Education is the silver bullet.
If you want a smaller government and a better America, eliminate every federal agency except a lavishly funded Department of Education. Well educated citizens will figure out and organize the rest on their own. Don’t bother redistributing wealth; redistribute knowledge instead, making sure every person has solid gold education guaranteed.
Buckminster Fuller said that one person in 100,000 will create something that will pay for the other 99,999… but you won’t be able to predict who that 1 will be. So you must educate all 100,000 equally.
The answers are at hand.
