US Independence Day: the gist

The most central piece of philosophy separating the United States from the rest of the world and leading to its true exceptionalism, is the axiom that rights derive from God or Nature, NOT from the state. This makes these rights inherent and universal to mankind, and unalienable. 

This profound premise also divorces the nation's founding principles from the current occupier of the White House, who is a quintessential statist. One cannot help wondering how this structural incompatibility will work out in the future.

Wishing our American readers a very happy 4th of July, May God continue to bless the United States for the wellbeing of all men!

To remind us, here are a few excerpts from HBO's miniseries on the life of John Adams and the first 50 years of the United States.
