Ever since its conception the United States has experienced continuous revolutionary periods. Facilitated by the First Amendment to the Constitution, our founding fathers realized that's the country would always be receptive to revolutionary ideas.
It started with the Agrarian Revolution, when the United States tripled in size due to the Louisianna Purchase in 1803 and the Mexican--American War in 1848. Then the United States entered the Industrial Revolution and the country became an industrialized nation. At the start of the Industrial Revolution in 1850, 90% of our citizens lived on farms. By the end of the Industrial Revolution, 1900, 90% of our citizens lived in towns or cities. The Industrial Revolution was followed by the Social Welfare Revolution which empowered these citizens with a layer of social programs to embellish their urban lifestyles. Next came the Technological Revolution that changed the United States from a manufacturing nation into a high-tech colossus. During the Technological Revolution, the United States sent many of its low paying factory jobs to undeveloped countries and developed higher paying high-tech jobs. The Technological Revolution pushed the United States into the Information Revolution. The Information Revolution not only revolutionized how the United States obtained information but also changed how the other countries of the world obtained their information. As a result of the Information Revolution, even undeveloped countries have access to all the information in the world via the internet.
Today, the world is overwhelmed with political and military conflicts around the world. The United States needs to lead the nations of the world into amending the United Nations charter. The present charter of the United Nations is ineffectual. By amending the charter of the United Nations, a revolutionary Federation of Nations would established. The Federation would be empowered to limit population growth and reduce the amount of green house gases that are being emitted into the atmosphere. Once the Federation is established, the world will become much more stable politically and environmentally.
