#05- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

People in power with the proper respect of responsibility are allowing freedom to live, which means other people will act on their own intentions. FREEDOM IS CHAOTIC, so what has happened to the Native American’s could happen again. FREEDOM IS UNORGANIZED, and with the short 70 or 80 years of life we all have presently, organization is key in keeping life understood. FREEDOM IS LOVING and Godly LOVE can be defined for following, from 1 Corinthians 13: 4- 8a, here:

LOVE is long-suffering and kind. LOVE is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up. Does not behave [vilely and evilly], does not [focus on] its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but it rejoices with truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE never fails!

Using the living aspects of love in contrast with the self-serving aspects of pride we can draw comparisons for ourselves and our actions.

Selfish Pride is impatient and brutal. Selfish Pride is not trusting, it does not apologize, does not get true humility. Does not behave honorably and worthily, does not watch out for others interests, does not stay concerned. It does not forget incidents of mistake or offense. It does not rejoice over true justice, true nobility, and true fairness, but it rejoices with deception and falsehood. It drags all things, suspects all things, doubts all things, weakens all things. Selfish Pride always fails!

The contrasts between selfish pride and LOVE are distinguishing, but as we all know every person created needs to grow to develop both physically and personably as does every nation of people. To condemn a person of the present for the actions of similar, not the same, people in the past doesn’t allow that person the freedom to become who they are going to be.

For the present people of the United States including all Native American peoples fighting to keep the “Constitution of the United States for value in the present world, and this begins with reading that document and fighting to keep those rights as defined with the theme and its variable factors. Beyond that is the need to demonstrate LOVE as chief, George W. Harkins, of the Choctaw tribe did in 1832 with his letter to the American people. His fear for his people, and the other Native American’s was demonstrated as was his concern and care for the world in which he lived. Even if people like Mr. Harkins suffered with the fear grown from Selfish Pride, is an American example, our people should all learn how to LOVE properly in accord with circumstances in life.

#04- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

When you think of government what are you thinking of? Is it the laws, the regulations, the ordinances or is it the people with titles in positions of power? Government is a combination of all things controlling or governing a people. And the writers of the Articles of Confederation showed this.

What are the Articles of Confederation?

After considerable debate and alteration, the Articles of Confederation were adopted by the Continental Congress on November 15, 1777. This document served as the United States’ first constitution, and was in force from March 1, 1781, until 1789 when the present day Constitution went into effect.

What do these say of value for our consideration, we have a different constitution? A summary from Our Documents.gov shares a summary of problem focus for this government document:

The Dickinson Draft of the Articles of Confederation named the Confederation “the United States of America,” provided for a Congress with representation based on population, and gave to the national government all powers not designated to the states. . . . In this “first constitution of the United States” each state retained “every Power…which is not by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States,” and each state had one vote in Congress. Instead of forming a strong national government, the states entered into “…a firm league of friendship with each other…”

The Articles of Confederation failed to a small degree, the States freedom “allowed space for attack by foreign powers through attributed financial weaknesses, increased with extra-ordinate loan interest rates with funds shared by foreign governments with individual States, and increasingly greater population growth” which effected federal government power among the nations in the world. [Dr. Colomaio, 2013] The control of funds by people or nations affects the value of other people or nations. While the actions of European Americans towards the Native Americans happened because of selfish pride, which is a fault of any who don’t practice Godly LOVE. People in power often fail to remember their responsibility towards others because of the large extent of privileges they have gained. Some of these people act with the best of intentions, but find that with time their great intentions are twisted.

#3- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

A government in accord with the statements made in the “Declaration of Independence and Patrick Henry’s words was to be a government of representation for the people, by the people not a government of money and power for those with money and power, at least that’s Rhapsodie’s interpretation from reading that document. But there was another factor; it was to be a government where God was used in interpreting the destiny of the country and its people. In fact the following sections of the “Declaration of Independence” support Rhapsodie’s suppositions:

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, . . . Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient [not needs, just passing by, not remaining] causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them [the people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

This was the mind of people declaring independence from England. I so wish the people of the U.S. valued their history and the freedom’s they should still have enough to keep our government from changing laws, ordinances, and policies for “light and transient causes.” The alteration of regulation in regards to the proper political feeling is not necessarily good. People interpret the “Declaration of Independence‘s” words differently, and that’s okay as long as they take the time to also question your & their individual interpretations.

So let me ask you this.

#2- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

Freedom requires work to maintain, work to uphold, and work to stay free while others want to suffer being made slaves for the minimal amount of value slavery gives. Wait, is Rhapsodie saying that there was value in slavery? NO THERE IS ONLY A MINIMIZATION OF RESPONSIBILITY and less control over the privileges freedom with responsibility allows. For every privilege there is responsibility.

Patrick Henry, on March 23, 1775 shared the words now recorded as “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death states that the reason he believes in the fight for freedom:

We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House.

His compilation of historical facts based on life in America before the revolutionary war helped incite many more people to battle for as Mr. Henry stated, “There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election.”
