On this Cyber Monday, I am more than well-versed in the tools I need to get the most out of my consumer experience. If I haven’t secured a deal in advance from groupon.com, I check upromise.com and ebates.com to see which will maximize a rebate from my online retailer. And I never buy before searching retailmenot.com for a promotional code.
I was an AP History student in high school, I took a course in college called Resistance and Protest in the American Dream, I have been educated in power dynamics and the authority of self. Yet still, I remain ignorant of the basics.
As an American citizen, what documents and agreements govern me? How can I learn to optimize my family’s liberty by my practical and political actions?
To the primary sources! I think I’ll start here: http://www.archives.gov/
The learning curve to come feels overwhelming. I trust though that my eventual return will be far greater than the 2% walmart.com is offering.
