FFQF: Does One Size Fit All?

Welcome back, and well-done post. The only comment I could add is something that many seem to forget today: Many American political freedoms exist because they were a part of our historical background. Successful political freedoms do not thrive in regions where there is no or little historical basis to draw on... it's alien to them. With the exception of Japan in 1945 - are there many countries where we tried to incorporate 'democracy' and it took hold and became an inherent practice of the people in a short time? We may have rebelled against England, but our government was founded in 150 years of quasi-democratic practice.

-Just a thought from someone ready to turn in for the night.

Hey Herc,

Have you seen this quote by Washington, at the least it shows he believed in Calvin's depravity of man:

"The blessed Religion revealed in the word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institutions may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances be made subservient to the vilest of purposes. Should, hereafter, those who are intrusted with the management of this government, incited by the lust of power & prompted by the supineness or venality of their Constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to shew, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction & sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable--and if I may so express myself, that no wall of words--that no mound of parchmt can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other. But [MHi: Waterston Papers]"

-First Inaugural Fragment in Washington's Handwriting.

Hey Herc,

My wife and I have did some brainstorming on Romans 13, I've also written a post on my blog; let me know what you think.

My view on "submission" may be changing to more of a calvinist interpretation, how about you?

Our right to vote and have our say is proof that one strict government is not best for all people. Even our state regulations vary, and cities have different ordinances based on the needs and practices of different people. The only thing that is universal and best for all is freedom to choose.
