The greatest battle we face in America today is the attempt by Leftists to overthrow and overturn the principles that abolished slavery and led humanity on the path to freedom. The Left’s unceasing attacks on our Founding Fathers undermine the values upon which America was established. And suppose the Democratic Party Leftists succeed in destroying our Founders in the minds of the American people. In that case, there will be no reason not to return to governmental oppression and, in effect, slavery.
Slavery is not uncommon in human history; freedom is. And, as in almost every human endeavor, our ignorance of history is going to destroy us.
As I have pointed out numerous times before, a crucial, cardinal error of modern-day Leftism is to judge all previous history by their (ever-changing) 2023 standards. THEY condemn “X, Y, and Z”, so it must be wrong for all people, especially if those guilty are white males. This is horribly unjust, but deliberately so. 1776 is not 2023, and the men who founded America could only look back at history from when they lived. They saw—rightly—government tyranny as the greatest enemy of human freedom, and they created a system designed to curtail that tyranny and enable people to be free in harmony with the rights their Creator had “endowed” them with—“life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And it was these principles—especially the second one, “liberty”—which, very soon in historical terms, led to the nearly world-wide abolition of slavery.
Slavery has existed for thousands of years all over the world. Within almost 100 years of the Declaration of Independence, economic slavery was virtually extinct. There are, of course, still pockets of sex slavery and child trafficking in the world today; men will always do evil. But, along with the wage-earning system of capitalism produced by the Industrial Revolution, the values launched by America’s Founders led to the eradication of the slavery so much of mankind had endured for all human history. And one might argue effectively that without the “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” ideals, the Industrial Revolution and capitalism might have adopted slavery, too.
Let’s hope the principle of “life” will soon abolish the Leftist barbarians’ practice of killing unborn children.
Folks, this is what makes modern-day Leftism, the Democratic Party in America, so frightening. They preach against “slavery” while the citizens in their cities cower in fear of their lives, in effect enslaved by the mongrels the Left has turned loose and refuses to restrain. They condemn the Founding Fathers as “slave-owners,” yet deny that it was the principles these very men built our country upon that eradicated the slavery Leftists (claim to) hate so much.
They fully intend to destroy America’s Founding Fathers in the eyes of our people because the Left does NOT believe in human freedom; the Left believes in slavery—not the agricultural-based economic slavery of the past, but governmental slavery, slavery where THEY are the “masters” and you are the “serfs”, and where you had better obey or you will suffer the consequences. Just ask the people of Stalin’s USSR or Mao’s China.
America’s great Founding Fathers constructed a system where the people tell the government what to do, not the government telling the people what to do. There has never been a country in human history based on that ideal. And the Left absolutely hates it. If you don’t believe it, go live in China like I did for ten years. And that is slavery—not economic ownership, but government oppression. Which is worse: being owned and told what you can and cannot do by a land owner or being owned and told what you can and cannot do by a government tyrant? We want neither, but who, ultimately, has more power? Government oppression is slavery by a different name, and our Founders knew it.
Patrick Henry, 1775, on the oppression of the British government: “Is life so dear, and peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and SLAVERY? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me LIBERTY or give me death.”
The aim of the Leftist Democratic Party is to return to pre-1776. They don’t want you to be free; they want to control your life; they want to tell you what they will allow you to do; they want to create the human utopia that exists only in their wicked, perverted, debased minds.
And the only way that utopia can be created is if they have total power and can enslave you by government decree. What the Democratic Party stands for today is a complete and total refutation of what America was built upon a return to government “lords” with the “serfs” and “slaves” doing as they are commanded. It’s slavery, pure and simple, under a different name—government tyranny.
I wanted to stay. The school I worked for wanted me to stay. I had students from all over the city who wanted me to stay, and I had letters and documents to prove it. But one government bureaucrat decided I had to go. Guess what happened? China, 2015. The same in 2019. I wanted to stay, but one government bureaucrat wanted me to stay. Guess who won the argument? Under a system of freedom, I would probably still be at that job I lost in 2015. I lost because some petty government tyrant arbitrarily exercised his power to rob me of my liberty and kick me out of the country. Is that what you want for America?
If it is, vote for the Democratic Party’s candidates. I LIVED IT!
Slavery isn’t uncommon in human history; freedom is. And, folks, we are about to lose it. The barbarians are overrunning the country. The jungle is taking over again. Thank you, Democratic Party.
