Want to cancel the NSA? The NDAA? Want your state, or your local government, to get the best of the federal government? Want localities everywhere in the world to cancel the centralizing forces that continue to to straightjacket humanity into a “new world order” that benefits the 1%, impoverishes or destroys the 99%, and ruins Earth’s biosphere? Corbett discusses the history and value of a little known, barely remembered tool, that of “nullification,” a “long repressed piece of political history that offers us a way out.”
Introduced by Thomas Jefferson, who realized that all three branches of the federal government can be in the bag of a single dominating political force, Jefferson looked to “nullification” by the states as the final arbiter of the people’s will. Nullification as the tool to cancel federal overreach, the legal/ethical sword we can wield to slice off the heads of the hydra. YES!
It only appears that power flows down from above. That’s faux power, and only viable if we continue to allow it. Real power flows from the bottom up. That’s us, folks.
