Transcript eeFor THE FAITH OF OUR FATHERS By GRAHAM PATTERSON Publisher, Tonti Journal With thk world divided as it is today into two armed camps, maintaining an uneasy peace, our own greal strength, economic, military and spiritual, that makes us the bastion of the free world, also pinpoint- the tremendous difference between our way of life and that under a totalitarian state. Our own freedom should prove a shining star of hope to the hundreds of millions of oppressed people suffering under the Communisl yoke. It holds a promise- iheil some ileiv they. too. may achieve their freedom as our forefathers did. When the thirteen impoverished American colonies finally won llieir freedom eis ei sovereign nation, after long years of struggle, privation and hardships, it weis an event of history- shaking proportions. Oilier nations before us had fought for and won their independence, 1ml nowhere in eill the pages of history heul there been ei neitiun founded upon thr ideals our Founding Fathers established. Never before heul there been leiid down the principles thai our Declaration ol Independence and Hill of Rights boldly set forth. In other lands, even in thr England from which we gained our liberty, there was no reed freedom except for ei favored few. Hui ihe brave emd far-sighted patriots who dared death by putting their signature- on ihe Declaration of Independence boldly gave the world a new emd exciting idea lo think about—a philosophy iheil held theit "all men are created equal" and are ""endowed by their Creator wilh certain unalienable rights, thai among these ein- Life, Liberty ami ih, Pursuit of Happiness. ll weis not jusl freedom as a nation for which the Minnie Men fought al Lexington, for which George Washington and his army suffered through a terrible winter eil Valley Forge; it was for a in ils fullest, richest meaning. A new kind of nation in which the individual would have Freedom to worship as he (hose, freedom to voice his opinion without fear of arrest. A new kind of nation in which the individual citizen would have the right to enjoy the fruits of his labors, one in which he could hope In rise lo any heights he chose, no matter how humble the station to which he was horn. The Declaration of Independence meide' the government the servant instead of the master, ll weis Benjamin Franklin who said "He who sheill introduce into puhlie affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will revolutionize the world." Franklin's words were justified by llu1 amazing developmenl of lhat group of weak little states into iln- richest, mosl powerful nation in lhe- world, with the highest standard of living ever enjoyed hv emv country. Our system of "capitalism" or "free enterprise"- call it what you will—pro- vides whal everybody must have' for economic progress: incentive. As a resull. wilh only 1 Kith of the world's people, ihis country produces one-third of llie- world's goods and almost one-half of all its manufactured products! How differenl is lhe record of communism, under which lhe governmenl is lhe master instead of servant and the individual an automaton insieeiel of an individual. After thirty years of "the worker's Utopia," the Russian worker has less freedom and less of the world's goods lliein hi' heul under lhe Czars. He is denied lhe freedom lo speak or even think as he wishes. He must work where hi' i- told, l"i' ee- long ei- lie is told. He musl not complain, under the threat of arrest, torture eunl prison—even execution. \\ i' should thank Cod for the foresight eunl wisdom of our Founding Fathers and their failh theit ei genuinely free man kind of neitiun in which the with trust and feiilli [dividual citizen would enjoy freedom ei better man.
