Independence from coercion can only be secured through solidarity, and individualism only through mutual cooperation. Thus the US Founders swore an oath in 1776:
“…we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
It is not enough to call ourselves the 99%. To preserve our liberties from those who constantly endeavor to “divide and rule“, each generation must make good that pledge. Nothing else, and nothing less, will work.
