Quotes of the day

posted at 8:15 pm on July 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

The assumption of natural rights expressed in the Declaration of Independence can be summed up by the following proposition: “first comes rights, then comes government.” According to this view: (1) the rights of individuals do not originate with any government, but preexist its formation; (2) The protection of these rights is the first duty of government; and (3) Even after government is formed, these rights provide a standard by which its performance is measured and, in extreme cases, its systemic failure to protect rights — or its systematice violation of rights — can justify its alteration or abolition; (4) At least some of these rights are so fundamental that they are “inalienable,” meaning they are so intimately connected to one’s nature as a human being that they cannot be transferred to another even if one consents to do so. This is powerful stuff.

***

By 1776, the Atlantic Ocean had become what one historian has called “an information highway” across which poured books, magazines, newspapers and copies of the debates in Parliament. The latter were read by John Adams, George Washington, Robert Morris and other politically minded men. They concluded that the British were planning to tax the Americans into the kind of humiliation that Great Britain had inflicted on Ireland.

As eight years of war engulfed the continent, not a few of the rebels saw that the Revolution was a spiritual enterprise that would never really end. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a Pennsylvanian who signed the Declaration of Independence, wrote that the war was only the first step in the Revolution’s destiny to transform America and the world.

History confirmed his intuition. In the next hundred years, other nations and peoples would issue 200 similar declarations.

***

But then came the late 1960s, and over the next two decades American individualism was fully unleashed. A kind of tacit grand bargain was forged between the counterculture and the establishment, between the forever-young and the moneyed.

Going forward, the youthful masses of every age would be permitted as never before to indulge their self-expressive and hedonistic impulses. But capitalists in return would be unshackled as well, free to indulge their own animal spirits with fewer and fewer fetters in the forms of regulation, taxes or social opprobrium.

“Do your own thing” is not so different than “every man for himself.” If it feels good, do it, whether that means smoking weed and watching porn and never wearing a necktie, retiring at 50 with a six-figure public pension and refusing modest gun regulation, or moving your factories overseas and letting commercial banks become financial speculators. The self-absorbed “Me” Decade, having expanded during the ’80s and ’90s from personal life to encompass the political economy, will soon be the “Me” Half-Century.

People on the political right have blamed the late ’60s for what they loathe about contemporary life — anything-goes sexuality, cultural coarseness, multiculturalism. And people on the left buy into that, seeing only the ’60s legacies of freedom that they define as progress. But what the left and right respectively love and hate are mostly flip sides of the same libertarian coin minted around 1967. Thanks to the ’60s, we are all shamelessly selfish.

***

Little by little, the home of the brave and the land of the free has become a nation of rent-seeking dependents clamoring for their share of state largess. Even before the latest entitlement blowout called Obamacare, we crossed the line where more than half of Americans receive some kind of assistance from the government every month, paid for by the fewer than half that still pay income taxes. As we move into the future and the number of dependents grows while the taxpayer pool shrinks, we call the result social justice rather than its old name: theft.

Our forefathers shed blood rather than render unto King George. Yet today we madly mortgage our nation’s future to foreign powers, piling debt upon debt without limit or thought as to how it will be repaid. These debts ensnare our children and grandchildren even as we stop having them, confident in the knowledge that the government will take care of us in our old age, so why bother with the trouble and expense?

If we were still a nation capable of shame with enough intellectual integrity to call things as they are, if we hadn’t debauched our language as badly as our currency, if we had the courage to look in the mirror and see how woefully we have squandered our Founders’ legacy, this Fourth of July would be a day not of celebration but of atonement.

Just another reason I use Bing as my search engine. I know my few hits don’t make a huge impact, but a few here and there won’t hurt.

Now, maybe going to Google and doing searches on g.u.n related items might be kind of fun. Sort of an internet flash mob for that could be kind of cool.

