America cannot live in peace while violating the Ten Commandments
You may find it ridiculous, but that is the truth – a nation cannot live in peace when it violates the Ten Commandments, and this post explains why it is so.
And it is equally valid for believers and disbelievers.
And it is equally valid for any denomination in religion and democracy.
And that is what the US violated in her modern history to dismay of many (see for example – Social Justice: When Good Becomes Evil? – Foundation for Economic Education (fee.org))
Why ‘living in peace is impossible while violating the Ten Commandments’ is explained not in the theological concepts (that are understood by few) but by reminding of their Torah meaning.
You shall have no other gods before Me
The most important gift we have gotten from God in the Torah is the human virtues – what is Good to happily live by, and what is Bad we must fight against.
The God’s virtues guide us to live and help others to live in freedom ‘in the image and likeness of God.’
The true God is the protector of individual freedoms and ‘teacher’ on how to live by them, while Government-God is the protector and enforcer of own totalitarian power.
Government-God imposes on us its own totalitarian values which are hostile to God’s virtues and concocted to make us slaves in the care of Government-God.
A clash of two hostile virtue systems makes national life in peace impossible.
You shall make no idols
The Torah meaning of idols is worshiping something believed to be ‘holy’ in hope that it delivers what satisfy you.
American totalitarian almighty elites created numerous idols for worshiping in support of uniformed totalitarian rules for all, such as equal representation, human rights, environmental justice, democracy, and more.
Worshiping those idols transforms us from unique creative humans ‘in the image of God’ into spiritual and economic slaves of Government-God.
Slaves hate their slave owners, and a hating nation cannot live in peace.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain
When we see ‘In God We Trust’ on the residences of Government-God, no comments are needed!
Keep the Sabbath day holy
The Torah meaning – one day a week we should devote to reviewing our actions to make sure we live guided by God-prescribed virtues. It may be done at home or any place of collective worship.
Unfortunately, we are doing it less and less that makes less probable the nation living in peace.
Honor your father and your mother
The Torah meaning – live by the God-guided virtues which your father and mother received from their predecessors and transferred to you, and you will transfer to your children.
Contrary to this, American Government-God takes the care of family and children upon itself. The God-guided families hate it, and the hate ruins the national peace.
You shall not murder
The Torah meaning – you should not kill for personal satisfaction or benefits, and such killing is the murder (might be both physical and moral).
Our Government-God has done it in the recent past and continues doing this now domestically and in some foreign lands that significantly weakens America’s ability to preserve national peace.
You shall not commit adultery
The Torah meaning of this, and the consequences should be obvious.
You shall not steal
The Torah meaning of this – you should not steal by yourself and through others, you should support yourself, family, and community by own labors, and by mitzvah/charity.
Regrettably, the steal through others is fashionable these days – this steal is called the wealth redistribution and legalized by American Government-God.
Of course, many hate this steal and the hate harms national peace.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
That is what is practiced these days on a mass scale and considered to be the most useful Government-God weapon in strengthening totalitarian power.
Of course, many suffer from this and that harms national peace.
You shall not covet
The Torah meaning of this – you should follow your own personal achievement drive and this drive is not worshiping monetary possessions.
If you love for example painting, dancing, plumbing, or teaching, you are happy just with earnings enough to cover your interests, and you do not envy your neighbor- billionaire who owns a big estate and has a personal chauffeur.
American Government-God violates this Commandment by propagandizing the false equality, and thus harming national peace.
So, what to do to make Americans again living in peace with each other?
An answer is obvious:
To dethrone Government-God and establish a government that is guided by the True and only One God – a government that is servant to citizens.
How we have gotten to the state of near-civil-war, and how to get back
How have we gotten to the state of near-civil-war, and how to get back? – An answer to the question of how we have gotten to the state of near-civil-war is simple: while we believed that our freedoms and virtues are under the total protection of the US Constitution and God, our totalitarian politicians were covertly using this belief to deprive us of our freedoms and virtues.
We have not realized this on time and therefore not defended our freedoms and virtues from the government as the Founders and God instructed us.
How has it happened?
We believed in the equality of individual economic opportunities, but they covertly were imposing collective economic equality on us.
We believed in the Freedom of Press as a shield against government corruption, but they corrupted the press to disgrace those among us who fight openly their corruption.
We believed in an independent and honest judiciary, but they politicized judiciary to discredit the opponents.
