Constitution Day: The Pre-Civil War Constitution Served Us Well

Clusivius:

Clusivius-sqAdam Grey at Faith and Heritage points out that the U.S. constitution was a wise and impressive document when it applied to semi-sovereign states and when moral, Christian white men served to uphold it.

For centuries Western European men have organized themselves on as voluntary a basis as possible.  Not all voluntary associations or measures of equality are inherently moral or wise, for sure.  The post-WWII American and European experiment has proven that beyond a doubt.

Yet not all voluntary associations or measures of equality are inherently immoral or unwise, either.  America’s Founding Fathers believed, on the one hand, that “all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” and on the other hand, that Negroes, Indians, and women were not included in that statement of who was equal, or capable of rightly possessing and using certain rights.

Today, September 17, is Constitution Day in the United States.  It is the annual remembrance of the day that the Framers of the Constitution approved the final draft of the document at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

As we discussed in a recent AM Grey podcast, many of the post-Civil War amendments to the Constitution, and nearly all of the important post-Civil War Supreme Court subversions and perversions of the Constitution, are abominable. But the original document itself was remarkable and still deserves our praise.

At heart I still love limited government and individual liberty.

But those ideals simply do not work in a multi-racial society overwhelmed with self-absorbed freeloaders and degenerates. The American Founders knew that, of course.

Today’s Constitution Day is more appropriately a type of Memorial Day or Remembrance Day, a day of lamentation for what Americans have lost.

One day, perhaps, after the dust has settled, white nations will survive in America who can restore individual liberty and limited government run by free and honorable men for the benefit of their posterity.

But, oh, how the blood must flow between now and then!
