How will you celebrate Independence Day?

Awolnation, Not Your Fault

Some look anxiously and find a fog of profound political corruption, increasingly authoritarian gestures of the federal government and change – not necessarily for progress, freedom or peace. Nor is change limited to politics – the planets are undergoing change and that includes the Earth. Global warming and space weather are forces beyond our control, manipulation and general means to adapt.

The American experiment seems in imminent danger. The ship of state seems headed for the rocks – why else would an anti-gun administration double down on it’s orders for ammunition for domestic security forces and make our civil liberties suspendable at the drop of a hat? Civil unrest is being provoked by the very technocrats that seem to fear it the most.
What can we hope? In whom shall we trust? Peace and security is a suspicious banner – if it is a banner purchased with our dignity as human persons. Or our liberty. Or our destiny.
… 
Reflect (if only for a moment) that American Independence won a constitution which has no compare. Nor ever shall – I fear.
We the People  of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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…
 …
If you celebrate the Fourth of July, understand that you celebrate the Constitution of The United States of America, those that fought and labored for it, fought and labored by its commission, and those that continue to defend, honor and serve it.
The U.S. Constitution is what unites Americans in a noble and historic course of Freedom (human freedom). We are united by it in purpose, mission and destiny. It demands certain discipline, faithfulness and virtue. Of each of us. And lots of love wouldn’t hurt either.
U.S. National Archives where the Declaration and U.S. Constitution are preserved for our dignity.

And if we can’t swallow that together with pride and humility – we shall be divided, broken and – each of us – thrown to peril.
All will be punished.
But its not your fault. Right?
Or is it?
