the power of determinism, the strength of free will


After waiting a bit to hear of any objections, grandpa continued by saying,

“In a nation ruled by the concept of determinism only the powerful will succeed. In a nation ruled by the concept of free will only the strong will be successful. Power is attained by those who rule over others. Strength is attained when man rules only over himself. And with achievements the man who possesses power will grow even more powerful and the man who possesses strength will become even more stronger.

In a nation ruled by the concept of determinism only a few are seen as possessing the attribute of free will. And equality can only be achieved by denying these few men of the possession of free will. The problem lies in the perceived achievement of equality by the denial of these few men of power. Power does not cease to exist when there is denial of it. It is only transferred to those who denied it of others thus concentrating it among even fewer men. And a nation where power is concentrated is a nation weakened.

In a nation ruled by the concept of free will all men are seen as possessing this same attribute and equality already exists. And as each man becomes stronger as a result so do all men become stronger. And as men strengthen themselves so does a nation know its strength.

History testifies to these thoughts. For history will testify that the enslavement of men can only exist where power is concentrated among the few. History will testify that events like the Holocaust can only occur where power is concentrated among the few. History will testify that events such as the apartheid can only occur when power is concentrated among the few. History will testify that eventslike the interment of Japanese citizens can only occur when power is concentrated among the few. It is history that testifies to the success of individuals and to the failures of collectives.

It is men of strength that can resist the will of the powerful. For it is the strong man that believes that he and he alone is responsible for his life. With this in mind the individual seeks that only the opportunity of happiness be bestowed upon him. For he knows that the achievement of happiness cannot be given but must be earned and that only he can earn it. And for this he is considered an extremist.

Tis the mind of a weak man that feels the need of a collective to resist the will of the powerful. For it is the mind of a weak man who believes that the collective is responsible for the life of the individual. For it is the weak man who sees no opportunity for happiness for himself or for others. For him the achievement of happiness only occurs when it is taken from those who he feels already possess it. And to accomplish this he calls himself a radical.

It is the powerful that rule over men of weakness. It is men of weakness that fears this power therefore seeks to deny it. It is the weak man who envies that which he perceives gives men power and pities those who he perceives as being powerless. For it is the weak man who judges the accomplishments of others by the terms of his own weaknesses. Strength of character has no meaning for him.

It is the strong that rule over his own weaknesses. It is the strong who has no fear of power therefore does not seek to deny it. It is the strong that honors that which he knows gives men power and respects those who may be weaker than he is at any given moment. It is the strong man who judges the strength of others by their own accomplishments.

There is a direct inverse correlation between the possession of strength and the possession of power just as there is a direct inverse correlation between the possession of free will and the possession of that attribute of determination. And it is the test of character that reveals the attributes that each man possesses.

It is the strong man who welcomes each test of his character for he has faith that he will only be stronger if he passes even tho he understands that there is a risk of failure. It is the weak man that seeks to avoid any test of character for his fear of failure is greater than his hope of success.

It is the strong man who will seek to deny government of its power and authority over him. For it is the strong man that realizes that government is no protection against the powerful. And it is the strong man that knows that laws do not serve as protection of the minority but serves as an enabler of the weak to remain known as the weak and powerless.

It is a man of free will that knows he can change from what he is to what he can be. And it is from his strength of character that is the force of this capability. And with this change it is a man of free will that will know just how strong a man can be. It is a man who thinks that his life is determined that sees himself as being only what he is. And as he accepts this he demands that others also accept this. In other words he demands that others change what they are so that all are equal to him. And with this change the man of determinism will know just how powerful a man can be.

We began as a nation of States that united for the purpose of greater strength because the weaknesses that were exposed by the attainment of power. And it was by the very strength of the individual that brought about victory over this power. And with each generation this strength grew. The strength of a nation grew as the strength of the individual was passed down as an inheritance from father to son.

It was the recognition of a contract entered into by the free will of each State that was the foundational principle upon which brought unity of a nation. It was upon the code of “it is the means that must justify the end” that is the central principle upon we hung our hat of justice.

It is your choice, my friends, choose between strength and power, for yourself and for your nation. Choose between the laws of men and the natural laws of this existence.”
