What might America be like if universal suffrage for white dudes had never came to be in the 1820's? Up to then you had to OWN property to vote. Giving those with no skin in the game the right to vote...

From where did the notion of property rights derive?

A real luddite might look fondly upon those past times...

Well...maybe we're Luddites, maybe not. I don't know. But what I do know is that my kids won't starve over the next several years; inflation affects me a lot less because I fix stuff myself and only need to source the raw mats (it also builds fellowship with like minds!); my community is more hardened now than most because I chose to get off my ass and do something about it; and I get to decide who eats off my orchard and who doesn't.

I may be a Luddite, but that's liberty and security in a world where voting will soon matter not. Someone who needs something from me is going to find out that tucking their balls between their legs and squealing like Jame Gumb in Silence of the Lambs will earn them nothing but an expeditious escort off my lawn.
