For peace and proseperity to reign upon the earth, it is necessary for mankind to understand some essential principles. Man is the off spring of a divine Creator. We are subject to him and to what our Founders referred to as “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God”. These laws apply to all of us, even those of don’t even know that these laws exist. You don’t have to know or understand the Law of Gravity to be influenced by it.
These fundamental laws govern the Universe and can not be violated with serious consequences.
The first principle is that all men and women were endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights which include the right to life, liberty and property.
No one has the right to violate the life, liberty or property of another except in the defense of their own life, liberty or property.
Men have a right to organize themselves into communities and may choose to create governments in order to better secure their God given rights. The only power that the people have a rights to grant to their governments are the right that they themselves already possess.
A government that has authority that exceeds that of the people that it was created to protect enjoys a position of superiority over the people. A government that has the power to initiate force in order to get the people to comply with it rules, regulations and edicts can not survive for it violates the God given human rights of the people.
Only a government that respects the life, liberty and property of its citizens and refuses to iniate force on its citizens is capable of creating perpetual peace and prosperity.
Throughout history there has always been powerful groups and individuals that have violated the unalienable rights of the masses in order to satisfy their own personal greed and lust for power.
As long as governments continue to initiate force to get their subjects to do what they want, human bondage and tyranny will reign supreme upon the earth.
