Equality is a word that receives much use and applause these days. It is a perfectly good word, with a very fine meaning. The founding colonists of New England had use of equality, they strove to have “equality under the law” in the little republics they created. Today many of the people in charge of our Federal government, and in other institutions such as the media, don’t want equality under the law. These people, who are openly hostile to the historic American nation and complicit in the destruction of it’s monuments, instead want “equality by the law”.
The popular word “Equality” is still used, but they mean something much more nefarious by their use of it. Equality by the law is their desire to mandate equality amongst all individuals and by all measures. Equality between the genders, races, moralities, sexes, ideologies, at least this is what is stated, but in order to make it a reality some groups are deemed more equal than others. Women are deemed more equal than men when it comes to pushing them into traditionally male roles such as the: military, law enforcement, construction, and engineering. Blacks are deemed more equal than Whites when it comes to just about everything whether college admissions, job quotas, or even government assistance programs.
As the Federal Government is further placed into the hands of people such as Attorney General-nominee Merrick Garland, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Neera Tanden (chosen to lead the Office of Management and Budget) the idea of equality will be tilted further and further away from the concept as our ancestors would’ve understood it. Each of these three people have highlighted their recent immigrant roots and how that makes them somehow more “American” than the Native American’s (no not Indians, but the people who founded and built America).
Our ancestors did not build this country for the inhabitants of the world, but for their posterity. As Teddy Roosevelt, a President who traced his ancestry to Colonial New England, Dutch, and Southern roots said “This is a nation — not a polyglot boarding house.” The current occupants of Washington D.C. would turn this phrase on it’s head.
Continue to persevere, make sacrifices for your ancestors, your people, and your posterity.
“Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods”
-Thomas Babington Macaulay, Lays of Ancient Rome
