–By Ben Gilmore
I believe it is a law of nature.
As the quality if a person’s Internal Self-Government decreases External Government of Self will ALWAYS increase.
This is as true for a family, a church, or civil government as it is for an individual person.
The solution is obvious, but not easily applied:
INCREASE THE QUALITY OF INTERNAL SELF-GOVERNMENT.
Brittney Deoliveira (16) one of our ACH students was next to last of a dozen plus, speakers at a Tea Party Rally in Florida. The other speakers spoke of the problem of “Big Government”. This teen spoke of the cause of the problem and pointed to the solution: (edited for brevity)
“I had the honor to speak at the Fort Lauderdale Tax Day Tea Party. I had a three minute allotted speaking time, I was able to choose one principle of the seven that Mr. Gilmore teaches. I focused in on what I believe is the root cause of America’s “big government” – our lack of self-government.
“For generations Americans have been dumbed down and indoctrinated with lies. Unless we change it and become reeducated with the importance of this nation’s founding principles and educate others about them and reincorporate them in our daily thoughts and actions, America will no longer stand. As the people go, so goes the nation.
“Yes, in America we have rights, but as citizens we also have duties. It is our duty to stand up for these seven principles that are paramount for reclaiming America for what it once was.”
