Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #1

Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #1

The US Constitution has recently been summarized as “four boxes and one constraint.” What are these four boxes and this one constraint?

My two cents, but please share yours:

The US Constitution documents the social and economic freedoms of each individual.

Social Freedoms:  (Left-Wing Rights)

BOX 1:  Each individual has the inalienable right to own themselves.

BOX 2:  Each individual has the inalienable right to control themselves.

Economic Freedoms:  (Right-Wing Rights)

BOX 3:  Each individual has the inalienable right to own their necessities of life.

BOX 4: Each individual has the inalienable right to control their necessities of life.

CONSTRAINT 1:  Each individual must never interfere with or take away another individual’s inalienable rights to own and control themselves and their necessities of life.

Note 1:

  1. Own  =  Buy, sell, hold
  2. Control  =  Coerce or force by using rules. regulations, laws, taxes, censorship, political correctness, physical force, etc.
  3. Necessities of life  =  Earned food, water, shelter, etc.  =  the fruits of the individual’s labors  =  their property

Note 2:

Per the 2D political definitions model, Liberals, Libertarians (high-freedom folks), Centrists, and Conservatives all favor the US Constitution and will therefore check off all four of the boxes and the constraint. Totalitarians, who do not favor the US Constitution, will not check off either the boxes or the constraint.
