Happy Independence Day!

by Jason Stotts

I want to wish all of the readers of Erosophia a happy Independence Day!

I think it is important today to reflect on the reasons why America is great and for what reasons our founding fathers risked their lives, freedom, and property to rebel against England.

It was certainly not because they wanted to rule, nor did they want to create some kind of Utopian society of “equals.” No, these great men had but one thing in mind for their rebellion: freedom.

They wanted the freedom to pursue their own happiness as they saw fit, they wanted the right to their own lives.

I think it is important to reflect on these things and the stark contrast they provide with the current state of our country that wants to shackle all to all, with liberty for none. After all, if we are all equally slaves, aren’t we finally equal?
