    The benefit of the Constitution is to protect the citizenry from the misuse of power. Throughout history, the world has never had a system to protect the individual from power hungry individuals or groups of individuals. The Roman republic survived about five hundred years, but eventually fell and yielded to dictators and emperors. Today, we, (in Britain and America) carry forth the ideals of democracy as set forth around 500BC by Greek philosophers such as Socrates, Aristotle, Cicero and others. The Constitution, as the framers designed it, is based on the mistakes of history and the foibles of human nature.

    No wonder the Left, which is after power, (for whatever reason,) wants to implement Marxist, policies and replace the Constitution, by appealing to the gullible youth, the apathetic and the clueless.

    Is it hard to believe that the Mellenials subscribe to Marxism?

      The United States' Constitution is designed to give We The People, the Governed according to the Declaration of Independence, CONTROL over the Governors. That is why the Preamble eliminates any from of "Society Establish" divisions of any kind, Article 6 made the Governors "Public Trustees" and Amendment 10 gave the Governed power over the State Governments if they chose to follow the Central Government in DC.

      The problem is as far as I can remember the lie that "We The people can't fight City Hall" and win has been taught everywhere. Since the Governors knew they basically controlled the thinking of the people be cause our minds were conditioned at a very young age to believe anyone in authority We The Governed People have never sought to challenge the Governors.

        The last challenge to the US Government was over 3℅ tax on tea. If the Government threatens to shutdown today, that is a win for the people.

          Alexander Hamilton asked:
          "Why has Government been instituted at all?  Because the passions of men, will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without restraint."
          The same argument, he said, applies to human beings when they act together AS A GOVERNMENT. They need constraint and the Constitution provides it.

        - well, actually In 1997, Tomas Sowell wrote: "One of the small but hopeful changes that will come with the New Year is a California law requiring high schools to include The Federalist Papers among their assigned readings. This is long over due, but those "educators" who would rather be glorifying foreign cultures or handing out condoms have already mounted resistance to teaching about the basic structure of the American Government."
        One of the claims is that the federal papers is too hard to read." He goes on to show what an absurd claim this is.  Daily News, Friday, 1997.

        But yeah, never happened.

    Millennium I discuss with, except capitalism mixed with Socialism, yet reach to greater advancements with individualism and it's what they have taught me. They are a smarter generation than us boomers, who have dropped the ball.

    The beauty of individualism is it can cherry pick with your imagination the best ideas from the most extreme systems of Communism, biblical and Corperationism. Then incorporate it into your own world/Universe, that keeps expanding wail dropping most of the BS attached to them.
    Millennials Love Choice, Marxism Rejects It. It would discourages individual creativity both social and economic aspects of life. They loves innovation and choice. Millennials would not be willing to sacrifice their real-world lifestyles for the utopian promises of Marxism. Freedom to choose is inherent in a free market economy, and amazing solutions to life millions out of poverty. Greater choice is a boon to the world.

    Marx's utopia, limits the options available to the individual, means less choice. Both Corperationism and Marxist empires believed that violence was one of the primary means to defend their order, a lience to steal and kill and greater than the public dose.  These two systems inspire the violent radicalization of Soviet dictators, and US Corp military offensive worldwide terrorism today.

    The freedom to choose is inherent to a successful modern free market economy. Places like Venezuela and North Korea prove that the Marxist doctrine eventually leads to terror also. We cannot afford to experiment with an ideology of hate and slavery.

    Governments today have to be more responsible to people, due to greatly open public criticism and the possibility of revolt against an authoritarian state both Corperationism and Communism. It's vital and crucial to challenge and maintain ethics from unchallenged authority.Millennials, many of whom bridle against authority and are very keen on voicing criticism and their opinions in general. As Marxism Is the Gateway to Communism. Marxism ultimately results in system of universal slavery, absolutely intolerable to a generation accustomed to the app economy and everything-on-demands. For Marxism had dominated the world, humanity would have been robbed of many achievements, living through the dark days of communism would be unthinkable. Tear down this Wall ended much of Communism in Eastern Europe in 1989.

    Today it's Corperationism wider world spread. Nowadays, greatest criticizism is the state and Corperationism are in bed together. This not fundamental right for individual in most countries. It is highly unlikely that millennials would support a reversal of history at its worst.

    Millennials need more liberty from the American Constitution rather than little choice from Marxism. Therefore, we are better off appreciating the ideas from the Constitution, if not so many Americans were such great hippocrites of it.

