As Americans we sit in absolute wonder that there is anyone on the face of this earth who would advocate the ‘fundamental transformation’ of the United States of America’s government. Yet should we wonder? Should we expect that in a nation where so many have no idea of the history leading up to this—as George Washington so aptly identified to Lafayette, miracle—nation’s creation and the journey to get to where we are; that they do not understand?
Knowing but some little insights of our journey, that journey of adventure, unknown to any other society of man—than the English experience—it is somewhat diametric to hear anyone say; we are a nation with a constitution designed by a bunch of old white men. For if there is any more truth, any more wonder, any more acknowledgement of a miracle which created this nation…that little iconic identifier is so absolute…that without that fact; this nation would not be.
For you see, this nation forgets that in our beginning, this resurrection of a nation based on the idealism of a singular concept, liberty, wasn’t fermented, screened, and aged only on this continent. For while this nation was being filled with those Englishmen from England…in was at that same time, in that England they had left…that mankind was experiencing a revolutionary political upheaval previously unknown in this world’s history.
For without England, there would be no America—with the philosophical idealism of its foundations—as there is no other example of any nation ever developing the action of a liberty based nation.
It is the history of England, occurring while this nation was being created—during the 16th and 17th century—that is today, and if this nation is to persevere be the cornerstone of our political environment.
The reality of reality is ignored in this nation. That little reality is, the law of the jungle, might is right…dominant…over all others are absolute. Be it lord, master, king, or any other identifier one wishes; one commands, and one obeys. This reality is the reality of man’s history. The philosophy of ancient Greece did not occur because all men were in toil to provide sustenance; it occurred because some men…who were provided with sustenance…had their time for such adventure. Those who provided this sustenance were slaves. Even Plato accepted this as the normal of society—realizing that if all had to struggle to exist, where would be the time for greater pleasure? How could there be government, academia, philosophy, time to do all these other adventures if someone else wasn’t supplying those who were participants in these activities with their needs? They could not have been; for it was the productivity of a few, leading to the benefit of others creating this opportunity.
This is the journey of mankind. The journey everywhere in the world, throughout history man’s journey followed. The separation of born a slave, kept a slave, unless given—not by some creator, or having inalienable rights—but by the civil rights of government saying so.
It was the island of England where this challenge by man occurred. It was the stubbornness of the Saxon, the victory of the Norman, the clash of two cultures—where one in their desire to be freed from the other—created this principle and ideal of freedom; to be removed from the yoke of any domination of government on the individual man.
This is America’s philosophical foundation—that no man, especially no government—has by the power of government to dictate and determine those rights endowed by our creator…as our Declaration of Independence so eloquently stated…given to all men at the moment of their ‘creation.’
Our prayers should go out to those English white men who created this wonder of this nation. For if our genesis would have been of any other, it would not exist. For even today on this planet, no nation has ever begun from the design of liberty, and the protections of man from the only entity that can take away freedom—government.
