Through the painstaking examination of our Constitutional Republic, Constitution, where we let it get off course and why, and who was involved, we are reminded again, this time by the Charlotte Observer in “Truths are Self-Evident” , that the solution IS the Constitution. It is good to know that we are not alone, and a mass awakening is happening.
There is no other course but to get back to the founding principles of our Country, no matter how much these principles have been ridiculed and ignored, or how long it has taken, or will take, to build this awareness in our citizenry. From the article:
At its birth, this nation justified its independence by asserting truths said to be self-evident, according to “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” Working from the great principle of human equality, the men who launched this experiment in popular government claimed a new basis of political legitimacy: the consent of those governed.
The founding of the United States was indeed revolutionary, but not in the sense of replacing one set of rulers with another or overthrowing the institutions of society. What was revolutionary were the ideas upon which the new nation would be built: permanent truths “applicable to all men and all times,” as Abraham Lincoln later said. The ultimate ground of government would be principle rather than will.
Unfortunately, few of our learned elites teach the self-evident truths that animated the Founders. Instead, they passionately embrace and pass on a more “modern” belief: No such truths exist. Certainly no truths applicable to all time, anyway.
The ‘learned elite’ derived their view of the Constitution in part from Darwin, and other advances in science. The science was applied to the management of society (social science; political science) with ‘efficient, scientific management’ of by government, based on how the ‘living constitution’ is interpreted by the ruling elite of the time.
Know the Enemies of Freedom
By now we all know to study the tactics used by Obama and the socialist democrats, namely Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” (the thuggery), and the Cloward-Piven strategy (the government systems).
What also need to work on the narrative of ideas coming forward to destroy our constitution and economy– the ‘intellectual tsunami‘ of the left. Like studying Alinsky, it is also important to understand the basis of the left’s narrative–for example, Darwin and the ‘living constitution’–to create the effective counter-narrative, such as ‘enduring principles for all men over all time”.
What would it look like with Constitutional governance, at the local, state, and federal level? That’s the vision we must create, as it is the only viable alternative.
