America is an exceptional nation, one born of freedom and independence. Throughout most of human history, from the days of King Saul to King George III, humanity served a ruling class. Most people were born into a society where they couldn’t contest the will of their regent. Not that they were desired as sovereigns, but that they seized the reins of power outside of the consent of their subjects, and usually by force. America became the exception to this ancient law of lords; we were the first real nation to assume that the people, being the principal elements of society, possess the authority to decide how they should be governed. Our forefathers sailed away from the old world of European monarchy into a new one where they could be free to pursue their own happiness, with their only king being God.
But all that is changing, and our American exception is at risk. Our beloved country is facing a slow, agonizing death; a death by a thousand cuts, one not dealt by conquering armies, but the infiltration of our institutions. Global-oriented organizations such as the United Nations, World Health Organization, and the World Economic Forum, among others, comprise an effort to undermine our sovereignty, and deprive us of our right to self-govern. Globalists at the World Economic Forum have declared war on us by launching a hostile campaign against “anti-globalism,” their euphemism for “patriotism.” Like the globalists of today, British opinion during our Revolution in 1776 was also inimical to our right to be self-governing. In order for us to better combat this current threat to our nationhood, it only makes sense to revisit the wisdom of our founding generation, and draw inspiration from it.
“A government of our own is our natural right: And when a man seriously reflects on the precariousness of human affairs, he will become convinced, that it is infinitely wiser and safe, to form a constitution of our own in a cool deliberate manner, while we have it in our power, than to trust such an interesting event to time and chance.”
-Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)
Natural Rights, as championed by Thomas Paine when he called for American Independence in his pamphlet Common Sense (1776), are intrinsic to our very humanity. From the moment we’re conceived to the moment we die, we possess rights that aren’t granted to us by any government, but which exist as part of who we are. Paine’s assertion that “a government of our own is our natural right” reinforces that we, the American people, possess the irrevocable right to decide how we’re to be best governed. At the time Common Sense was circulating, the British had refused the American colonies adequate representation in their Parliament, depriving them of their right to be properly governed, and were employing military means to subdue them. As a result, many in the colonies began to rally behind a common cry for freedom and self-determination away from the ineptitude and tyranny of King George.
The philosophy encompassing natural rights can be traced back to the age of Enlightenment, when philosophes such as John Locke espoused the rights of peoples to resist tyrants, overthrow them, and establish new governments better suited for their individual needs. In his Two Treatises of Government (1689), Locke codified three principal rights of Life, Liberty, and Property, which are likewise conferred onto our person from conception until death. Taking inspiration from this era, the Committee of Five, or the five men who presented the Declaration of Independence before the Second Continental Congress (Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston), incorporated them into the preamble, although they substituted “property” with “the pursuit of happiness.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
-Declaration of Independence, July 4th 1776
We can draw two important conclusions from these texts:
1.) Americans have a natural right to form our own government at our discretion, free from foreign interference. 2.) Our government is an instrument of we, the people; it neither confers nor grants rights to us. It possesses no authority other than what we have delegated to it, and serves only to better secure our natural rights.
We exist without government, but government cannot exist without us. It is an expression of civilization, an extension of nationhood, which we create to better preserve our inherent, God-given rights. This relationship between ourselves and our government represents a “social contract”; it’s a necessary evil meant to avert anarchy and fulfil our basic need for civilized order. We, the people, are preeminent and independent, whereas our government is emergent, and dependent on us.
A looming threat to our Republic
As I write these words, the globalists of the World Economic Forum are conspiring to revise the social contract drawn between us and our original government—without our consent. Through their use of money and influence, they have sought to undermine our constitutional republic and impose on us a radical new government pretending to be American. Through such initiatives as their “Young Global Leaders” program, the WEF and its affiliates have been busy purchasing our politicians, business leaders, and obfuscating our electoral processes like a parasite gnawing away at its host. Their allegiance lies not with our best interests, but with a vain set of utopian ideals.
The great danger we face is this pretense of American government, one that’s growing more and more radical. A government that places its own interests above the interests of the people who establish it is not healthy, but sick. How can we say that our social contract is valid, that our Constitution matters, when foreign money, driven by nation-destroying agendas, dictate the actions of our leaders? Such turncoats have been selling us out to foreign interests, and spend our tax dollars to enrich themselves at our expense. I contend that we can scarcely call the demagogues overseeing our nation’s controlled demolition “our government”; our true government is the Constitution, and the Federal body derived from it is entirely limited by what is established therein. It is our right to possess a government for ourselves, and to abolish it if we so choose, but at present, we aren’t choosing to abolish our Constitution; instead, it’s being wrongfully abolished for us by unelected rulers through outright dismissal and lack of enforcement.
We are presented with a situation that we, as a free people, must address with the utmost urgency. Our Constitutional Government is being replaced by a global authority, one that does not recognize our sovereignty over our government. If the politicians who now comprise our three branches of government continue to pursue anti-Constitutional policies, it would be imprudent of us to not resist them. A hostile bureaucracy, one that robs us of an honest administration of Constitutional law, is illegal, and its authority null and void. If we hope to remain free, we cannot afford to allow such usurpations to continue.
Like the Kings of the old world, the globalists of today aim to seize power for themselves without our consent, through their use of wealth, deception, and network of non-government organizations. They have parasitically infected our Federal Government in order to force a new social contract upon us, hindering our Constitutional rule of law. It is our duty, our responsibility in honoring our past, and defending our future, to oppose them with all might and courage. If they succeed, future generations will be enslaved under their neo-feudal vision for society. “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy”—per their own admission.
We must pray that America remains independent, now and forever, and may we find the united courage to preserve our independence from its despoilers.
