so help me out here: someone please help me to understand why there are people in the world's leading nation - the one that all others look up to - who would blatantly disregard the principles on which the U.S. Constitution is founded.

Because the deadbeat masses altered the Constitution so they could vote for mediocre scammers who will take care of them. It's the same all over, which is why those other nations that supposedly "look up to" the US Constitution would never think of adopting it

there is the older valid causes against the maltreatment of women and the removal of their rights

The oldest cause feminists were concerned with in America was banning alcohol, and once that was accomplished they began advocating for adoption of the USSR's political system. A mystery what any of this had to do with women, other than their right to be crazy bitches.

there are some advantages to government backed [inflationary] currencies with strong banking regulations & government backed insurance on individual accounts.

That kind of insurance, guaranteeing that you will get at least a fraction of your money back when convenient for the bank, could be replicated for Bitcoin, but it would only be of value to lunatics

Most girls come to associate pink with their gender at an early age, yet 100 years it was considered a masculine colour and soft, pale blue was feminine. So if we can inadvertently flip that around, perhaps there are other changes we can make deliberately that will actually improve things.

What's the point of such a swap, putting higher IQ women who would work part-time as veterinarians or sit on their asses in government offices in the programming salt mines, and letting the men take a load off in the pink jobs that are slightly lower paid? Guess there is some half-baked notion that girls can have pink and blue, and the boys will have no color; and maybe as jobs become scarce it is possible for women to get every white-collar job, but the joke is on them since they will have to pay all the childcare and taxes.
