A Question that is Dividing America
Federalism or Anti-Federalism
Which One Do You Believe In
When the United States of America was established, the question dividing the founding fathers was rather the country would be organized around a federal presence holding significant power to regulate the relationships between the states and the union as a whole with the world in general; or would the country continue to be a disunited confederacy with sparing interstate competitors with diverse interests and goals, goals often rendering unity difficult if not impossible. After the federal government was established via the constitution, the argument didn’t go away; the argument simply shifted tones. No longer did Anti-federalists, who lost the debate, question rather the federal government should exist, they started concerning themselves with the “power” held by the federal government, thus asserting constant victimization of their states by the federal government. While not immediately seen during the “founding generation”, after that generations influence waned and its prominent members were buried, this screed became a rallying cry amongst many Southerners whenever the federal government would take an action they didn’t like. Now I could continue recounting this history, but the point I am making in this podcast segment is rather simple – this divide is not new. After the Reconstruction era when the Industrial Revolution of the North came to the Southern states, the argument against the federal governments regulation powers became a central theme in discussions centered around the federal governments ability to interject itself into the Jim Crow south. States’ rights, a euphemism for unregulated Apartheid, became – to some segregationists, synonymous with unregulated corporate power. It is from this history that I draw my influence for this episode segment from.

Economic Reckoning on the Horizon
It's Time We, the People, Have an Intervention in the Lives of the Economically Obese
The role of an intervention is layered. At the outset, those engaging in the intervention, the interventionists (if we could call them that), want to confront a person who is both causing pain to themselves and to other people. Depending how far the dependency has advanced, the first order may be to force them into rehab; the second order may be to confront them over the cost their addiction is extracting from their family and friends; the third order may be to love bomb them in a way that separates them (briefly) from the inhabiting fogginess feeding the addiction, resulting in a temporary grounding effect for their personality; and, if the addiction isn’t that severe but beginning to present itself as a problem or maybe the addiction is so severe the person cannot live without having the quenching substance on, near or within reach of their body for any moment throughout the day; the fifth order may be to physically confiscate the addictive substance from the person and areas they frequent. We have entered a period in time when most people are starting to believe, our society needs to “do something” about the blatantly destructive income and wealth inequality which has destabilized this country and deteriorated its (institutional, communal, cultural and familial) infrastructure; what that “something” is, remains a topic for discussion. No matter the conclusion reached by these discussions, though, I believe the result will be the same, an intervention pitting the society against those I have dubbed the economically obese. In todays episode I look at the need for an intervention to stop them from destroying the society.
