At the time of the Revolution in America there was an obvious power that was measurably evil and the words used to label that power were many.
Taxation without Representation
The Dogs of War
The concept of choosing to disconnect from that accurately measurable EVIL power was expressed in many ways during those days.
The Declaration of Independence
The Articles of Confederation combined with State Constitutions
Trial by Jury
Bills of Rights
The fact that evil people insist upon connecting to the victims they target remains to be a fact right now.
So the question asked again, by the victims, is embodied in individual minds, and those individuals, when added together, make up a POWER that is much greater than the total sum of each individual POWER to question that Evil POWER.
It may be useful, you can decide, to know, understand, and accurately measure, a reasonable solution that worked well enough to drive out The Dogs of War visiting America from Britain, as the targets in America were having their productive POWER stolen by The British and used to finance further destruction including those Dogs of that Aggressive War for British Royalty Profits; and the Central Bank of that day.
The reasonable solution was neither Evil A, nor Evil B.
The reasonable, working, solution was a Democratic Federated Republic.
Those who prefer Evil were able to vote with their feet to places where Evil was subsidized, and those people, in those days, were called Loyalists, or Tories.
Here is a relevant quote:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
In those days, those who wanted nothing to do with Evil A, The British, had in mind a solution called Liberty, which was gained with a tool, and the tool was called a Democratic Federated Republic, and it worked well enough to help drive out the Evil that invaded, and occupied America at the time.
It worked well enough to defend against the largest army of aggression on the planet Earth as that criminal army invaded, occupied, and subjugated the target population into Evil Rule by Evil, Inhuman, beings.
The Loyalists, and the Tories either allowed Evil to exist, or were willfully working to make Evil more powerful.
A useful quote:
"Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." Tom Paine 1776
As it turned out, in accurately measurable fact, government need not be Evil at all, and a Democratic Federated Republic was a tool used to work Evil OUT of the "Colonies", when the targets of Evil employed that tool, which they did, and so the example is provided for all to see, if you care to look.
