Historical parallels of USA and East Prussia.

The archives of the founding father Benjamin Franklin.
Benjamin Franklin wrote “An Edict by the King of Prussia” for Philadelphia’s Public Advertiser in September of 1773. This satirical article mocks the dominating relationship that Great Britain held over the Colonies by paralleling the illogical relationship between Prussia and Great Britain. Franklin, from a Prussian point of view, highlights the restrictions and laws that Prussia intends to impose on Britain.
The tyrannical approach of Britain led colonists to produce satirical works and propaganda to encourage the people to stand up for their rights, ultimately leading to the start of the Revolutionary War.
Strangely enough, there are historical parallels of Great Britain with American Colonies and Russia with a colony in East Prussia. We are on the right American path to future Independence for East Prussia.
