I read no further than this first sentence, for the reason that I refuse to give any serious attention to an argument which gives control of the "goal of the United States" to the imperialists who are trying to rob us of our democracy. It is NOT theirs. We shed our blood to found our United
States and to protect it, and I will, for one, not surrender one comma or letter of the Declaration of Independence. The central goal of the United States is not the goal of the fascist capitalists with whom we are engaged in a monumental struggle for the state power and a future of freedom from exploitation. Get your thinking straight and the terminology exact, then I'll read your essay.
