Money and items, of a total value of 210$, will be given to the first person who can prove that the “United States of America” exists as a legitimate entity.
PLEASE NOTE that you do not have to prove that government does not exist. That is not what the Challenge is about. For the sake of the Challenge, you may assume that the government exists (but not that it is legitimate).
I define legitimate as the following statement from the Declaration of Independence:
“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”
A legitimate entity of governance, therefore, must derive its powers from the consent of the governed.
Please post your submissions on this thread (guests can post). I may post interesting answers on this blog.
