WE WHO LIVE IN THIS LAND SO BLESSED WITH LIBERTY AND PROSPERITY are much too likely to take for granted these conditions, giving no thought to the reasons why they exist. We have inherited them, without doing anything on our part to create them or even preserve them, so we place far too low a value on them. We do not. think about how our ancestors won them at the cost of their blood: we have even allowed sinister forces to bar out of our schools most of the teachings which, would tell our children how these things came to be — because it would “discriminate” against the Asiatics and Africans who never had (or wanted) such institutions, and it would build up in the children a patriotism which would make it harder to brainwash them into the kind of robots who will make good slaves of a world government.
The great ideals upon which our nation was built are no accident: neither are they just the work of men who created them out of nothing. They are our heritage from our remote past, from ancient ancestors who’ were taught-them by the word of God. They are but a part of a far greater plan of racial and national life drawn up for us by our God, and set forth in the Bible. Liberty and prosperity are not causes: they are results: and you cannot long have either one, unless you keep the righteousness which is the only cause capable of producing them. Whenever we have forgotten this, we have soon lost our blessings.
