I will never forget first reading the words of the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher in my ninth year outside of the World Book Encyclopedia, west of Tyler, Texas, during the year 1960. They struck a chord with me. “Freedom is the right of the soul to breathe.” During my fifth year as a curious and inquisitive young man, after my dear mother taught me to read, three of the first things I had endeavored to read with enthusiasm were the Holy Bible, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the Republic. . USA. He had discovered that these three documents were inseparably linked by the application of two very powerful words, liberty and liberty. My mother had continually emphasized that I, unlike many millions of subjugated people in the world, had been born free and endowed with freedom under the law. And this is how I learned that a free people must constantly value life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness that God has given them, ordained by the Creator of nature. Therefore, I learned at a young age to thank the God of nature every day before getting out of bed in the morning and going to sleep in the afternoon, for the freedom to do what would bring goodness. and happiness in my life. More than anything, I thanked God for the freedom I had to choose good over evil, in order to perpetuate the freedom that I, and millions of other Americans, had from restriction and dictatorship.
When I first read what Beecher had written over a hundred years earlier, my mind was shaped by the way I had felt in the woods southwest of Chandler, Texas, when I went with my squirrel rifle to hunt rabbits and squirrels for dinner. meat. The hills and valleys of acres of unfenced forest had made me feel very special for being in a free land where no person or government could enslave and subjugate me to do and say according to the whims of a dictator. My soul was graciously endowed by my creator with the substance of the alienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Having never forgotten the breath of freedom and liberty that my soul experienced the day and many days after that, when I had enjoyed feeling it over and over again, I had wished so much that others, my friends and my family, would feel the sales euphoria that it filled my soul.
However, there are so many Native Americans who have never experienced the feeling of being free, working a job, at any job, with the desire to be able to freely earn a salary for doing something well or making a product that is worth the salary. get paid to do it. I fondly remember my father, a freelance welder from East Texas, who told me when I was five years old to move a pile of pig iron from one place to another in his shop and, by doing it to his specifications, receive a quarter. shiny. from your hand to mine. It was then that I learned about free market economics and the value of a job well done. With that coin, I could have bought five large chocolate bars or put them in my pocket to save. That same day, I told my father that I would work for him whenever he needed me, and whenever I did a job for him, he paid me accordingly.
The freedom I had to choose to work, first to support myself and then my own family, appealed to me greatly, and the intense desire I had to use that freedom and freedom to do well in school, athletics, and others. places. -Curricular activities like the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program, in which I was allowed to freely dive when I was thirteen, followed me into adulthood, my time in the military, and later. The only people who do not know the joy of being free to choose their own path are those who were born into a condition of state dominance and were weaned by state control over them, as most Americans age 50 and younger have experienced. for the past 70 years. years. Yet even after 1960, I had to tread carefully the waters of government meddling in my life after JFK proclaimed in infamous words that seemed to cordially usher in the duty of every American to wholeheartedly promote the race. Spatially, “ask not what your country can do for you, but what it can do for your country.”
The spirit and specter of Hegelian statist Marxism were summed up by Kennedy’s rhetoric. Rather than affirming what James Madison had humbly stated in 1787, that the duty of representative constitutional government is to serve the people, not the other way around, Kennedy asserted that the duty of every American is to serve government with body and mind. The Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program commitment that I decided to support at age 13 embodied fervent statist principles. I can still recite it, word for word. It read: “I pledge to serve faithfully in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program and attend meetings regularly, participate regularly in unit activities, obey my officers, wear my uniform correctly, and advance my education. and training quickly to prepare me to be of service to my community, state and nation. ” The main thing I learned from the CAP was taking orders and never questioning the orders I would receive, the foundation for a successful career in the US military.In 1971, I enlisted in the USMC and achieved the PFC outside of training camp, at San Diego MCRD and later promotion to E-5 Sergeant in less than three years.
Soviet socialism, Marxism, and the Marxist communist dialectic were backed by nonsensical configurations of nonsensical apologetics, which made no sense when spoken to. Soviet citizens were taught, from 1918 until the fall of the Soviet Empire, in the same way that German children were taught Hitler’s hidden insanity and mindless Nazi doctrine in Nazi public schools from 1934 to 1945 to create the deception of the propaganda of the Nazi master race. Nazism and Marxism are basically the same application, as they are both totalitarian and despotic in their control over the minds of the governed. Of course, a militant revolution generally precedes the imposition of totalitarians in a nation-state, such as Russia. Nevertheless, despotism can be voted to exist as a ruling system, as it did in Germany. You see, Hitler legally took control of Germany through the uninformed vote of the German people, through the lies and misrepresented propaganda of the Nazi forces who were working to oppose liberty and liberty. In other words, an uninformed and deluded electorate can vote for themselves in the tyrannical chains of a virulent dictatorship.
Freedom and liberty, for me, are the joy of obtaining the success of one’s jobs and pursuits. Today, there are hardly any American children who can work menial jobs given to them by their parents, feel the sweat on their foreheads while performing jobs, experience the achievement and purpose of jobs, and then get paid. from your parents for completing jobs in the form of money that is fully worth their worth. When I had done a job for my father to his satisfaction and received a quarter for doing it, he could use that coin for whatever purpose he wanted; to save it, buy five chocolate bars or three comics. Most of today’s American children in the 21st century are allowed to demand worthless money from their parents, allowances, simply for being lazy children. Most children are not required to do any work for the money they receive. Statist state and federal governments, for the past 70 years, have ingrained in the minds of the governed that people do not need to work for what they receive from the nipple government. They are taught to suck the nipple of government donations vigorously and mindlessly.
Dr. Fred Schwartz first wrote in 1960, and then again in 1961, a best-selling book entitled “You Can Trust Communists (to Be Communists).” More than a million copies of the book have been sold since its second edition. In the book, Dr. Schwartz states, … The title of the book is not as surprising as it sounds … because, in a sense, communists (Marxists) can be trusted. They have expressed their intentions, their beliefs and even their methods in simple and unmistakable words in all the languages of the world. And they can be trusted to follow these intentions relentlessly. Are the Marxists of today, in the 21st century, different in their pragmatic goals and objectives than the Marxists of the era of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during the 1950s? Antagonistic in their efforts to unmask American Marxists during the decade 1950s, but he was much more correct than not in his Senate investigations. That time period was the beginning of a movement of sympathy for the popular spying Marxists, Khrushchev, “We will bury you” and the missile era Cubans with the crusade “oh, they didn’t mean that at all.”
The Communist Manifesto is as clear today in its denial and refutation of the freedoms proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence as it was when it was first written by Karl Marx during the 19th century. His economic rhetoric proclaimed in Marx and Engle’s “Capital” is also as unintelligible, misleading and absurd today as it was when it was adopted by the Russian Bolsheviks in the Russian Revolution of 1917.
As a human hand or foot grows numb and desensitized over time due to continued disuse, the collective consciousness and feeling of a republic may, over time, become numb to what was once the emotion and fervor of liberty and liberty. Why? Liberty and liberty must be perpetuated and kept alive and flourishing as an endearing public sentiment, like a tree or flower must be continually nourished with water and fertilized. Free Americans need to wake up each morning to thank the God of nature for the freedoms that were enshrined by the restriction in the holy law of the Ten Commandments and preserved through secular constitutional law in the Bill of Rights. They, all Americans, must pray daily that the blessings of liberty be secured and perpetuated for themselves and their posterity, as proclaimed in the Preamble to the United States Constitution.
