And what they were trying to do has never been done before.
They knew of the problems, they tried to do something about them. They are not perfect.
No human is perfect.
But damn, they came close with the constitution.
Oh by the way... the founding fathers set it up in a way that the citizens DO have the right to revolt against their government if they see fit.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants."
Tyrants as government and Patriots as the citizens.
Of course we must be reserved in our judgment of when to and when not to revolt
Else we have anarchism essentially
That is true too.
But most people been trying to state the citizens do not have the right to revolt.
I am like... that is bullshit, they do have the right to dispose of tyrants and dictators if they see fit.
I feel like the most concerning development in the recent history is that Americans seem to be forgetting that our rights are inherent
guys they weren't kidding
Many of us believe that we can only have our rights as graced by the government, not that they are inherent and should be protected by government
I agree with you on that.
CLEAVE UNTO YHWH
Expel the Saracen from Jerusalem AND Constantinople
If you are going to take Konstantinopolis might as well go for Antioch too while you are at it.
If we’re going to take Antioch we might as well restore the Eastern Roman Empire
Egypt has a 30% Coptic Orthodox population in need of liberating too.
Alexandria, it has been awhile.
Last time I heard the Coptic population was 10%
Unless the source I heard that from was lying to me which could very well be possible
Might be right, my statistics could be old
I imagine migration for them has been fierce

Actually I think I got the source from the Egyptian government census
Which is definitely questionable
Wikipedia puts Egypts population around 100 million, and there are roughly 15 to 20 million christians in Egypt, mostly Coptic.
Although apparently there are no religious census in Egypt
Which is about like 15-20%
I kind of always find countries that decide to not list their ethnicities statistics very questionable; like why would you not?
Old study though, 2012
