    (True Patriotism Versus
    False Nationalism)

    The Declaration of Independence gives us the true meaning of a patriot, someone who supports a country’s ideals, not necessarily its government.

    In celebration of the Fourth of July there will be many speeches about the young people who “died for their country.” But those who gave their lives did not, as they were led to believe, die for their country; they died for their government. The distinction between country and government is at the heart of the Declaration of Independence, which will be referred to again and again on July 4, but without attention to its meaning.

    The Declaration of Independence is the fundamental document of democracy. It says governments are artificial creations, established by the people, “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” and charged by the people to ensure the equal right of all to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Furthermore, as the Declaration says, “whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” It is the country that is primary—the people, the ideals of the sanctity of human life and the promotion of liberty.

    When a government recklessly expends the lives of its young for crass motives of profit and power, while claiming that its motives are pure and moral, (“Operation Just Cause” was the invasion of Panama and “Operation Iraqi Freedom” in the present instance), it is violating its promise to the country. War is almost always a breaking of that promise. It does not enable the pursuit of happiness but brings despair and grief.

    Mark Twain, having been called a “traitor” for criticizing the U.S. invasion of the Philippines, derided what he called “monarchical patriotism.” He said: “The gospel of the monarchical patriotism is: ‘The King can do no wrong.’ We have adopted it with all its servility, with an unimportant change in the wording: ‘Our country, right or wrong!’ We have thrown away the most valuable asset we had — the individual’s right to oppose both flag and country when he believed them to be in the wrong. We have thrown it away; and with it, all that was really respectable about that grotesque and laughable word, Patriotism.”

    Veterans for Peace has drafted a Declaration of Impeachment using nothing but excerpts from the Declaration of Independence (plus a few words in parentheses). It reads as follows, and should be read at picnics and protests on the Fourth of July:

    “… (W)henever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [‘… that all (people) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these (Rights) are Life, LIBERTY and the pursuit of Happiness…, (and that) Governments are instituted among (the People), deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …’], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their [Liberty,] Safety and Happiness …

    “… (A)ll experience hath shewn, that (hu)mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations … design(s) to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security …

    “The history of the present King (George)… is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States [and the world]. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

  • [“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for public good (and Liberty). He has forbidden his (more independent Lawmakers) to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to (obey) them (or to give his Assent that he must obey them) …]

  • “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance …

  • “He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

  • [“He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of (false and fraudulent) Legislation: For quartering large bodies of armed troops (and domestic mercenaries) among us: For protecting them… from punishment for any Murders which they… commit on the Inhabitants of these States …]

  • “(He has) … deprive(ed) us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury … transport(ed) us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences … [taking away (recognition and observance of) our Charters (Treaties and International Laws), abolishing (or refusing to obey countless numbers of) our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Form(s) of our Government(s) …]

  • “He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us …

  • “He is at this time transporting large Armies … to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

  • “He has constrained our fellow Citizens … to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren [abroad], or to fall themselves by their Hands … [and excited (and provoked) domestic insurrections amongst us …]

For The Slaughtered Innocents

Are we really independent,
Or are we blindly believing
The lies being told us by warmongers
Lusting after death and destruction?

Is there autonomy between
What the lying politicians say
And the important truths we’re hopefully
Coming to learn about war versus peace?

Are we choosing life rather than death
Or are we ignorantly condoning murder,
Blindness not making us any less guilty
For our complicity in the endless slaughter?

Is there the seeking of separation
From the senseless, inhumane carnage,
And only standing for blessed peacemaking,
That mercy which glorifies humankind?

Are we the merciful who are the only ones’
God will have mercy upon in the very near future,
Instead of the unmerciful who will be condemned
As they themselves condemned the weak and innocent?

Where lay our true days of independence?
