Yes, Bill Denneen is right, we need to â€œrevolt.â€? However, his church-and-corporate target is wrong. Bill may know something about bugs, but he seems to know nothing about mankind or the history of the United States.
Americaâ€™s Declaration of Independence was founded on moral values of â€œLife, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happinessâ€? as given by our â€œCreatorâ€? (God). The Mayflower Compact established a body politic for the â€œGlory of God and advance of the Christian faith.â€?
George Washington, in establishing the code of conduct for the U.S. Army using â€œgeneral orders,â€? often asked for the blessings of God in those official orders.
In 1892, the Supreme Court acknowledged that the United States was a â€œChristian nation.â€?
Each session of Congress is opened in prayer, to God, by the Chaplain.
As part of the â€œrevolt,â€? I ask Bill to become an example for his teaching and move to a jungle where he can live in peace with the crocodiles, jaguars, typhoid, malaria, headhunters, pythons, and others who do not posses his detested â€œmoral values.â€? I have lived in such a place and vastly prefer the greatest country in the world, the result of moral values, individual, and corporate development guided by those values.
Since Bill bemoans the increase in life expectancy, perhaps he can help lower it via his personal human sacrifice to the â€œenvironment.â€?
