Natural Rights, XIII
With a long research career on crime, I conclude that this U.S. crisis is the result of the combined evilness of the U.S. government and the private sector. Since all evils originate in the human mind, as Jesus Christ also says in Mark 7: 23, I will merely identify the public and private mental errors.
The U.S. government expressed itself by saying that the Declaration of Independence has only a single authority, to enter war with England. However, the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence has a second authority, to build one nation of People under God. Such a nation can be built only with God and John Locke’s social contract theory.
The private sector expressed itself through atheists, materialists, evolutionists, free-market economists, the Cato Institute, free traders, republicans, and tea parties. This group of thinkers seem to have influenced the U.S. government to replace American life, which is based on God and Locke’s social contract theory, with the ugly life of Romans, who murdered Jesus Christ. This ungodly Roman life is based on the anti-social theories of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Leo Strauss describes the Roman life and its many problems in detail in Ch. VI.
Our TVs today tell us that the above expressions of the U.S. government and the private sector have been successful in changing the American life to the Roman life. Since the Roman Empire fell apart, Americans can expect the USA to fall also.
