The Declaration of Independence was really about a people’s Dependence
On Selfless United Leaders
Acting on Universal Principle
Who in turn were Dependent
upon the Will and Sacrifice of the People
On July 4, 2014 we remain dependent on those we empower:
Government & Corporations
To operate our democratic system of principles and processes
in order to nurture
and to protect us from tyranny, inequality and injustice
The European occupants of colonial American were dependent upon a small group of leaders to solidify their efforts and unify their thinking. Every one of those leaders chose not to impose their strong personal beliefs on their peers or citizenry. Instead they chose the most universal principles they could conceive over individual opportunities for wealth and power. They stood for a civilization formed and functioning free from the tyranny of within and without.
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” – Thomas Jefferson
The signers of the Declaration of Independence were dependent upon a mass of people to rise up in support. The people were dependent upon their new government to honor and extend the nascent foundation of human rights for themselves and future generations.
And the governments to follow were dependent upon the people to vigorously and earnestly construct commerce, industry and society within certain bounds.
Definitions of Tyranny:
Absolute power, especially when exercised unjustly or cruelly (The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language)
Arbitrary, unreasonable, or despotic behaviour or use of authority (Collins English Dictionary)
Today, the actors have changed, but the relationships have not. The people are dependent upon our leaders
Congress, the Executive Branch and the Supreme Court,
—to provide a framework of capital, education and jobs to satisfy the demand for products, services and enterprise.
Governments and corporations are fully enabled and empowered by us. Their existence is through our laws and for our benefit.
Governments and corporations are not things. They are made up of people like us
but controlled at the top by a very small number of leaders whom
we count on,
to establish systems and processes that serve us.
We depend upon governments and corporations for large scale frameworks and resources
that provide enterprise, sustenance and value
and that protect us from tyranny and harm.
“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson
July 4, 2014 is when we say enough is enough to those we depend upon for systems that nurture us, treat us as equals and provide a truthful basis for understanding and action.
We will not accept an executive branch that fails to protect us from the tyranny of massive financial and industrial giants who systematically deny us free enterprise and safe and sound free market practices.
We will not accept a Congress with members whose intent is more about their election than creative, thoughtful and energetic action to help all of us.We will not accept a Supreme Court with members whose unfounded theories and rationalizations threaten equality for all and embrace the tyranny of the power of wealthy corporations and individuals to overwhelm the electorate.
Our government and corporations are systems of people who accumulate and distribute wealth and resources and human enterprise on our behalf – for the benefit of all stakeholders.
We need to be able to depend upon each other to protect the unifying ideals that we celebrate on the Fourth of July. Those entrusted to lead us must live up to the high standards of the framers of our extraordinary organizational system. Let’s support leaders whose only agenda is to nurture all of us, ensure equality, educate with truth and establish compassionate and intelligent systems that renew the promise of the framers on July 4, 1776.
We are the people we depend upon.
Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems are the founding principles that stand up to the test of time and tyranny. They are our Declaration of Dependence.
“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” – Thomas Jefferson
