Columbiana Vs Americana - Principalities and Powers Rising and Falling Based on Mere Opinions

Reader comment on item: A Return to the Academy

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Apr 6, 2017 at 11:13

Histories of the world have a tendency to adhere to the perceptions and not the facts as the survivors of the myriad events that scar memories tell their observed microcosmic tales for the record; only later does the academia that follows (if and when it does) take on the macrocosmic task of defining or redefining opinions of such events as they intersect the human condition emerging from the ruins, looking for a new direction from which to recover and start again.

But therein lays the underlying problem: who has the proper frame of mind to set a new course by which history may be learned from to avoid the mistakes of prior epochs of human failure?

America was formed from the previous cataclysmic failures of European governments ruling in justice, instead ruling imperiously over the lives of millions of economic slaves whose lives were mere tools to the banal agendas of empires that rose and fell to the siren song of the lust for power, envy, jealously and lust of privileged life for the ruling elite.

The form of government prepared for the citizen of that land which adopted the term American was set to show the rest of the world that manmade governments will never survive; that as America was formed with Divine principles, if one chose not to follow those principles, America too would devolve and lose the preeminence that was bestowed in the 20th century.

It is this defection from the founding American principles that academia focuses on instead of studying what made America the most widely known country in modern times with a better than average sense of the common good; and find the means to promulgate that instead of studying the dark powers that hated America from its beginning and seeks nothing but her demise.
