Besides flags and statues, which are small potatoes in the Big Picture of Life - Think of the Liberties
That are History in the US and around the planet -
This is just a few as the list goes on and on....
Control of your body- meaning rules on what you can ingest voluntarily and what type of treatment you can get for your aches and pains as well as where you can work and for what compensation.
What you can do with your fruits of your labor and your property! Think taxes, rules on money and employment and Rules on how and what to do with your home and business .
Rules on travel .... Where you can go with your rulers permission and what you can take with you or ingest even without harming others .
Rules and punishment for raising and schooling your children against other people's ( the governments) values .
Ability to express yourself and your values - so called Hate speech.
If the Government wants you to fight in a war- and get killed and maimed -against your will- that's your tough luck ! They call Slavery the "draft" .
We are forced to buy Health insurance , lol - just in case we might need to go to the doctor "someday".
What is left for Individuals to choose anymore-
The color of your toothbrush😝
