According to Thomas Jefferson,
“government’s are instated among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” (The Declaration of Independence).
The 3rd President of the United States of America also understood that the power of government can only come from the people who consent to be governed. It is the people and who determine the future of any form of government. If the people are unhappy, Jefferson gave them an out.
“Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of welfare, it is the Right and obligation of the People to alter [through election] or to abolish it [through revolution], and to institute new Government” (The Declaration of Independence).
The foundation of how people are willing to vote or weather or not they are willing to stand up for what they believe in regardless of the cost, is tempered by the moorals that the individual is raised with.
Once a government is in place the powers of the day, begin to seek to weaken family infrastructures and morality that starts with religion. They may have claimed that the removal of that Lord’s prayer from the front of a public school is to up hold the first amendment, but
“Congress shall make no law regarding institutions of religion,” doesn’t give the US government the right to medal in religious affairs (The Bill of Rights).
In fact the first amendment is saying that the government has no right to get involved at all. The text is clearly written and leaves no room for interpretation.
If the agenda of the government was to up hold the Constitution, they would have displayed comprobly religious documents from the represented religions of the school. But no the agenda is clearly stated,
“religion is an opiate for the masses” (Karal Marks).
History has proven that by breaking down the family and fostering an exstistental morality the powers of to day are more likely to stay in power tomorrow by virtue of complacency. In conclusion morality has everything to do with government.
If morality had nothing to do with government, government would have no interest in keeping the peace. Jails would not be such big business in America unless freedom in America is not more than illusion and the common wealth is nothing more than livestock for individual consumption.
It is my belief that for a group of people to come together and form a government they must first be of like minds. The basic common throughout history has been a desire to live both peacefully and productively. For that reason religion became the corner stone of everyday life. No government was heard of when prehistoric man worshipped fire. Yet they had a hierarchy within the tribe. Religion came first.
Thousands of years later government stated to take hold. It is my belief that Man can have a religion without government that becomes the foundation of the common morality but it is not possible to have a government without a foundation in morality; for the result will always be chaos.
