Middle class beware,
The union is out to get you.
There can’t be
A bourgeois society
If the elites don’t need you.
In an authoritarian state,
It’s too hard to differentiate,
Between all the nationalist drones.
You’re either in the in-group,
And since you’re not, you’re out.
Religion can’t save you,
And academics aren’t allowed,
Because syndicates hate media.
Democracy is just too difficult,
Fascism is so much easier.

Commentary: The First Amendment is the chief corner-stone to the Constitution, which upholds our democracy. Don’t be deceived into believing, you don’t need the First Amendment. If you willingly surrender your rights, what makes you think, the government can be trusted—to not trick you—into giving up your Second Amendment, also. Even if you resist, it will be too late, because you’ve already forfeited your First Amendment—Freedom of Speech and Assembly protections. The forfeiture of our First Amendment, whether by coercion, deceit or choice is the greatest threat to our democracy! “When you take care of your first priority, everything else will be okay” or “When you do first things—first, everything else will fall in place. However, if you do second things—first, everything else will fall apart”. Our Founders were cognizant of how subtle, government tyranny can be. We owe them a debt of gratitude, for amending the Constitution with the Bill of Rights!
In conclusion, the Second Amendment only serves as a guarantee that our First Amendment protections are defended. But don’t be deceived, when the Second Amendment was enacted, it was to serve as a deterrent against government tyranny. Back in December 1791, it was probably feasible for a militia of colonists with muskets to subvert the standing army. Currently, in August 2020, a militia of armed citizens would never be able to overthrow the government, because the armed forces possess weapons of mass destruction. So basically, if our First Amendment falls, our Second Amendment Proponents won’t be able to defend themselves and as a consequence whomever orchestrates a military coup will eventually rule over the survivors.
