Fourth is Independence Day, the 225th anniversary of the reading to
the public of the Declaration of Independence from English rule.
I wonder how many Americans, as they enjoyed their holiday, gave any REAL
thought to the courage displayed by the signers of that Declaration or to the
incredible change which it brought to subsequent human history.
virtually all of mankind’s history, there has only been one real revolution. Always before, societies had thrown off one form of
collectivist rule only to institute a different form: from witch doctor to
tribal chief; from tribal chief to king; from king to oligarchy; from oligarchy
to dictator; from dictator to mob rule (democracy) and on and on and on.
These were revolutions only in the sense of a wheel revolving around a
motionless axle. There were almost
6000 years of such changes and all that time, mankind suffered starvation,
torture and slaughter.
Founding Fathers had studied that history and were determined to give Americans
a truly different form of government, one in which the chains would be taken off
the people and put on the government. It
embodied the idea that the individual, not his government should be responsible
for the destiny and welfare for his family and himself.
the place of the age-old belief that man must be subservient to some external
control came the most revolutionary idea of all time: the doctrine of
inalienable human rights. The
concept was that each and every individual was endowed at birth by his Creator
with the rights of life, liberty and private property which no government could
justly abridge or take away. It was
the birth of a wholly new type of civilization, embodying the best of all past
civilizations but rejecting their defects.
history had been a long succession of planners and fanatics — all determined
to mold people according to their own theories.
Throughout the centuries, they all had one inevitable result, the
ruthless suppression of the individual, always justified on the idea of the
“greatest good for the greatest number.”
tend to believe that because we have the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of
Rights that WE don’t have to worry about such a collectivist tyranny.
As a matter of fact, these documents are probably the best preserved
documents in the world. They are
encased in a chamber filled with an inert gas with a specially constructed glass
facing to protect them from fading. But,
for all their physical protection, these magnificent documents of freedom will
become only faded, forgotten museum pieces if too many Americans continue to
forget the significance of the words on the surface of the parchment.
Freedom, as given to us by our Founding Fathers, will be only a bitter
memory in the minds of those who survive the coming planned despotism under the
are seeing a false revolution taking place before our eyes in this country.
Instead of the divine right of kings and their appointed nobles, we are
seeing rule by all powerful political leaders and their appointed bureaucrats.
We don’t have serfdom under medieval feudalism.
We are beginning to suffer under the new serfdom, serfdom under the
modern collectivist state. All of
the old tyrannies are being brought back, only the names and outward appearances
have given considerable thought to finding a way to bring home to Americans
today just HOW SHORT a period has freedom, as Americans have known it, existed
in mankind’s recorded history. I
believe that I finally found a way.
imagine that today, all twenty-four hours of it, represents the total six
thousand (6000) years of mankind’s known history.
If we assume that those 6000 years started at Midnight last night, then
at about 11:30 A.M. this morning, we are only at 1125 B.C. and the Israelites
have only recently escaped from Egypt.
Christ will not be born until 4:00 P.M. this afternoon.
Europe will not begin to come out of the Dark Ages until about 8:48 this
evening. Columbus will discover the
New World at 2 minutes till 10 this evening.
The United States of America will come into existence, with the
ratification of the Constitution, at 9
minutes and 22 seconds AFTER ELEVEN tonight.
The Civil War will begin about 28 minutes after Eleven. World War II will
begin at 11:46 P.M. In this analogy
of human history, the 6000 years would have been completed at the Midnight
tonight which would have represented January 1, 2001.
at this way, it is easy to see that Man has only experienced the concept of
individual rights and dignity in the last 50 MINUTES of the entire 24 hour
period. Tragically, slavery,
serfdom and servitude have been the NORMAL conditions of mankind throughout MOST
of our history — and the kind of men who kept mankind in bondage for the other
23 hours and 10 minutes are STILL around us today, working diligently to take
the chains OFF of GOVERNMENT and put them back on the people.
Call them what you will, a cabal, a “secret combination,” a
conspiracy or whatever, they have been working diligently to subvert the U.S.
Constitution, which is the MAJOR obstacle which must be removed if they are to
be successful in their drive for world power.
200 years ago, a man by the name of Johann Von Goethe wrote:
are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
Constitution might not have been perfect, but it is far better than what they
are using in Washington today!
the American Revolution, the one TRUE revolution in all mankind’s history, is
to triumph, it must be born anew in the hearts and minds of each succeeding
generation. We have been failing miserably in passing on that knowledge
to our children and grandchildren.
is not ours by simple inheritance, but ours ONLY by virtue of enough citizens
being willing to constantly earn it — earn it by faith, by knowledge, by
works, by exposing the lies and deceits of the FALSE revolution of Socialism.
Monroe put it this way:
is a price tag on human liberty. That
price is the willingness to assume the responsibilities of BEING free men.
Payment of this price is a personal matter with each of us.”
OF THIS PRICE IS A PERSONAL MATTER WITH EACH OF US!!!
