Brett Kavanaugh and the Democratic Party How our American Family is Divided Between Two Opposing Worldviews and What We Can Do About It.
First in a Five-part Series
We the People,
- a period of prolonged and intensive questioning or investigation. “she relented in her determined inquisition and offered help” synonyms: interrogation, questioning, quizzing, cross-examining
- an ecclesiastical tribunal established by Pope Gregory IX c. 1232 for the suppression of heresy. It was active chiefly in northern Italy and southern France, becoming notorious for the use of torture. In 1542 the papal Inquisition was re-established to combat Protestantism, eventually becoming an organ of papal government.
What Brett Kavanaugh went through was an early Halloween trick mascaraed by the Democrats as a “job interview” according to committee definitions. But in reality, it was a Democratic inquisition. An inquisition is an investigation conducted with little regard for individual rights. Brett Kavanaugh was intentionally demonized by the Democrats. Why? Because as an Originalist, what Brett Kavanaugh believes to be true justice under our Constitutional Republic, Rule of Law, is for the political tribunal of the Progressive Democratic Party-political heresy worthy of torture.
So, what has happened to our American family that we would treat one another like this? What could have happened that would cause some to forfeit all decency and civility in disrespecting another family member?
“What is a worldview? As the word itself suggests, a worldview is an overall view of the world. It’s not a physical view of the world, but rather a philosophical view, an all-encompassing perspective on everything that exists and matters to us. A person’s worldview represents his most fundamental beliefs and assumptions about the universe he inhabits. It reflects how he would answer all the “big questions” of human existence: fundamental questions about who and what we are, where we came from, why we’re here, where (if anywhere) we’re headed, the meaning and purpose of life, the nature of the afterlife, and what counts as a good life here and now. Few people think through these issues in any depth, and fewer still have firm answers to such questions, but a person’s worldview will at least incline him toward certain kinds of answers and away from others.” James Anderson June 21, 2017
“Additionally, it refers to the framework of ideas and beliefs forming a global description through which an individual, group or culture watches and interprets the world and interacts with it.” Wikipedia
“To say that a worldview is an interpretive framework is to say that a worldview is like a pair of glasses -it is something through which you view everything. And the fact is, everyone has a worldview, a way he or she looks at the word.”
“Have you ever put on someone else’s glasses? If you have, than you know that they do not always help your sight. In fact, putting on someone else’s glasses can give you a headache, a throbbing pain in your eyes, or simply make you dizzy. If the prescription for the glasses is not the right one for you, what you see through the glass will be a distorted view of reality. In other words, without the proper prescription, glasses will not help you see the world clearly; rather they will keep you from seeing the world as it really is.
“So, if we have the right worldview,” I commented, “we can better see and understand the world around us, and if we have a wrong worldview, we will be at risk of wrong conclusions about life and the world around us.”
“Exactly,” John replied. Steve Green Faith In America; pgs. 39-40
Worldview is what we believe is true about anything. What we believe is true about anything defines us- forms our identity in giving meaning to everything we believe. Our worldview thinking affects our conscience, our opinions, convictions, core values, our point of view, our paradigms. Our worldview functions as our “common sense” our conscious and unconscious attitudes, actions reactions responses, how we view others, ourselves. Our worldview forms our personality, our way of life, our perception, interpretation of reality.
FOUNDING FATHERS WORLDVIEW
In 1776 with the Declaration of Independence, we find the principled worldview of our Founding Fathers. These eternal principles of true liberty and freedom became foundational to our Constitutional Republic, Rule of Law form of Government. These original Documents of Freedom, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights-the first 10 amendments to the Constitution reflect the worldview of our Founding Fathers from which they formed their political philosophy.
Those of us who also hold to this same worldview of our Founding Fathers are often referred to as Originalists, and often referred to as Constitutionalists. The 2016 Republican Party Platform is based on this Originalist-Constitutionalist worldview. Like Brett Kavanaugh, those of us in agreement with him as Originalists, Constitutionalists must understand that our political philosophy worldview is rejected by the Progressive Democratic Party.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WORLDVIEW
The Democratic Party holds to the political philosophy worldview of Progressivism; therefore, they are Progressives. Progressivism found its beginning in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Ever since its inception it has incrementally gained a stronger and more opposing grip on the political philosophy of our American family. Progressivism’s core beliefs are diametrically opposed to those of our Founding Fathers and therefore to those of us who hold to our Originalists/Constitutionalist convictions. The Democratic Party’s 2106 Platform is built upon the political philosophy of Progressivism.
