Western Civilization defined in only 2 sentences

It only takes 2 sentences to define Western Civilization:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

This is the focal point of everything Western Civilization stands for:

  • We are created beings.
  • Because we are created, we are equal.  You can’t get to equality by way of Darwinian evolution.
  • Our rights are granted to us by our Creator, not by government nor by popular will.
  • Government is instituted not to grant rights, but to secure rights already granted by our Creator.

It’s that simple.  Thank God we finally have a President who is willing to defend our values and challenge all of us to do the same.

    Al Kroeger says:

    Very well said. Those words were not chosen lightly by our founders. Any thinking human being would agree.

    But those whose goals are at odds with that will always invoke the emotions to resist logic and combat common sense.
