Brave Words from determined people.
Brave Words from determined people.

Some of the following words are mine—but the original thoughts are not.  ALL of these concepts and words of wisdom belonged originally to others who pondered Freedom’s Principles before me—in some cases hundreds or thousands of years before.  That’s what makes them so unique, for no matter how “old” these ideas are, they never truly age, because “principles” that can assure—and have done so for centuries—the survival of human liberty are eternal

Despite the attempts to degrade, destroy, belittle, deny, ridicule, and ignore these principles by assorted tyrants, kings, warlords, collectivist despisers of liberty, corrupt or leftist judges, and the disgusting socialist/collectivist/progressive mockers of the concept of individual freedom and responsibility over the entire history of mankind, the principles endure—sometimes ignored or forgotten or purged away for a time, but always there in the “dusty attics” of the minds of oppressed people, always ready to be rediscovered, forever declaring themselves as the “paths” to follow or resurrect when oppression becomes so unbearable that people must abide by them to survive, lest they perish.

These “principles” were inspired by, and I’m indebted to, the following sources as the real originators of this eternal wisdom.  I’ve merely put them in my words in order to share them with you:

TWELVE PRINCIPLES TO ASSURE HUMAN LIBERTY

society.  Those who defy these laws to the detriment of their fellow citizens must pay the penalty for their transgressions, for no member of society can be above justice, including the ruler or governing authorities of any nation.

 

Declaring eternal principles under which free people can live.
Declaring eternal principles under which free people can live.

 

“We the people” sometimes only give “lip service” to one or more of these principles, don’t we?  Our Founding Generation back in the 1780’s and 1790’s did their best to incorporate most of these ideas, in one form or another, into that inspired, but imperfect, document they codified for us—the one called the Constitution of the United States of America and The Bill of Rights—the one that ALL of our government’s elected leaders since 1787 vowed to defend and preserve—the one that MOST of our elected government leaders increasingly IGNORE today—the one that sinister enemies of our freedoms are doing their utmost to ABROGATE AND DESTROY.  Yes, THAT one! These “12 Principles” could be used to preserve our liberties forever, if we’d be brave enough to really use them—if we’d be sufficiently demanding of our governmental representatives that THEY abide by these ageless principles—if we as Americans who profess to cherish our freedom would INFORM ourselves adequately, do all we can to inform our fellow citizens,  and abandon our timidity and our lackadaisical attitude toward resisting the enemies of our liberties that are gathering around us in ever increasing and more threatening numbers, laughing behind our backs over how easy it has been to turn a people who once revered freedom into a herd of sniveling and groveling serfs.

Are we, the inheritors of the hard won and blood-bought liberties of Western culture, from Magna Charta to the U.S. Constitution,  willing to use these ancient principles to preserve our unique civilization and assure liberty to our future generations?  Will we, as Americans, ever be?  I wish I knew the answer to those questions.  I really do!
