Episode 379: De Tocqueville On Christian Nationalism

De Tocqueville On Christian NationalismDe Tocqueville on Christian Nationalism

Video of De Tocqueville On Christian Nationalism at Rumble or YouTube

In so many ways, ‘Democracy in America was clearly De Tocqueville’s views regarding the principles of America and he makes many references to what many are debating what is called Christian Nationalism. For me, there is no debate but only ignorance of our history and a corruption of theology.

Keep It Simple

Read De Tocqueville for yourself but to help you this week I will begin with this De Tocqueville quote from Book 1, Chapter 2:

‘It must not be imagined that the piety of the Puritans was of a merely speculative kind, or that it took no cognizance of the course of worldly affairs. Puritanism, as I have already remarked, was scarcely less a political than a religious doctrine. No sooner had the emigrants landed on the barren coast described by Nathaniel Morton than it was their first care to constitute a society, by passing the following Act:

“In the name of God. Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, etc., etc., Having undertaken for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian Faith, and the honour of our King and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; Do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politick, for our better ordering and preservation, and furtherance of the ends aforesaid: and by virtue hereof do enact, constitute and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony: unto which we promise all due submission and obedience,” etc.

The Un-named  Soft Despostism

The Un-named is here in that the essay that I completed at this link begins with the inability to formulate a word. I find that many in our present do not want to formulate that word in describing our present condition. Yet when you take in all that is occurring across these United States it is imperative to see how the governors and the bureaucrats – after having thus taken each individual citizen, one by one into their powerful hands, and having molded him as they pleases – these elected but self-designated sovereign powers extends their arms over the entire society.

The Un-named has inflicted US with all these small, complicated, minute, and uniform rules. Many folks are mandated to wear masks that have no real effect except making a number of folks sick. We cannot associate closer than ‘6 feet’ apart. The rules are pushed across the state and into every home. With all of this, you – the most original minds and the most vigorous souls cannot break through to go beyond the crowd that wants to put a guilt trip on you for not wearing a mask.

Our response has been un-natural to a free society. More so, it is an indicator of a society that now puts security due to the fear of dying above Liberty and even economy. The religion of government has superseded the basics of a living God by making going to church ‘non-essential.’ I dispute that and am delighted to see churches/pastors taking legal action to that regard.

4-22-17 St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre to Trump: Policy Matters

Over the last two weeks I have been working on the various textual materials for SACPS.org from source writing about or directly by Sam Adams. I have been focusing on the topic of policy development. In doing this I had to do my standard ‘go down the rabbit hole’ in following the extensibility of Sam Adams knowledge base. During that journey is were I came to a comparison of Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos (translated: A Defense of Liberty Against Tyrants) and its similarity to “An supremo Magistratui resistere liceat, si aliter servari Respublica nequit?” – Sam Adams Masters Thesis translated “Whether it be lawful to resist the Supreme Magistrate, if the Commonwealth cannot be otherwise preserved?”

This then takes us into who and what many are in the US, and yes, even patriots fit the descriptions of my friend from the past Alex De Tocqueville. Yupper, He’s the first one to talk about the ‘sheeple!” We learn, that the socialist / communist of 1850 are the same as today and De Tocqueville cannot describe their tyranny and despotism in democracies or republics in the historic manner. No, he goes one further and describes our present government – “Elected Guardians.”
