Did you know the man who wrote this has been appointed to a position the Senate must confirm, and that he will probably get confirmed?
A System of Oaths – Based in a Sincere Belief in a Creator – are Essential to the preservation of Liberty
The following story illustrates the erosion in our society’s understanding of the difference between Natural and Human Rights:
“We can pat ourselves on the back about the past 223 years, but we cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to the U.S.’s moving into the future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, an evolving sense of civil and political rights,” Stengel wrote.
Stengel went on to write, “The Constitution does not protect our spirit of liberty; our spirit of liberty protects the Constitution. The Constitution serves the nation; the nation does not serve the Constitution.”
I wish I could write that I believe Stengel does not understand the difference between the notion of Natural Rights upon which our Constitution was founded and the notion of Human Rights to which he desires to change our system – but I can’t. The man does know the difference, and it turns everything he writes about our Constitution into a study on political deception. Human Rights are not the same as Natural Rights. The first is a natural enemy of the latter.