      You use that word (Corperationism) a lot, always in the negative; can you define what it means to you? 

      Is it any time 2 or more people combine forces to provide a business or service?  Any time a business grows larger than you think a business should be?  Any business large enough to hire employees?  Any business signing legal incorporation papers according to US law?

        I will describe possibly the largest single lie of modern-day Societal Programming. This lie is so successful, billion people believe in it. This lie began 1866 with Lincoln war emergency act to US Corp. Then boomed in the 90s til, Today, it’s simply accepted “wisdom” and not even questioned. The lie is not a complete Western culture but world culture, until a war breaks the abuse.

        The Corperationism lie disguise as Capitalism meaning big government assisting big banks and corporations in ripping off their customers, then bailing out said banks and corporations when they fail.“They blamed 2008 crash on screaming
        Capitalism nonsense, we need to have free markets. It's was too much the 1℅ greedy, and too less of wealth for the lower 90℅. The problem is corporatism, not capitalism, which is completely different.

        The US isn’t a capitalist country since 1913 where gold was taken from privately own banks. Something horrible happens to the US economy, you can’t blame capitalism, it's Corporatism thief private banks.
        Who bashing corporatism? Me. How many people do you see bashing capitalism? Too many, which is programed unsolvable brain damage. If they call it corporatism “crony capitalism, it's still a lie,

        Capitalism Means free market capitalism, is based on a (mostly or completely) unregulated free market, voluntarily exchange, entrepreneurship (including the risk that implies) and private property.
        In capitalism, you can start your own business and the government has nothing to do with it. You can run that business any way you like. The government doesn’t tell you how to operate the business as the Government do today, in which is a corporation killing competition and mostly smaller business competition like me who can sell a house manys times cheaper and healthier. The Corporate grid better get rid of me, so they can continue to own everyone.

        Capitalism is where government don't tell you how to operate the business, how to service your customers, how to manage your money, how much to charge for your products or services, how much to pay your employees, or anything else. You can run that business literally any way you want as long as you don’t murder anyone or steal anyone’s stuff (including things like patents).

        Does that sound like the United States or America?

        If your run your business well, you make a lot of money and keep the vast majority of it, since under capitalism, taxes are really low. Tiny government equals super low taxe.  Why Should the Government make more money from me than I do, in profits. That's is a system of theft and a Corperationism Government.

        The government also doesn’t pass any laws that make it more advantageous for people to do business with you. It also doesn’t arrange its tax code so that purchasing your product or service is more advantageous to, or detrimental to, people’s tax positions. If you’re a bank, the government doesn’t provide programs where people can get lower-interest loans from you. If you’re a home builder, the government doesn’t provide people extra tax write-offs to buy one of your houses. Once again, government stays the hell out of these things, and it’s completely up to you as the business owner to sell a quality product or service, or not.

        Does that sound like the United States or American?

        Under capitalism,  government gets involved in your business, if you’re caught defrauding your customers. If you lie to a lot of your customers about a product or service, then, the government can steps in. Maybe or throw your ass in jail or force you to sell it to someone more honest. The government does not allow you to defraud your customers on a mass scale.  Like the greatest killers of people through Corperationism fast food killing weapons and worst Centro banks. Do you see a lot of corporate CEOs or bankers go to jail for defrauding their customers? No, more rewarding them than anything.

        Under capitalism, you go out of business and lose all of your money.  Doesn’t matter, If the people running that large corporation and screw it up, Too many corporation do not go under. Rather often affiliated with the government come in and save you. If Rarely you go under, like Trump. Who gets Rockefeller or Rothschilds banker to bail you out. Or go under another number Corperation of no responsibility.

    Ronald Reagan stated:  "Individual liberty depends on keeping the government under control."

    He also mentioned, "Man is not free, unless government is limited."

    He advised:
    "It is rather to make government work with us,
    not over us,
    to stand by our side,
    not ride our back.

    "Government can and must
    provide opportunity,
    not smother it;
    foster productivity,
    not stifle it."

    And he reminded us: "We have long since discovered that nothing lasts longer than a temporary government program."
       
    cool

    I concur with you here, Castlepaloma: (slightly edited)

    "... Marxism Is the Gateway to Communism. Marxism ultimately results in system of universal slavery, absolutely intolerable to a generation accustomed to the app economy and everything-on-demands. If Marxism had dominated the world, humanity would have been robbed of many achievements. Living through dark days of communism is unthinkable."CP

    I hope the Mellenials do (concur) too.
