The United States is the first country in the history of the world to have been founded on the principle that men are endowed with unalienable individual rights and that the purpose of government is to secure those rights.
Today, the socialist enemies of the US, in advocating socialism, advocate the establishment of a universal monopoly employer for whom everyone is compelled to work by law, i.e., they advocate the reintroduction of slavery—but this time for all, black or white.
Nevertheless, they have the temerity to attack the United States and its founding documents on the grounds that some of the Founders owned slaves and prior to the 14th Amendment slavery was sanctioned in the US Constitution.
Such behavior is typical of socialists: it is a manifestation of their desire for the unearned. They think they have a right not only to everything, but to everything in a state of perfection.
Thus, they spit on the magnificent creation of the first government in all of history to be based on morally right principles. They reject it because it was less than perfect and required additional work to be made better. And meanwhile, they work to destroy it altogether.
So, let me state some relevant points: 1) Thought precedes action. 2) Principles precede policies. 3) Acceptance of the Lockean/Jeffersonian principle of individual rights precedes the establishment of freedom.
In other words, acceptance of the principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights was the essential foundation for the abolition of slavery in the US and is that foundation everywhere.
If you’re a socialist and thus advocate slavery today, you have no right to criticize any aspect of American history. If the day ever comes when you do condemn slavery, start by abandoning socialism and do so in the name of individual rights and their embodiment in the USA.
If there are aspects of the US today that you don’t like, know that any legitimate complaint you may have should be directed at violations of this country’s founding principles and never at those principles themselves.
So stand when you hear the National Anthem and salute the American flag. Or else go to the Gulag, to which, in your miseducated state, you are trying to drag us all.
