It doesn't mean anything because it doesn't address anything real. It's idealism. If anything represents a substantial risk to the ability of the people to constrain and control government, it is the people themselves.It doesn't matter if it's a tool the government likes or not. It's not the point. The People are in charge, not the government. The government can like something all it wants; but if it does disservice to the People, particularly in our ability to constrain and control the government, then it is wrong. The sins of the past do not excuse the sins of the present. Try to understand what that means in its entirety.

That's your assumption. It's probably easiest for you to take that route than to try to combat the points made or consider that those might be my rational and well thought out opinions. I think that maybe the problem lies not with my disgust of FDR but maybe on your side because you can't seem to think that such disgust could come rationally and being unable to deal with it you'd rather make assumptions about my character to provide yourself an easy dismiss of my arguments. So be it. Your choice. I don't care what you believe, I provided sources you may investigate them if you wish. Otherwise, do whatever you want. If you must assume incorrect things then that's your problem. If you can't be honest or engage in debate and must invent deflections, that's your problem. I don't care. Anyone can look up sources, read the book or the other sources listed there themselves.
... nice attempt at reversal, but I haven't forwarded an opinion about FDR, so you have no grounds for that opinion.But in the end, it appears more to me that you took offense to someone having such an opinion about FDR and now your grappling to come up with some way to explain such opinion and in doing so have made assumptions which are wrong, but you like because it fits into your preconceived notions. Again, those are your problems.

Again, building on preconceived notions here. The thought that the government knows best and we should accept it as people in general are unable to constrain and control the government is rather absurd. The People are the source of all power for a government and hence are the true sovereigns. Thus it is for the people and by the people that the government must govern by. Again, sins of the past do not excuse the sins of the present.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
