Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be
the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than
under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may
sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those
who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do
so with the approval of their own conscience.
If religion is a system of brainwashing and control then Scientology and Islam both qualify. And if religion is in fact a negation of Life and Liberty then why should it be protected under the Constitution?
Why don't we drop the pretense that Democrats, Progressives, or whatever they're calling themselves this week are anything other than the Manson Family with graduate degrees and paramilitary death squads in the place of LSD and old rusty knives?
The people who support The Big Zero and the would be successors Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are who Robert Heinlein wrote Starship Troopers.
These idiots* simply do not understand the nature of human life and function of government in protecting it. Not only that but they have been indoctrinated to believe that tyranny is right and freedom is wrong. Under no circumstance should any of them be allowed to exercise authority as a voting citizen.
Heinlein's proposed solution to the idiot problem is relatively easy to look

The course would be similar to a driver education course as presently
taught. The first part of the class covers The Constitution, the proper
functions of each branch of government, the function of each clause and
amendment, the duties of the citizen as the sovereign authority of the
nation, and what happened when the Federal Government was allowed to
enter the failure mode. The second part of the course covers the function and use of the
instrument of political authority, the personal weapon. This covers
rifle marksmanship and maintenance. Also covered is the basic
organization and tactics of the citizen militia unit. While the citizenship course will not be mandatory, completion and a
passing grade in it will be required to exercise the authority to vote.
* A word which is derived from the ancient Hellenic word for someone who does not participate in public life as a citizen of the political body.
