1776 Commission

The Report of the 1776 Commission appointed by Donald Trump was released on 18 January and is a well written rebuttal to identity politics. Of course the usual left wing revisionist historians have come out against the report, but it fundamentally reflects the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Hopefully it will be widely read by the upcoming generations who are being fed a daily diet of fiction on the country’s foundation. If the Report leads to a more balanced view of the history of the United States – which is overwhelmingly positive with some rough edges – then it will have achieved much.

    Harmless report.
    The US needs to study its own history more.
    Example, the conventions that framed/shaped the constitution.
    Most Americans (probably most on the planet) will need to wait for a Netflix series describing everything that went on in every ugly detail.

    You’re a thick bastard,LQC, dribbling on about stuff easily suppressed and won’t for a second impact the continued brainwashing and tyrannical control that is only now, starting to really bump up in the wake of idiots like you being against the last guy fighting it.
    So you want Trump gone and cling to this?
    Insanity.

    Thanks Lucius, at a glance, a brilliant piece of work.

    That is the kind of thing that the Claremont Institute produces, a site that I only recently discovered, very good but one of the many good sites that there is not enough time to follow.

    https://www.claremont.org/page/claremonts-mission/

    As Struth suggested, this fine document, like the magisterial 700 page The Open Society and Its Enemies, will not have the immediate impact on public opinion that we would like to exert:)

    Politically charging the historical fact of slavery will prevent people looking at with an unbiased eye.

    Fact of the matter is that the US (or Europeans) should not be damned for ever having slaves. They should be praised for putting an end to it.

    Slavery was an institution that permeated all societies since time until recently. And while the US unfortunately had to resort to war to bring it to an end this also shows their resolution. Western countries then used their influence to eradicate the practice elsewhere.

    And there are still places that either still have slavery or would try to bring it back.

    As for the idea that slavery underwrote America’s wealth – well we need only look to see what the result of removing slavery was. Did the US decline or grow?

    This is something new that I’ve learnt today. The 3/5s thing was introduced by anti-slavers.

    The three-fifths compromise was proposed by an antislavery delegate to prevent the South from counting their slaves as whole persons for purposes of increasing their congressional representation. The so-called fugitive slave clause, perhaps the most hated protection of all, accommodated pro-slavery delegates but was written so that the Constitution did not sanction slavery in the states where it existed. There is also the provision in the Constitution that forbade any restriction of the slave trade for twenty years after ratification—at which time Congress immediately outlawed the slave trade.

    JC,
    In his book, ‘Black Rednecks and White Liberals’, Thomas Sowell has an entire Chapter titled The Real History of Slavery.

    Well worth reading. Some breathtaking facts, which are not readily taught, including your point above.

    Being a Conservative i do not like armed revolutions. I think the US is lucky their revolution worked

    Also it is not as simple as US people think. The British had 26 colonies in North America. There were 16 on the mainland and 10 in the Caribbean. It was the war itself which decided the current borders of the USA.

    There were some loyalists. Some 80,000 left the rebellious colonies and moved north. And together with Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland eventually formed a new country called Canada. If there were no loyalists Canada would not exist.

    This is something new that I’ve learnt today. The 3/5s thing was introduced by anti-slavers.

    Parallels with the “flora and fauna” myth which was basically introduced so “wild” Aboriginals werent included in counts for political reasons related to the number of seats etc a state could have.

    Reasoning is plain enough to see.

  16. Mother Lode says:

    I think the US is lucky their revolution worked

    It helped that their leaders were steeped in the enlightenment, and the fact that the trappings and hierarchy of imperial rule was largely absent. Most revolutions end up with some of the ‘oppressed’ just taking over the roles of those they depose, but in the fledgling USA there was no king, the land was not locked up in grand estates, etc. Other revolutions are encompass the capital.

    Most revolutions are, as Yeats put it:

    HURRAH for revolution and more cannon-shot!
    A beggar upon horseback lashes a beggar on foot.
    Hurrah for revolution and cannon come again!
    The beggars have changed places, but the lash goes on.

    And the people who were in America had a pioneering spirit that does not sit easily rigid settled nations.

  17. Rafe Champion says:

    The first links in the slave trade chain were African tribes that kidnapped consignments of other tribes to sell to the white slavers.
    The slave trade is booming in Africa and the ME at present but it would be Islamophobic to object.

  18. Mother Lode says:

    Parallels with the “flora and fauna” myth

    It is very telling that they have to make up crimes and indignities they were subject to, instead of citing real ones.

  20. Noddy says:

    The ‘revolutions’ in The New World were inspired by European Bankers.
    The New World was experiencing freedom and wealth not shared in Europe and this had to be brought to an end. William Cobbett reported on the situation when he fled to America.
    It was not the Monarch but the willing ‘tools’ of the Bankers who financed the revolutions and wars – as they always have!

  21. Neil says:

    The irony is if not for Frencth intervention it probably wouldn’t have.

    Not only did the Revolutionaries get French help they also got Spanish help. Spain attacked Gibraltar during the Revolutionary War

    I must admit it is the Revolutionary War that causes me to be a little suspicious of the US. Britain got no loyalty from its colonies who had just had the French removed from North America by the Brits allowing them to expand westwards.

    Not content with recognition alone, the Noosa Temple of Satan is pushing to have Christian symbols removed from the center, labelling them “an affront to the religious freedoms of other people.”

    (links not repeated)

    And within these two posts we see the breathtaking level of hypocrisy of the anti-Christian “faiths.”

    First a “blow for religious freedom” but then an attack on the religious freedom of one particular religion.

    Yeah, right. Satanists: “shut up, you evil Christians!”

  23. Chris H. says:

    Can you re-post the link. It appears as though the new Ministry of Truth has removed the link. Unity!

    Amazing that it has now been disappeared.

    I’d also appreciate a link to the PDF.
