I thought it was a great philosophy while I believed that the United States and it's Constitution were based on an IDEA...open to all...and not a Tribe.
But I have since realized that it was only the
Western White European Culture that gave rise to the ideas enshrined in
the Constitution...and that that matters.
This is not to say
other races and creeds cannot be introduced to it and accept it, but it
does mean that nationality, ethnicity, and yes, race, and especially
CULTURE, matter and that all peoples from all over the world, are, in
fact, NOT interested in living in our Nation as Founded. Witness so many
who come here, and wish to change it into the countries that they fled.
careful of making the mistake of thinking that ALL people want to be
FREE. They don't. They have to be EDUCATED into it. It doesn't,
actually, come naturally.
Freedom is scary, and loaded with responsibility, chance, risk and danger. Most people would rather be safe than free.
