Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXX (The science of Gottfried Leibniz, Part IX)
In his 1697 paper "On the Ultimate Origination of Things’ (see G. H. R. Parkinson’s book on ‘Leibniz: Philosophical Writings’) Leibniz says, ‘eternal truths (of things) must have their existence in the same subject, which is absolutely, or metaphysically necessary, that is in God.’ Then, in the same paper he says, ‘It is also evident how God acts not only physically but also freely; and how there lies in him not only the efficient but also the final cause; and how from him proceeds the reason not only of the greatness or potency that there is in the mechanism of the universe as now established, but also of the goodness or wisdom involved in the establishing of it.’ With these words, Leibniz merely agrees with the ‘Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.’
So why has the USA rejected Leibniz’s New System and the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God in the Declaration of Independence?
The answer I always receive to this question is that the U.S. field of law decided that the Declaration of Independence is only a declaration of war against England. But is the decision of the field of law right? I say that this field made a major error because it is dividing the people of the USA.
Other people agree with me. For instance, on pages 247-251 of David Barton’s book on ‘Original Intent,’ we find lots of information saying that Declaration and Constitution cannot be separated. Further, in Article VII, the Constitution attaches itself to the Declaration. And on page 218 of Barton’s book, U.S. Congressman and Revolutionary soldier, William Findley says, ‘Men must associate together before they can form rules for their own government. ...’
Why does the U.S. Supreme Court rule today based on their own contrivances when the USA is founded as a nation under God?
