In this short Pat Condell YouTube video he laments how social media has become the authors of the “Anti-American Dream.” Condell writes:
The quickest way to create a captive society is to educate children to hate their own freedom. Nobody’s feelings were consulted during the making of this video. Anyone who has a problem with that can drop dead.
Benjamin Franklin, upon exiting at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation, was asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin responded, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
The dream of our Founding Fathers was to have limited government and to place the power of self-governance upon a moral people. Moral people do not need laws because they do the right thing without being told to do so.
Freedom does not mean doing whatever makes you fell good. Freedom means doing what is morally right. Maybe the social media giants would learn what freedom of speech means if they read the Bible and the U.S. Constitution?
