Distrust of Power Not Necessarily Disrespect for Leaders

The Founders had more confidence in the people than they did in the leaders of the people, especially trusted leaders, even themselves.  They felt the greatest danger arises when a leader is so completely trusted that the people feel no anxiety to watch him.

Alexander Hamilton wrote:

For it is a truth, which the experience of all ages has attested, that the people are commonly most in danger when the means of injuring their rights are in the possession of those [toward] whom they entertain the least suspicion. (Federalist Papers, No. 25, p.164.)

Two hundred years of American history have demonstrated the wisdom of the Founders in proclaiming a warning against the frailties of human nature in the people’s elected or appointed leaders. Every unconstitutional action has usually been justified because it was for a “good cause.”  Every illegal transfer of power from from one department to another has been excused as “necessary.

— Bailouts, Bank take-overs, Auto Industry take-overs,Obamacare… any of this sound familiar?

The whole explosion of bureaucratic power in Washington has been the result of ‘trusting” benign political leaders, most of whom really have good intentions.

Armstrong Williams:

The social engineering of liberal policy makers often has the unintended consequences of making life more difficult for the people it is trying to help.  They justify liberal policies by correctly highlighting real institutional barriers like racism and historical poverty that have historically held back the disadvantaged. However, instead of teaching the disadvantaged to fish so they can feed themselves for a lifetime, they merely give them a fish to eat.

A Miracle that Changed the World, continued:

Thomas Jefferson struck out with all the force that tongue and pen could muster against trusting in human nature. Said he:

It would be a dangerous delusion where a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go….

In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, BUT BIND HIM DOWN FROM MISCHIEF BY THE CHAINS OF THE CONSTITUTION. (The kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Annals of America, 4:65-66; emphasis added.)

The wealth of information and context revealed in this book is astounding. I recommend that anyone concerned about the future of America, go out and buy this book today.

The foundation of our country and the principles which have made us the greatest civilization of the planet are explained and exposed as the salvation of human race. To understand where we are going today, we must understand the importance of the Founding Fathers and the radical change in governess which they established.

History was never my favorite subject during my years of education. Dates, names, places… all seemed so overwhelming to me. Totally lost in the flood of information, the context was illusive, if not obscure. The 5000 Year Leap, by W. Skousen, taught me more in a few days then I learned in years of formal education.

Asked to grade themselves on their knowledge, 89 percent of adults polled believed they could pass a basic test on the American Revolution. However, 83 percent failed the test that covered the underlying beliefs, freedoms, and liberties established during the Revolution.

This book should be REQUIRED READING in every school in America.
