Rejection of the American Birth Right By the Baby Boomers and Later Generations

Rejection of the American Birth Right By the Baby Boomers and Later Generations

I think there are generational differences in this country in the acceptance of Transformational Marxism and later  acceptance also of Forms of Fascism.   Daddy Bush in the early nineties was a leader of what is called the "New World Order", making it outstanding in perception by many Americans  Although Daddy Bush tried to present the New World Order as  something different than what it was, it was and is a fascist manifestation.  It was not a rule of law, certainly not the law we see in the Bill of Rights.

How could Americans who fought Fascism in World War II accept Bush's New World Order  which was fascist?  The Baby boomer Generation - or at least the baby boomers in the universities to begin the change toward an acceptance of totalitarian government and Culture -  led the way to an acceptance not only of Transformational Marxism, but later also a form of fascism.  The Counterculture happened in the sixties and seventies.  Daddy Bush's New World Order Speech was in 1991.  The coup based upon fear of death from a Virus happened in 2020.  A whole generation and more was led away from a clear understanding of and a desire to continue the American Birth Right - especially its God given rights, which Jefferson briefly taught in the Declaration of Independence and which Madison and his Committee in the House made law in the Constitution.  The Baby Boomer Generation did not understand all that very well and probably theirchildren even less.

The Declaration of Independence says "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. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."

What is the American Birth Right?  Well, legally it is  found in the Bill of Rights and written briefly into the Declaration of Independence.  The American Birthright has a Protestant Christian point of origin, starting in the Great Awakening Revivals of the 18th century.  Our Birth Right was put into our Culture, Political Ideology and Theology in war with England.  England gave us some of the beginnings of our Bill of Rights, but the Bank of England and the King were then trying to dominate us and overthrow our God given rights from Scripture (Isaiah 10: 2, for example). And so in a sense the men who fought the Red Coats gave us our bill of rights.

The Bill of Rights includes Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition, the Right to keep and bear arms, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, Right to due process of law, freedom from self-incrimination, double jeopardy, Rights of accused persons, right to a speedy trial, Right of trial by jury in civil cases, Freedom from excessive bail, protection from cruel and unusual punishments. and powers reserved to the states.

Supreme Court decisions have made more explicit the right to due process in the 5th and 14th Amendments. The 5th Amendment states that “…no person shall …be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” Supreme Court decisions have established a procedural and a substantive right to due process.

The right to due process has been made explicit in the doctrine that the law itself must be written in such a way that a defendant can defend himself against a charge brought under a law that is too vague or only describes a subjective feeling of being wronged. The law itself must be written in an explicit and clear way so that in criminal cases an objective type of action becomes the focus of guilt or innocence, and not just a subjective feeling of having been wronged.

And - the American Birth Right as stated briefly by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence might imply also that the individual under the U.S. Constitutional Republic has the right to be free of being charged and put in prison for behavior which does no harm to another individual.  Totalitarian regimes almost always punish citizens for behavior that does no harm to another individual, but is claimed to violate an ideology held by the totalitarian rulers.

The American Birth Right is not only based upon the Northern Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation in Europe and in England.  It also came out of the Reformation in Scotland.


Historian Quentin Skinner in The Foundations of Modern Political
Thought, 1978, goes over the influence of several Scotch
and English Christians, such as John Knox and Samuel Rutherford, on John
Locke and the late 18th century American political ideology behind the creation of the Constitutional Republic.

John Locke's book, Two Treatises of Government, according to Skinner, influenced Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, and had an influence on James Madison and other Founding Fathers.

Isaiah 10: 1-2: "Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed. To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right of the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless."

There are some other verses in the Old Testament about the right of the people - Lamentations 3: 33-36, and Malachi 3: 5.

John Knox and Samuel Rutherford in Scotland, created, from scripture, a view that supported the right of the common people to oppose a totalitarian government, which does not respect the rights of the people. These ideas
of Knox and Rutherford were secularized by John Locke and
Thomas Jefferson made them into the Declaration of Independence, one of
our founding documents which does briefly state a political ideology.

"Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion." Dwight D. Eisenhower

College campuses are the breeding grounds for socialism/communism... I'd lose no sleep if they all burned to the ground. 

what would you say you do here office space GIF

What does anyone do here?

Astute! I tend to experience what's called "losing sleep". I'm pretty sure any seeming loss I achieve thereby is in fact a gain. Or even a Gain.

The Baby Boomer Generation did not understand all that very well...

From your keyboard to God's monitor.

As the son of Silent Generation parents, I was raised to think independently from within the shadow of Boomers because they saw much of the problem that is so apparent today. I resent knowing more about these things that matter than many of them. There is no excuse for the Boomers, NONE! Sick of hearing how bad everyone else is.

The idealogical subversion of American youth really accelerated during my Generation X, many of which have Boomer parents...  but the Millennials and Zoomers have really suffered the most in the ways of indoctrination. I don't blame them nearly as much as I do the Boomers because they are the ones who turned those two latter generations into entitled brats, much like the Boomers have become in their later years.

My Generation is stuck in the middle and PISSED OFF.

Statism is what hurt the Boomers. They bought into it a little too much!

Scott: any ideas about what unwittingly may have taught the parents of "Boomers" to be...complicitous and duplicitous? {#apploud.gif}

I'm not sure I can speak for the parents.

Let's face it, Boomers built so much of the modern world we all enjoy and they're proud of that. Behind many great things/ideas was a Boomer. Huge generation, lots of accomplishments.

But all of this generational pride has blinded them to their failures, especially at the state level, with some of them catastrophic and ongoing. They don't accept blame or want to let go of power. They will resist change even when they know it's for the better. Things like that have led to the collective fit being thrown by much of the millennial generation. And through the years as a result, many boomers have lost sight of what Halfback speaks of imo.

Meanwhile...

Perfect gif to summarize what you wrote. Call me Han if you want...

Dude, I have to. That gif you found is priceless. Love it.

Haha yes, Han..  for those who understand it, it's both hilarious and priceless...   most places I've shared don't get it. All of GenX seems to get it....  but then it was created by us for us lol

Harrison Ford, man. The grapevine (so to speak) years ago...maybe 30?...informed me that his first flick may have been "American Grafitti". The one time that I caught a few bits of it on advertiser television, I was not impressed. I do remember how cute Cindy Williams was.

Oh, aKK, I'm with you. Took me a long time whether you are in fact what I presumed, which was and still is the very definition of the word prescience. I am prescient.

pre·science /ˈpreSH(ē)əns,ˈprēSH(ē)əns/ Learn to pronounce noun the fact of knowing something before it takes place; foreknowledge. "with extraordinary prescience, Jung actually predicted the Nazi eruption"
