Today is July 4, 2021, the 245th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence that established America as it’s own nation. On this day our founders declared that they had a better idea for how human beings should govern themselves, and they were intent on putting it into practice. Time has subsequently recorded, and will again at some point in the future, that event and the governing principles that emerged from it as the greatest act of self-governance in human history.
I’d like to offer a hearty “FUCK YOU” to all those who now deride that magnificent moment, and an even greater one-finger-salute to those who are currently engaged in sabotaging these United States. The mindset that accompanies these attempts is wrong on it’s face, and the activities that surround this anti-Americanism are morally repugnant and should be criminal (many of them are).
I’d like to address one of the fundamental intellectual flaws that underpin these efforts, at least from within the “woke” masses who are currently doing the bidding of their monied puppet-masters toward a “world order” that would make slaves of us all. These mindless repeaters of the propaganda of the elite, useful idiots that they are, carry within them some illogical and warped sense of superiority that makes them wonderfully pliant. Their tendency toward odious virtue-signalling is a disease unto itself, but more importantly turns them into excellent vessels of poison–the worst kind of poison, capable of killing far more humans than all the viruses and biological agents we’ve ever known of that nature. The haters of America are pouring out that poison now, Sarin-like in it’s power to render us all helpless and eventually dead.
Their poison is the idea of perfection, or more specifically their absurd demand for perfection from everyone (living and dead) and toward everything (past, present, and future).
Pithy as it is to say, perfection within the human species is an impossibility. Striving for it may perhaps be noble, but obsession with perfection is both counterproductive and truly, bizarrely insane. Thomas Jefferson almost single-handedly drafted the remarkable Declaration of Independence, a near-to-perfect recognition of the rights of every person at creation and the “equality” with which we are all born–and yet, he was himself a slave owner (though he hated slavery and often wished for it’s abolition). Does his own human fallibility invalidate his contribution to the demonstrable betterment of mankind? James Madison et al wrote the most important governing document in history, which at it’s purest comes as close to removing human imperfection from the equation as any ever has or could. The American Constitution remains the very pinnacle of human governance, based upon concepts popularized by the likes of John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu and formed into a workable solution by Madison, Roger Sherman, Oliver Ellsworth, and others. It is a near-perfect document that advanced mankind as a whole immeasurably, but whose contributors were anything but perfect. John Locke, for instance, while generally opposed to slavery, both invested in and profited from slave trading and was greatly responsible for the creation of early governing documents recognizing slaves as the possessions of free men. Locke in many ways was a walking contradiction, certainly imperfect, but his theories represent the backbone of virtually every thought of self, personal liberty and responsibility, and governance that Patriotic Americans as well as the woke crowd hold dear! Examples such as these are easy to find–Benjamin Franklin was a notorious womanizer; John Adams was vain, spiteful, and exasperating (he’s been called “the George Costanza of the First Continental Congress”); Samuel Adams was reckless and indulgent; John Hancock was a smuggler. These were imperfect men, living in imperfect times–all too human, because imperfect is our natural state. But what they created remains as close to a “perfect way” as has ever been devised. The nation that sprang from it has lifted mankind immeasurably, despite America’s imperfection and the failings of her founders.
We are often chided to eschew our imperfections and strive for that utopian human condition which is unreachable. I commend the principle, but roundly condemn the modern ideology which insists that anything imperfect is unworthy. It is a special kind of stupid that demands statues of Abraham Lincoln be toppled in the name of “equality”. It is the furthest thing from “equitable” to destroy the nation that has done more to make liberty and self-determination available to all men and women than all the other efforts of people and governments combined. As a nation we have not achieved absolute perfection. We do not know the fruits of pure Utopia. But failing to recognize what we have achieved, and what we do know, simply because we haven’t yet reached the top of the mountain is both inane and hypocritical. I cannot comprehend how those who are being used as tools to spread this notion are unable to easily recognize their own shortcomings, most notably the ease with which they are manipulated and goaded into disseminating pure evil.
My wish for all Patriotic Americans on this, our glorious Independence Day, is that in our minds we destroy the “perfect image” of America so that the perfect ideal of America may yet flourish. If we can quickly adopt the understanding that imperfection is normal, we can then immediately dismiss all virtue-signalling that demands absolute perfection “or else”–and only by robbing the faux-virtuous of their perceived moral superiority can we starve their movement of what power it has to “cancel” this and “destroy” that. To save America the Great, we must sacrifice America the Perfect. Which is to say that to have any chance of ever achieving America the Perfect, we must actively embrace America the Imperfect.
