Humanity’s Ageless Struggle… What Is a Person Worth?

Reprinted to Liberty Sentinel with full permission of authors.

Beneath the surface of the oppressive COVID-19 “public health” policies and practices, another phase in the great human struggle emerged and continues to afflict us now. The struggle is nearing the tipping point that could set back humanity to something more dismal and unending than the Dark Ages.

The struggle grows from two distinct and competing answers to the questions, “What is a human being, and what value does each one have?”

The View that We Are Beings with Inherent and Inviolable Worth

One view says that humans are indeed “beings.” This means they are fundamentally spiritual in nature and, as individuals, possess inherent and inviolable worth. From this essential worth grows their right to take responsibility for themselves in making the most they can out of life while recognizing and promoting the equal inherent and inviolable value of all humans.

This view is inherent in our biological and social relations. It begins with the love of parents for their children and the love of individual adults for each other. The great strength of humans is rooted in this mutual concern for each other. From earliest times, humans were bound together in extended families that hunted and gathered together and who, together, survived and triumphed over the challenges of life within nature.

However, it took religion to enable humans to see beyond their extended families to believe that all human beings have inherent and inviolable worth. The concept begins to unfold in the Hebrew Bible with the concept that humans are made in the image of God and should treat each other with universal ethics and laws, beginning with the Ten Commandments, and the rudiments of what will become the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you. It flowers in the New Testament with the more explicit declaration of the Golden Rule and then the concept — the incredible ideal — that we humans should love one another as God loves us.

This Judeo-Christian inheritance led the Founders of this nation in 1776 to write and sign the Declaration of Independence, finding in God our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. With the ratification of the Constitution in 1789 and the Bill of Rights in 1791, the United States of America came fully into being — the first government ever created for the preservation and advancement of the individual freedom of its citizens. To say that these principles have made America “exceptional” hardly captures the reality that no other nation in history had ever created a government based on the inviolability of individual human rights as expressed in its founding documents.

The War of Independence was essentially a conservative revolution, and it led to a conservative Constitution aimed at implementing the rights that colonists largely enjoyed before King George began taxing them without representation and then sent his troops to enforce submission to his will.

The View that We Are Not Beings with Inviolable and Inherent Worth

The view that we are not beings with inherent and inviolable value has pervaded humanity from early on, at least when dealing with strangers to the extended family band, the tribe, the village, or the city. To this day, whenever humans label other humans as strangers of one kind or another, they tend to make themselves into perpetrators able to treat others with callous indifference, if not outright hostility and violence.

For many centuries, the leaders of nations and empires considered themselves to be chosen by God or to be gods themselves, elevating themselves above their own people. This enabled them to treat those under their rule as serfs or slaves.

The definitions of stranger or “the other” vary greatly and can take almost any imaginable shape or form. It may be another race, the other sex or a different sexual orientation, children, old people, mental patients, prisoners, a lower caste, slaves, another nationality or religion, foreigners and immigrants, a different political ideology, a different social or economic class (e.g., the bourgeois or the peasants), and progressives with conflicting views — whatever label it takes to create sufficient separation from “the other” or “the stranger” to justify callous indifference, abuse, hatred, control, and violence.

The American Versus the French Revolution

In 1789, the year in which the U.S. Constitution was signed, the French Revolution began. There is a great deal of confusion concerning the nature of the two revolutions. Friedrich Gentz (1764-1832), a European politician, authored a small book distinguishing the two revolutions from each other, titled The Origins and Principles of the American Revolution Compared with the Origin and Principles of the French Revolution.1 John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States, thought so much of Gentz’s book that he translated it into English (circa 1800) and had it published in America. It is one of the most important and enlightening books I have ever read. It sets the stage for understanding today’s global predators.

According to Gentz:

The French revolution, therefore, began by a viola­tion of rights, every step of its progress was a violation of rights, and it was never easy, until it had succeeded to establish absolute wrong, as the supreme and acknowledged maxim of a state completely dissolved,· and yet existing only in bloody ruins.

The American revolution was from beginning to end, on the part of the Americans, merely a defensive revolution; the French was from beginning to end, in the highest sense of the word, an offensive revolution.

This difference of itself is essential and decisive; upon it rests, perhaps more than upon any other, the peculiar character, which has distinguished these two revolutions. The French revolution, therefore, began by a violation of rights, every step of its progress was a violation of rights, and it was never easy, until it had succeeded to establish absolute wrong, as the supreme and acknowledged maxim of a state completely dissolved,· and yet existing only in bloody ruins.2

Today we have the same battle today between the weakened constitutional democracies and the onslaught of global governance and the Great Reset or New World Order. We are fighting a defense revolution against those who would take away our rights. We are echoing the same principles that brought about the War of Independence from the British Empire. We are fighting the progressives at home who are allied with the global predatory empires of the world.