We believed in the family as cornerstone of all moral national decisions, but they destroyed the family by concocted rights of LGBT against traditional family, wife against husband, children against parents.
We believed in the right to vote for everybody who loves this nation, but they allowed and encouraged voting by those who hate this nation.
We believed that the government was authorized to tax us only for defending and protecting the nation from enemies foreign and domestic, but they taxed us much more for unauthorized restructuring the entire social fabric of the nation.
We believed that the citizens of different races, religions, countries of origin, professions, life interests have the right to live and work in their own unique communities without any discrimination against other communities, but they ruined all that by forcing us to live, work, educate children, create businesses, defend ourselves by enforcing their rules that violate our freedoms and virtues.
And all the above have brought our nation to the state of near-civil-war.
The question of how to get back is less certain.
Even if we elect a MAGA-inspired president like Donald Trump, he/she may not be able to win a war against a mighty government bureaucracy of about ten thousand ‘guns,’ and with no support from politicized military.
Constitutional demagoguery camouflages a constitution’s coma.
Any Constitution is in a coma if its interpretations justify the incompatible actions of the incompatible social movements such as Leftists and Rightists or Secularist and Religionists. That is the case with the US Constitution in modern America, but constitutional demagoguery hides it.
The constitutional demagoguery touches everything – religion-state separation, freedom of expressions, guns ownership, abortions, racism, equality, justice, gender, rape, crime, family, education, and so on.
What the demagoguery is not touching, and does it on purpose, is the very idea of any constitution that is as Marriam-Webster dictionary defines it:
the basic principles and laws of a nation, state, or social group that determine the powers and duties of the government and guarantee certain rights to the people in it.
Let then recall what powers and duties of the federal government, and what rights to the people were followed by the framers of the US Constitution who were Presidents.
At his Presidency, one of the founders of USA and creators of the US Constitution Jefferson performed his constitutional duties from 1801 to 1809 in the following areas:
- Jefferson dealt with two major challenges to US authority: piracy along the Barbary Coast of North Africa, and British impressment, which resulted in Jefferson instating a mass embargo of European goods, the Embargo Act of 1807.
- Jefferson authorized the Louisiana Purchase, which effectively doubled the territory of the United States.
- He did not intervene to ‘help’ the citizens live by their guaranteed rights.
Thus, most of the domestic challenges mentioned in the above (religion-state separation, freedom of expressions, guns ownership, abortions, racism, equality, justice, gender, rape, crime, family, education, and so on) were handled not by federal government but by local municipalities, sheriffs, judges, churches, families, communities, and of course the citizens with guns.
And all that was done precisely in accordance with the very spirit of the Constitution – as guided by Constitutional powers and duties of the federal government, and rights guaranteed to the people by the framers of the US Constitution.
America lived by the true interpretation of the US Constitution for over a century.
During these times, most Americans were living by the virtues of individual freedoms ‘in the image of God’ trying to reach their individual best, appreciating individual freedoms above economic equality.
Of course, the less wealthy dreamt of becoming wealthier but not at the expense of the wealthier.
Most Americans lived this way but not all of them – some were observing what was going on in Europe where the so-called ‘Progressive Era’ was shaping up with Marxism as a leading force.
In the early twentieth century, the Marxist virus reached America and a destructive pandemic began. The ‘reformers’ began working to ‘improve’ American society.
- The period of US history from the 1890s to the 1920s is usually referred to as the Progressive Era, an era of intense social and political reform aimed at making progress toward their totalitarian ‘better’ society.
- Progressive Era reformers sought to harness the power of the federal government to eliminate unethical and unfair business practices, reduce corruption, and counteract the negative social effects of industrialization.
- During the Progressive Era, protections for workers and consumers were strengthened, and women finally achieved the right to vote.
The social virtues of ‘Progressive Era’ were opposite to the Judeo-Christian American virtues and thus of the US Constitution.
While American God-guided virtues are rooted in the belief that all people are created equal ‘in the name of God,’ the progressives believe that all people are born in different classes unequal (in the name of Marx and Co.)
While American God-guided virtues are rooted in the belief that everybody may reach his/her best in peaceful collaboration and competition with others, the progressives believe that a class in a nation can improve their wellbeing only through a class war with other classes after which the winning class becomes a Hegemone, and the losers follow Hegemone orders.
