“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,——That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”
Excerpt From United States Declaration of Independence
People think we live in a post-history world in which the things we learned about in school no longer happen.
That’s a complete illusion.
Our way of life can collapse any second. The threats are beyond our understanding.
And that’s why it’s so important to stick to the basics of freedom that has made America great thus far… because there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that things are going to stay this way… and a massive amount of data pointing to the unfortunate reality that it probably won’t.
The Nazis came to power in a democracy - never forget that. Our individual rights weren’t given to us by our leaders; we were born with them. Our leaders can’t give us anything; they can only force us to behave in certain ways. If we truly want to be in charge of our lives we need to find the tools necessary to circumvent the bullshit ourselves.
