With Liberty and Justice–in Free Fall
In the same manner that faith-based music often ends with a major chord showing completeness and hope in Christ, the Pledge of Allegiance, based on the 5,000 year leap of civil polity found in the United Sates of America, concludes on this triumphant note:
“With liberty and justice for all.”
History had never seen such a government designed for righteous and egalitarian purposes. Despots and strong men ruled the world for millennia. The U.S. shattered that status quo in 1776 and has since led the world in pursuit of freedom and justice.
The two pillars of a free society to which our children pledge their loyalty are teetering. Liberty and justice are in free fall.
