A History Known Mostly For Tyranny
History is filled with men oppressing men, and though the United States is not a perfect place, the frequency and magnitude of the "oppressing" is much less severe here. I recently sat down, once again, to read the Declaration of Independence & The US Constitution. I thought about how different these documents are to other social contracts in most other nations. There is one big difference. Ours, are an upholding of Individualism, as sacred. The Individual comes first. This has to be key in the social contracting world of human beings, Individuals are rarely mentioned, but Individuals are,( in our documents of founding) held as god-like Kings. Masters and commanders of our destinys, I guess I could say, isn't it good to be the King?
