Mix religion with government and religion becomes a political weapon.
Mix science with government and science becomes a political weapon. It becomes "science," where lying with statistics and just flat out lying - in the name of science - is done to achieve a political outcome.
Mix medicine and healthcare with government and they both become political weapons. You get the political COVID debacle and a total disaster in care. You get bankrupt hospitals. You get the quarantining of healthy people. You get 40 million unemployed. You get a multiplication of problems that will reverberate through the years.
Mix education with government and education becomes a political weapon. The lack of education and indoctrination become tools to achieve political outcomes.
Mix media with government and you get fake news...all the time.
Mix money with government and you get a monopoly central bank named the Federal Reserve that counterfeits dollars and creates the boom/bust business cycle...that finances military Empire and bails out corporations with ties to government.
Mix business and government and you get corporatism, the system of the socialist/fascist Benito Mussolini.
Mix technology with government and you get a surveillance state dystopia.
Mix charity with government and you get a broken-down and bankrupt welfare state.
Do you see the pattern here?
Do you see the common thread?
America's Founders believed that government was a "necessary evil." They understood that it was toxic and a menace. As such, they tried to "chain it down" with a Constitution. They tried to limit its toxicity. The government's role was to protect liberty.
Once government mixes with anything...once it touches anything...it ruins it completely.
We'd be wise to once again consider the direction that America's Founders intended.
