC  

i think in america this problem stems from our decaying homogeneity

2018-03-21 00:35:08 UTC  

how can you even earnestly lead a country like america and appeal to "the people" when half of them will eventually never agree with the interests of the other

2018-03-21 00:38:14 UTC  

in recent months i have grown further and further anti democracy

2018-03-21 00:39:36 UTC  

i think the most reasonable return into a real republic is to set maybe wealth and military service requirements for voting and serving an office

2018-03-21 00:40:18 UTC  

this wont completely eliminate minority and women voting but will reduce it

2018-03-21 00:40:38 UTC  

a repeal of race/gender suffrage directly would never pass for along time

2018-03-21 00:47:09 UTC  

The feasible way to do that is to limit the franchise to taxpayers

2018-03-21 00:47:19 UTC  

If you don't pay taxes you don't vote

2018-03-21 00:47:44 UTC  

even that is too broad i think

2018-03-21 00:47:55 UTC  

are all republics democratic?

2018-03-21 00:47:55 UTC  

maybe certain tax brackets

2018-03-21 00:47:58 UTC  


2018-03-21 00:48:11 UTC  

democracy =/= republic

2018-03-21 00:48:30 UTC  

republics can have democratic tendencies

2018-03-21 00:48:38 UTC  

but are not truly democratic

2018-03-21 00:49:19 UTC  


2018-03-21 00:52:17 UTC  

i think the ideal republic would feature a senate:
consisted of members of the highest class
voted for by the highest class and upper middle class

A sort of tribune of the plebs made up by upper middle class, voted by upper middle class and representatives from the lower classes

2018-03-21 00:52:18 UTC  

Republic originally meant "a public matter" didn't it? There needs to be some type of democracy so that common people have some power in government

2018-03-21 00:52:42 UTC  

i think that version of the "tribune of the plebs" would have less power than they did in rome

2018-03-21 00:53:58 UTC  

this would limit democratic influence over most things yet still allow all citizens have some stake in the govt
