Down with the Presidency!

The modern institution of the presidency is the primary political evil Americans face, and the cause of nearly all our woes. It squanders the national wealth and starts unjust wars against foreign peoples that have never done us any harm. It wrecks our families, tramples on our rights, invades our communities, and spies on our bank accounts. It skews the culture toward decadence and trash. It tells lie after lie. Teachers used to tell school kids that anyone can be president. This is like saying anyone can go to Hell. It's not an inspiration; it's a threat.

Politically speaking

I don't mind a high office of individual leadership, so long as the position is
1) volitionally electoral
2) the institution's derived laws are ethically based upon indiviual rights without anti-voluntary coercion

my pipedream/daydream

we're all like schooling fish or flocking birds

each individual using their internal compass to head in the right direction

sometimes it looks like there's a leader, but that's more an outsider's perception than anything else

sometimes an individual's internals get messed up, and that one will head off who knows where

but it will not be followed, because each bird/fish knows the right course all on their own

so in my case I don't mind the Appearance (from outside perception) of a leader, but it doesn't mean they're actually being followed... if the "leader" disappeared, nobody would notice much... they'd just keep on doing the right thing all on their own as they always have...
