We the People, by Rolf Witzsche - Nov. 2011

We the People

 


A commitment of a people to themselves 

The USA is the only nation of Earth that has had a profound renaissance in its recent history that still remains alive in people's heart and soul, which had been conceived in a period of renaissance, and has been built on the principles of renaissance. 

While these principles are currently banned in America, their substance remains in the heart of of the people of that nation that is founded on the vision of it being "a city upon the hill with the eyes of the world fastened upon it." On this root America stands as a foundation to usher in a new renaissance for all mankind. The words of its founding, "We the People" still stand tall. What seems impossible to do in almost every country on this planet, comes to light as being inevitable in the USA, not because it had been done before, but because it has a foundation there that is still alive.

We the People


John Trumbull  -  Drafting Committee presenting Declaration of Independence to Congress

In Congress, July 4, 1776.


The Declaration of Independence
By the Representatives of the
United states of America,
In general Congress assembled.

When in the course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Natures God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

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 abolish it, and to institute a 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. (continued).


With this declaration, the American colonies cut their ties with empire and began to stand tall. This history still remains and is about to make new history. 


The Constitution: Where freedom is rooted 

The above picture comes from an American blogger who reminds his fellow Americans that the "We The People" is the power behind the Constitution of the USA that defines the nation on a standard of principles that no man, President, Congress, or Senator, is free to ignore, who are all sworn to base their actions on this foundation. 

It becomes therefore the right of "We the People" to remove from office by impeachment or requested resignation, any officer who grossly violates the mandate given by, "We the People." 

The Constitution is thereby upheld as a platform of principles that demands actions in accord with the principles outlined in its Preamble, and limits all actions to those principles. This is the mandate not just of governments, but is self-acknowledged mandate of the nation towards itself. By its adherence to it, it will have its freedom, or by its failure its slavery.

I think the time has come to celebrate that a dawning is in progress, that the 'night' is far spent and the noon-day sunshine lays before us, because there is an awakening going on, an awakening with defiance towards deceptions, and with a commitment towards the standard of truth that the power of civilization rests with the humanity of mankind and the nature of the human being as endowed with the tallest qualities that are expressed in life. The commitment "We the people" is not a self-commitment by society to slavery, but is a commitment to standing tall.

As all principles are, the principles acknowledged in the Constitution, are timeless. Nor are they difficult to understand, for they are rooted in the very hearts of humanity, which is highly scientific in nature, expressed in the building of a human civilization. While deceptions in evermore clever ways have created tyrannies around the world in practice, the ever-growing scientific development in society tends to supercede the deception. By advancing footsteps in universal recognition, the principles that the USA is founded on as a bastion of freedom from empire tend to become respected and to become increasingly the guiding light.

Here is the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The following is a comment from the blogger. 
(http://blog.flecksoflife.com/2009/08/23/we-the-people-2/ - no longer online)

It has become increasingly evident that We the People have become negligent in understanding the foundations that this great country of ours was built upon.  In doing so, we have let the few abrogate the unalienable freedoms and liberties that were granted to us by our Creator.  Those rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

We  The People are the only ones with whom blame falls upon for the abrogation of our unalienable rights by the few in our Government.  We have facilitated this over decades by abdicating the Founding Fathers cornerstone of creating a limited government.  Once this cornerstone is removed then the structure of freedom and liberty for each citizen is put in perilous jeopardy. Citizens of the United States Your freedoms and liberties are in perilous jeopardy.

It is my fervent wish, through this post, to remind the citizens of this great United States of America what they have lost and that only they have the power to regain their freedoms, their liberties, yes their very lives back from the few in Government who have sought power and control over We The People.

One of the great European composers who was inspired by America's status as a leading edge new world, distant from empire, was Antonin Dvorak. During his three year stay in America he wrote his Symphony No.9, "From the New World". (in New York,) and in the summer of 1893 while spending time with his family in the Czech-speaking community of Spillville, Iowa, to which some of his cousins had earlier immigrated, he composed the String Quartet in F (the "American"), and the String Quintet in E flat, as well as a Sonatina for violin and piano. And over the course of three months in 1895, Dvořk wrote his Cello Concerto in B minor, in America.