Gentz does not use the modern word “globalist,” but he makes clear that the French Revolution and the subsequent attempt to dominate Europe and eventually dominate humanity. Like most violent revolutions built on utterly destroying the old and bringing in the new, according to Gentz, there could be no end to the violence “until they should have led the principles of the revolution in triumph over the whole civilized world…3 

The French Revolution, like all progressive, globalist revolutions, was extremely violent, murdering many of its own people, while the American Revolution did not result in the American revolutionaries slaughtering their own opposing citizens.   

The French Revolution began as a radical and destructive series of events in which ruthless men played god, murdering untold millions and wrecking societies and economies throughout Europe. Monarchists, priests, religious people, landowners, businesspeople, and real or imagined dissenters against the prevailing tyranny were slaughtered. Only the new elite was supposed to triumph.

The chaos and destruction eventually led to Emperor Napoleon and the building of one more bloody empire from 1803 to the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815. It also established the precedent of slaughtering and enslaving people in the name of human rights — “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.” It should sound eerily familiar to the call current for equity and justice, which doesn’t even deign to mention liberty.

Slaughtering in the name of liberty became a strategy that Marx inflicted on the “bourgeoisie” in the Communist Manifesto in 1848 and which continues to this day in progressivism in the U.S. and throughout the world. In Marxist and now progressive theory, there is no room for free will or independent thought. With the exception of a few self-appointed elite Marxist intellectuals, all of humanity is driven by economic forces that create class struggle, and must ultimately end in the establishment of a utopian socialism.

The only real purpose of humans in the Marxist and modern progressive ideology is to hurry along that process toward a utopian socialist state dictatorship without regard for the cost of human suffering and human life. All ethics are bent to the purpose, and the end justifies the means. In modern times, Lenin and Stalin, Hitler, Castro, Mao, and Xi Jinping, have all acted on the conviction that individual human beings possess no inviolable and inherent worth. To this day — from Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab to Tedros and Xi Jinping — the global predators do not believe in God or any other value that would give worth to all individual people and limit their own predatory power over them.

COVID-19 and Progressivism

In progressive America today, the stranger and the “other” have become conservatives, God-based Jews and Christians, white people, white men, the privileged — anyone that can be remotely associated in someone’s mind with the old power structure that must be destroyed. It is the French Revolution gone global. In contrast to the American War of Independence, it will be extremely and indiscriminately violent, and it ends very badly for more than 99% of Americans and eventually for the whole world. Once again, an elite will rule, much as they have done in centuries past and much as they are avidly working toward under their puppet, Joe Biden.

In addition to attacking the “old regime,” progressives are attempting to divide their own followers into various competing groups, disempowering them and rendering them easier to control. In perhaps the least racist nation in the world — one that recently elected a black president, Barack Obama — everyone who is white is labeled racist.

Ultimately, all the divisive themes become “justice” issues, and hateful socialist ideology takes over, with all the woes that it has always brought down on humanity since its early “glory” in the French Revolution. The aim of fractionating people into multiple victim groups competing for attention is to enlarge their socialist base while disempowering their own constituents, giving those elites in charge an iron fist.

COVID-19 and the Global Predators

All totalitarian movements identify outside sources against which the population must unite under a dictator. Most recently, the danger has become COVID-19, which has been used to demand obedience and conformity. It has led to the intentional crushing of Western societies and individual citizens. It is used to justify massive censorship of alternative views, even threatening and punishing physicians who offer genuinely effective treatments such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin that could have saved millions of lives and could still do so. COVID-19 is ultimately about using genetically engineered bioweapons — the so-called COVID vaccines — to enhance the power, glory, and wealth of the elite.

Now COVID-19 has become another source of identifying the “other” — the unvaccinated and all those who oppose the official narrative. But in reality, this is just another attack on that concept of the “old guard” made up of conservatives, patriots, individualists, and God-based people who make up most of those taking a stand against this so-called vaccination and the loss of freedom it has justified.

The unvaccinated are standing up for liberty and also against the creation of GMO human beings by means of injections of mRNA and DNA. COVID-19 predators are closely allied with Great Reset advocates, with the overall goal of forcing humans to accept becoming GMO — Genetically Modified Organisms. All this is tied together in our book, COVID-19 and the Global Predators, by Peter and Ginger Breggin.4

Confronting COVID-19 Totalitarianism

In our book, COVID-19 and the Global Predators, we dig deeply to discover who is actually behind this latest assault on individuality and political freedom. It is a seemingly strange mix of global predators that includes billionaires, progressive political leaders, wealthy and powerful industries, and to our shock, the Chinese Communist Party.

It is possible to make sense out of this seemingly diverse assault on humanity. Underlying the coalition among global predators is that ageless assault on the most beautiful and liberating concept that humans have ever created or received from God — that we are, each and every one of us, treasures with inherent worth and inviolable rights, including property, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  

No human being should ever be required to submit to being treated as a non-human being. There can be no legitimate religion, philosophy, legislation, judicial opinion, law, or edict that legitimately makes any of us forfeit our inherent worth as human beings and our right to be free to make what we can of our own lives. We stand united with millions of Americans and millions more throughout the world to declare that “We are human beings and will not be denied our individual value and our freedom.”