Cindy Munford on July 5, 2012 at 12:57 AM

The inspiration behind this law was that when illegals driving stolen cars and/or no registration+ no insurance ,
or driving drunk etc, have their vehicle impounded, it is a real inconvenience to them and other illegals with them in the vehicle . Illegals are inconvenienced because how will they get home if their car is impounded ? Who will come and pick them up from the police check point because all their friends and family might be illegals too. Plus if their car is impounded , illegals will have to pay to get that car back and it becomes tricky when they are not the registered owners of the impounded car.
So , just don’t arrest illegals, and don’t impound their car.
No such luck for US citizens and legal residens though, because the law is the law and we are a country of laws :(

Axe on July 5, 2012 at 1:15 AM

The concept of “unalienable rights” is only possible in a construct that involves deity. In a purely material construct, there are no such things as “rights” except if you want to concede that people are allowed to grant these to each other… but even then, there is no such thing as a right that cannot be abridged if people decide it can be abridged. Nothing is unalienable in that construct.

mankai on July 4, 2012 at 9:25 PM

You have to believe in God to understand that having double-standards between yourself and others is to be subjective, while having one standard for all people is to be objective?

Why would an atheist have to believe in God to either admit/acknowledge that it’s undeniable on a rational level that the Golden Rule is the underpinning of all true i.e. consistent morality, or in order to practice the Golden Rule?

Bmore on July 5, 2012 at 1:35 AM

The Castle of Indolence is a poem by James Thomson. A group of idiots, believing the poem was important, took the time to develop about 500 definitions and annotations for it, to make it accessible to people that can’t remember, offhand, what “overweening” might mean. :)

They thought it was important because it explores everything progressives are looking for, everything they think they are trying to achieve, and even, metaphorically speaking, what happens when they get it. These idiots believed the truths in the goofy poem were extremely important and that everyone should read them.

They sent Beck a copy. :)

The poem was commonly known once. Washington Irving, in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” quotes from it, and it isn’t possible to know what that short story is about without reading [TCoI]. Irving was a rock-star and a king of snark, and he managed to write two things at once in The Legend.

This group of merry idiots are idiots because they didn’t really understand just how much people do not want to read through a poem written circa 1750 that includes words like “overweening.” :)

Someone you know, I think, might have participated in the creation of the annotations, particularly the religious and etymological definitions. :) That person would have a pecuniary and professional interest in selling the annotated versions. I’m sure he wouldn’t know — no one wants to read it. Heh.

A raw copy is available and freely downloadable, but without the annotations, it’s a steep climb. The idiots are thinking this dilemma over.

***

The nightmist.us site was a running experiment. I tested shopping carts and blogging software and server-side scripts on it — etc etc etc etc. It never really had anything in particular to do. And I’ve reorganized during this whole world’s ending recent history. *poof* — on to other things. :) It was sad. Been there so long.

… I still have some things to link. Axe does, and I do. I like the degree of separation … still wondering exactly what to do about new digs, hot to handle it.

Temporary point to alongaboutmidnight.com till I can figure it out.

No that was a really great answer. You are smarter than me. I’ll give it a tumble though. I have a blog, mostly pictures and such. I don’t write well. I do like pictures though. ; )

How did we ever survive without a/c. I remember sitting in our wooden desks at school so hot you couldn’t even think. Those were the olden days when girls had to wear dress or skirts and boys had to wear long pants.

Man, those were so not the good ol’ days…

Good Night Cindy, Sweet Dreams.

Sweet dreams and God bless, everyone.

Great song, but, that’s redundant when speaking of Mark, isn’t it? :)

Early Elvis would have approved of this!:

Ignoring “smart” thing. :) Wisdom over IQ any day, even if it were so, and strictly speaking, it isn’t. Know what most polymaths do for a living? Underachieve.

But Bmore, no link from Bmore to the blog? Keeping some separation in there?

I went swimming with the better half today, when I went to put my glasses on, one of the lenses popped out and fell into the lake. I managed to recover it. But I had to look very close indeed.