SO, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
How can we better understand the difference between Originalists with their belief in the Constitutional Republic, and the Rule of Law form of government and Progressivists with their Democracy, Rule of the Majority, “mob rule” form of government. The differences can best be understood in the answer to the following question:
THE FLOW OF AUTHORITY QUESTION
We the People: By what authority and who gave it to them did our Founding Fathers lawfully do what they did in justly writing and unanimously authorizing, endorsing the Declaration of Independence?
Our Founding Fathers believed that freedom originates with God. They believed that the authority of the people’s Creator endowed unalienable rights is delegated down from the Creator in agreement with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God first to the people, at conception in our “heart’. [our DNA, our “conscience, “our “spirit,” our “soul,” our “being.”] This is the worldview standard built on the natural and moral law of those principles upon which one individually or nationally could rely on to live in just civil relationship with one another.
The Declaration of Independence with its reasoned facts and adherence to the truth is the most defining document in American history of the principle of the flow of authority and the nature of the relationship between authority and the boundaries, laws within which authority can be exercised justly. When these Flow of Authority principles are applied lawfully they work to justly bring about true liberty and freedom in any generation at any level of government, local, county, state, national, international. It is these same principles that are the foundation of our Constitutional Republic, Rule of Law form of government.
The Nature of The Flow of Authority
The Nature of authority is that all authority is delegated down, not up. Our Founding Fathers reasoned from self-evident truth that all authority is delegated down from God. God delegates authority down first to the people through their Creator endowed unalienable rights. These Creator endowed unalienable rights are designed to be justly exercised in agreement with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.
The people institute their government. And then the people delegate limited authority further down to the government. The government is to be equally accountable to the flow of authority in governing by the consent of the people. The laws of the government to be just laws, must be in agreement with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God and the Creator endowed unalienable rights of the people.
Therefore, they reasoned since Natural Law and Moral Law are established by God, the supreme governing authority is God. Within the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God is the Freedom of Conscience. Freedom of Conscience to submit, be accountable to or not submit, not be accountable to the flow of authority of the Laws of God. Together in assembly our Founding Fathers agreed that they would submit, be accountable to the flow of authority of God that He established in the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and the Creator endowed unalienable rights of the people.
How worldviews are applied, played out in day to day life often results in the types of conflicts that had our Founding Fathers assembled in Philadelphia in 1776. They were there to find a way to resolve the conflicting Flow of Authority worldviews causing the unfortunate violent family feud between the Colonies and Great Britain. The same kind of conflicts that our American family is experiencing today between Originalists/Constitutionalists and Progressives, Progressivists.
The Progressivism form of government rejects all of the above. The Progressivism form of government is therefore accountable to no authority other than its own self-derived authority. The Progressivism form of government is not accountable to governing by the consent of the governed or to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. Progressivism is about total power and control.
The Progressivism form of government does not believe in the fixed standard of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. They reject the objective self-evident truth of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God and Creator endowed unalienable rights. Progressivism is a subjective worldview believing that rights come from Government.
Progressivism believes their own evolutionary theory that human nature and history and the Constitution are “organic,” living organisms. The Progressives believe that the needs of human nature and history are constantly changing from generation to generation. Therefore, the government must make laws in each generation that respond to and respect the evolving social and economic conditions of the people. For Progressives the true authority of the Rule of Law is rejected for the false authority of the rule of the people, majority rule-mob rule. They believe individual rights are minimal if any at all. And must be surrendered for the greater good of society and economy. The Progressivism form of government is accountable only to itself. Not to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God and our Creator endowed unalienable rights. Not to the Constitution. Not to We the People. Not to God.
The basic mantra of progressivism is that the ends justify the means. With their insatiable appetite for control and power, the uncivilized holier than thou self-righteous disrespect of another human being, in this case Brett Kavanaugh is the manifestation of their worldview standard operating procedure.
We the People, Progressivism has become firmly embedded in our culture and its institutions through administrative agencies exercising their authority unjustly in making and enforcing their own laws without the consent of the people. If in the election process these progressives gain a majority in Congress, we Originalists/Constitutionalists holding to the true governing authority standard of our Founding Father’s worldview need to understand that their subsequent governing laws will disrespectfully rule over us with authoritarian lawlessness.
