    Franklin’s despotism

    "In these sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other."sept 1787

    How far is it off??

    as true as it has always been, that every government falls into despotism and all the people who allow it deserve it.

    Governments are just like any other entity. They want to grow which can eventually only lead to oppression and then revolution.
