History of America

"Beholding the Ruins of a Once Great Civilization"

"I went into the churches of American and saw pulpits aflame with righteousness..." Alexis d'Tocquville, Democracy in America, 1840 The experience that we had in this common course...tried sundry years...that by taking away property and bringing the community into common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing- as if they were wiser than God. For this "community" was found to breed much confusion and retard employment." William Bradford, Governor of Plymouth colony, Massachusetts, 1645 There is a 'liberty' of corrupt nature....'tis the enemy of truth and peace, and all the ordinances of God are bent against it"- John Winthrop, Governor of Massachusetts, 1645 "To George Washington, the Joshua of America...who commanded thesun and the moon to be still...and they obeyed." -Benjamin Franklin's toast to the Treaty of Paris, 1783

There were once ideas and ideals commonly practiced by Americans…but no longer understood today.


Christian Self-governance

Because the American could regulate his tastes, he could also better regulate his opinions.

“In Europe, almost all the disorders of society are born around the domestic hearth and not far from the nuptial bed. It is there that men come to feel scorn for natural ties and legitimate pleasures and develop a taste for disorder, restlessness of spirit, and instability of desires. Shaken by the tumultuous passions which have often troubled his own house, the European finds it hard to submit to the authority of the state’s legislators.

When the American returns from the turmoil of politics to the bosom of the family, he immediately finds a perfect picture of order and peace. There all his pleasures are simple and natural and his joys innocent and quiet, and as the regularity of life brings him happiness, he easily forms the habit of regulating his opinions as well as his tastes.” – Alexis D’Tocqueville, 1840, Democracy in America
