Obviously, you don't have a clear comprehension of how our system works.
Most Europeans I've met are highly cynical and skeptical of their governments. We most certainly can use a healthy dose of that here.
That's a strange development, if it is indeed the case that there is greater cynicism and skepticism in Europe than America then early welfare statist views that paternalism would increase legitimacy have been ill conceived.
This is a good point and close to what I was trying to discuss.
Although I cant help but believe that great defenders of freedom and free speech hadnt in mind what it has become and how it has been used and abused since. Is it not somehow wrong that this happens?

Personal conduct has a long tradition, and off the top of my head...
There were about 225 rules regarding civility and personal conduct passed down through hundreds of years...of European society. The founders would have been well aware of them, as is George Washington. His list is shorter, but based upon the tradition of the gentry.