In the Marxist class wars, the nominated winning classes were laborers in the Soviet Union, Arian race in the Nazi Germany, Oligarchs in modern Russia and China, and BLM and some others in America. But those winning classes were ‘fig leaf’ for behind-the-screen totalitarian rulers.
While American God-guided virtues are rooted in the belief that a government must be limited and restrained to avoid its interference into the life of families and communities, the progressives believe that the government must amass its power to fix all presumed injustices and inequalities in families and communities.
However, Marxists and Comrades met the resistance of the true US Constitution, and the Constitutional demagoguery began to change the very soul of the Constitution.
Nowadays the failure of Marxist-led Progressives’ ideas has been proved by history (Nazi Germany, Soviet and modern Russia, China, Burma, Cuba, Uganda, etc.) but they have been already corrupted by Power, and they fight to preserve it.
That is up to us, the people,
to take the power back and begin living by
our own virtues secured by our Constitution.
Restoring American God-guided democracy
So, what is God-guided democracy that needs to be restored? – It is a democracy that elects representatives for national governing with the sole purpose of protecting individual liberties that are at the heart of the life “In the Image of God.”
God-guided democracy of individual freedoms is the governance that protects the people’s God-given ability to decide on their own, without delegating to a government the morality-rooted choices such as
- How to educate their kids and take care of health
- Where to live
- What is acceptable local equality and diversity
- To do or not to do abortions
- Accept or not to accept non-traditional sexual behavior
- Pray or not to pray in public places
- Who are the disadvantaged and how to help them
- And most importantly, how peacefully cooperate with different and rival neighbors.
A democracy that elects the people with well-written biographies in the belief that they will do the right things because they are simply good is not God-guided democracy.
A democracy that elects the people who promise eliminating the concocted sins of national history is not God-guided democracy.
That is not a God-guided democracy that elects the people who dream to remake the nation with the concept of equality and equity.
And that is not a God-guided democracy that lets the government have unrestricted taxation power.
In theory, such restoration is simple – by electing the people who believe in utmost importance of returning the power over the people to Almighty God from an almighty government.
But in practice, it is exceedingly difficult.
Why? – Because we have already empowered those who are ‘eliminating’ the concocted sins of national history and who are ‘dreaming’ to remake the nation with the concept of equality and equity, and those people are not giving up their power without murderous fight.
No political party is interested in restoring the God-guided democracy – they are fighting for more democratically-obtained power although Republicans accept God presence in government.
Most news mediums are making money not by serving the public with fact-based information, but by promoting corporate interests, and therefore are not interested in God-guided democracy.
Big Corporations have learnt how to make money with the use of a corrupt government – not in the free–market competitive space.
However, we have influential individuals who understand the need to restore God-guided democracy, and they may lead the restoration if elected.
Let us find them and elect!
To those who fetish or misunderstand the word DEMOCRACY.
Yes, Democracy is a system of national governance when 51% majority use the free elections to force 49% minority obey majority orders.
But Democracy may bring freedom or oppression.
Democracy brings freedom when a great national majority (about 90%) love individual freedoms without a mighty government influence in their lives, and 49-51% disagreement is about governance methods to preserve what the nation loves.
Most Western European nations have such freedom democracies.
Democracy brings oppression when a great national majority fears individual freedoms and prefers a mighty government to be responsible for their lives.
Russia, China, Turkmenistan are examples of such oppression democracies.
In the past, America was a nation of freedom democracy, or for those who love playing with definitions – freedom republic, democratic republic, constitutional republic, religion-state-separation nation, …
It was America of God-guided democracy as those who intellectually digested these Blog would realize.
Nowadays, America is rapidly moving to an oppressive democracy because of successful work of our almighty government to split the nation into rival groups who are fighting for more national wealth and power that might be given to them by our mostly unrestricted almighty government – being redistributed under nicely sounding slogans such as anti-racism, equality, affirmative actions, equal representation, minority empowering, …
To those who are misled about our government’s democracy priorities.
The highest priority of God-guided democracy’s virtues is to preserve and strengthen individual freedoms “in the image of God” while the highest priority of our almighty government virtues of “our democracy” is unbelievably hostile to God-given virtues as it is seen from the following:
Transgender Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine says that gender-affirming care for minors has the ‘highest support’ of the Biden administration.
Levine has promised that medically changing children’s gender will soon be normalized, praising the controversial medical intervention which has been banned in several states at the Pediatric Grand Rounds Session at Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.
