The restoration of American culture

There is something going on in America today, something  unseen, unheard, and often unspoken.  It may be apparent to many of us, however it may not be obvious.  The people can tell something isn’t right.  The intangible concepts, principles, and ideals which paved the way for freedom in our land, have fallen victim to our modern culture.

A few years ago I remember being at a point of confusion and frustration in my life. I could tell something was drastically wrong, something just didn’t feel right. That lost feeling persisted for probably four years or so, until I realized that I didn’t know; what I didn’t know.  I then began to dig into information and knowledge about psychology, religion, politics, history, american history, economics, personal development, and leadership from some of the greatest minds in history.  During this  journey I discovered that I was lacking a significant understanding of what being an American actually was.

Being American used to convey many ideas. One example is that to be an “American” relayed the idea that an American believed there was a higher power and there was a greater purpose for each individual. Americans lived their lives in a way which entrenched this idea throughout their entire life.  In the founding documents the founders used the word “providence” (God conceived as the power sustaining and guiding human destiny). At the time of the writing of those documents there were over 1400 different forms of Christianity.  They understood that their writings had to be written in such a way, where they could be understood by many types of religion. They believed so strongly in freedom and liberty that they were willing to sacrifice their lives to protect these beliefs. In fact Thomas Jefferson lost his wife and son while he was signing his name on the founding documents.

The founding fathers fought passionately for the ideas they believed would keep our country free and prosperous. They studied the history of world governments.  There were many heated debates between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton about what type of society america would be.  They both agreed on a commercial society which is defined as a society that promotes the basic needs of the people and to have the opportunity to create wealth and prosperity(the american dream).  Hamilton wanted an industrial type of commercial society, where there would  be big organizations that everyone would work for to create huge wealth together. This would create a nation of dependents, who were dependent upon the existence of these organizations.  Jefferson wanted a nation of independents, small shop owners, farmers, land owners, and business men. This idea would carry more freedom and a better opportunity for an individual to earn his own definition of wealth dependent only upon his own efforts.   This is how America coined such maxims as  “the American dream” and “the Land of Opportunity”. As a nation comprised of independents will be a nation of independence.

The idea of a nation of independents flourished as majority of  Americans were mostly farmers and small shop owners until the 20th century. In the 20th century  our culture began to develop into an industrial society, where large companies began to employ many people. Many american began to come into town  from the fields and started working in factories.  This industrial revolution gave birth to the very ideas which Jefferson diligently attempted to protect society from. Hamilton’s ideas were now becoming dominant.  Soon the 16th and 17th amendments were passed. These amendments furthered Hamilton’s ideas of a top heavy system of people dependent on someone else for their economic prosperity, creating a nation of dependents.

For most of us, we have just followed the status quo of going to school, getting good grades, and attempting to get a safe secure job with great benefits and a retirement plan.  Not completely understanding how this would end up defining our life, our time, our loved ones,  our freedom, and how it takes so much influence away from our country. Freedom is our most important American ideal, without it we may as well change the name of  our country. For the very principle which America stood for is now in violation. A hypocrisy of American culture is upon us.

To achieve a restoration of American culture, we must restore Jefferson’s ideas which promote freedom and prosperity. In order to do this we must create a new revolution. A revolution where entrepreneurship becomes as American as the very idea which brought our people here in the first place. There are many affordable business opportunities for the masses. I recommend researching home-based business’. As there are many opportunities where you can begin to be rewarded based on your own performance. You can build your business part time which greatly minimizes the risks involved with conventional business’ or franchises.  Several home-based business’ can be started with a few hundred dollars. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

I am quite biased however, as I own an independent home based business: the-life-business.com  We specialize in an affordable education of timeless principles of  personal development and leadership. With a primary focus on educating in the eight most important areas of life; Family, Faith, Freedom, Finance, Fitness, Following,  Friendship, and Fun.  Our main purpose is to assist individuals in the creation of a profitable home-based business. Our product is your improved life!  We are paying people to learn about and to promote FREEDOM!  This will create a ripple affect of freedom and prosperity which we hope will bring a much need freedomshift to our great country.

I encourage all of you to study in depth the ideas of America and to create your freedom. I enjoy the writings of Oliver DeMille. his titles include; A Thomas Jefferson Education, The coming aristocracy, Freedom shift, and soon he will be releasing a new book outlining the devastating effects from the forceshift of 1913.

I hope and challenge you to become an advocate for the restoration of American culture.  Develop your skills, become a leader and get active in your community.  Its our turn to protect America;  from the inside. We are responsible to ensure the sanctity of America for our children and grandchildren. Together we will make a difference and change the tide of our culture.

God bless
