In today’s United States, we are experiencing a revolution of “owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law”[7]. Those days are over. Tough love is the only love, if any at all. We need not get to the top by being soft.

With great power comes great responsibility. The new government of the United States will be structured just as it is now, but will be debugged. A problem that we have today is that laws are fluid. They can be interpreted in many ways. The new laws will be rigid. “To no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay right or justice”[8]. Although the laws are set in stone, this does not mean they are not fair. They are there for the safety of the people and the overall betterment of the country.

Since this is a highly educated society, the citizens are able to play an even greater role in the legal system. “No bailiff shall in future put anyone to trial upon his own bare word, without reliable witnesses produced for this purpose”[9]. Through greater understanding, error in accusations will be cut to a minimum. We will keep the bad people off the streets and the good people on them.

As an aggressive purebred, the United States is seen as a bully. Which is not what we are, but it begs, “the question whether it is better to be loved rather than feared, or feared rather than loved. It might perhaps be answered that we should wish to be both; but since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved”[10]. If the world wants to fear us, so be it. Since the United States is at the top, everyone will try to tear it down. But if we are feared, no one will even dare try.

Also, by combining our education and our power, we can become the ultimate civilization. As a purebred, we are a beast. The United States, “should know how to use the beast's nature wisely, he ought of beasts to choose both the lion and the fox; for the lion cannot guard himself from the toils, nor the fox from wolves. He must therefore be a fox to discern toils, and a lion to drive off wolves”[11]. Harnessing both our strengths will allow us to excel and keep pushing forward.

All in all, to be the best, you have to think and act like the best. The future of the United States is to grow up and take on its role as the most powerful country in the world. Our days as a puppy are over and we are pulling on our chain.
