Who Are … “We the People”
By W J Anthony
Since most of “We the People” in “America” are descendents of the people of nations in other countries – especially those in Europe – many of the customs and organizations of those countries were adopted by the founders and leaders of American society.
Since we began to grow up as children, some customs of those cultures have been instilled in us to believe that truth and justice will triumph eventually – because our Government is “of the people, by the people and for the people” and it “shall not perish from the Earth”. Each of our erroneous beliefs has failed to permanently rule “we the people”.
The wars of empires eventually failed because their masters’ pride and greed stretched the empires’ powers of domination beyond the trust of the ignorance that holds people in subjugation by fear and violence. Empires limit the standard of living of their subjugated people, so as to consist only of the goods and services that are necessary to maximize the production of what feudal or slave laborers can accomplish.
Empires are destined to meet failure if their masters assume that their descendents will faithfully continue their dominant power, the threat and use of violence against any change.
The cousinship powers of European empires ruled humanity worldwide through the use of gunpowder and the violence that subjugated peoples. With gunpowder, the arrogant elite of Europe assumed that Europe’s empires were destined with a divine mission to persist in the successful domination of humanity.
Europe’s emperors also used religion to control the peoples of their colonies. The indoctrination of children and adults with the formalized ethics of submission as Christians, was expected to vanquish the aspirations of subjugated Christians to throw off the domination of Europe’s empires.
Certain Biblical seeds of truth, as stated by Christianity’s Jesus, were deliberately avoided to prevent the people of Europe and Europe’s colonies from understanding the advice of Jesus: “Seek the truth, and you shall find it, and the truth shall set you free.”
Truth instilled a conviction in some colonists to examine the self-evident truths expressed in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.
When the American Declaration of Independence was published, the European empires were in their bloom of prosperity and enrichment, due to the vast profit received from their colonies. Through their use of gunboat persuasion as their dominant form of diplomacy, the Empires of Europe extended their collection of colonies to most of the continents of the Earth. Governments, which had been established during previous ages, were soon forced by gunboats to yield to Europe’s forms of empire.
Europe’s pursuit of multiple empires was kindled by the claim of success by the British aristocracy, which claimed that the sun never sets on the British Empire. History registered it as true, but as an ultimate criminal indictment.
From that background, America emerged as the United States into the present day in history, when “We the People of the United States”, as well as people in all the former empires of Europe, are facing their economic and social decline as governments that are based on self-determination and as functional nations with legitimate international influence. Based on our ethics, wars accompanied the rise of Europe and America; wars deceived us as a People and as nations, shaping US to serve money as our master.
Did Christianity’s Jesus teach US and Europe to assume that our wars and schemes of conquest could be forgiven after we achieve victory?
Do We the People understand the Biblical meaning in Matthew 6: 24 when Jesus said: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one; and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
The apostle Luke quotes Jesus as saying the same thing, in Luke 16:13.
What is mammon? Wealth, riches, money? If we love wealth, riches and money, what would we serve and what would we hate and despise?
Who and what did “We the People” serve in the 200 years of US history? Was it God or mammon? Who and what do we serve at the present time?
Who and what did the People in the countries of Europe serve in their two thousand years of war? What can we do to build or destroy the works of creation that feed and improve our lives and those of our descendents?
Why is China prospering while “We the People” – the heirs of Europe – are losing our standard of living? What provides an appropriate standard of living for all People throughout the world?
It is self-evident that our standard of living is determined by the cooperation and labor of humans, using resources to provide the means by which people can produce and distribute the goods and services that comprise an appropriate and accessible standard of living for each of US – the People.
Thievery and wars do not, and can not successfully guide and influence the cooperation of the human efforts that are necessary to accomplish the abundant production of goods and services that each of us, humans, need to pursue our unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and our pursuit of Happiness.
That sounds like the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. It was what. Ho Chi Minh of Vietnam discovered when he worked as a laborer in New York during his early years as a young man. In fact, he was so impressed with the meaning of the words, that he incorporated the words of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence into the Constitution of the Government of North Vietnam. Why, then, did the US Government choose to destroy the nation of Vietnam when Ho Chi Minh was its leader?
During America’s 20 years of total war against Vietnam, which killed millions of Vietnamese people and caused the deaths of many thousands of American servicemen and thousands of wounded American servicemen … Why did we go to War?
Was the war intended to enable America’s Government to secure the unalienable rights of American people or the unalienable rights of the People of Vietnam? Did the war and murder in Vietnam accomplish that?
Does the Declaration’s second paragraph say: “That to secure these rights (to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness) Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
“Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, 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 safety an happiness.”
Did America have the right to alter or to abolish other Governments? … such as the Government in Vietnam?
Did – We the People of the USA – treat Vietnam as if it should be our colony? Did We the People of the USA use our form of “gunboats” as our form of diplomacy to capture Vietnam as our colony?
Prior to Vietnam, how many People were killed and how many People suffered as slaves, in how many countries of the world, due to the brutal rulers of Europe’s colonial empires? … and in the colonies of the USA, such as Cuba, the five southern US states that were formerly part of Mexico, the Philippines, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, in South and central America, the Pacific trust territories and South Korea?
All of which brings US … We the People … born of revolution … to consider and compare the dramatic success of China today … also born of revolution … by We the People.

Subject: CHINA’S NEW BRIDGE-
Scary, isn’t it? I mean about China’s place in the world.
CHINA’S NEW BRIDGE
Has China’s engineering and architecture advanced past the US?
Imagine the mindset of those who worked on this BRIDGE at these heights
Note that the person below is 1102 feet above the ground and is sweeping the dirt off this twenty first century
Engineering marvel with a broom that was designed centuries ago and has no safety line.
Blasting and coating this steel superstructure in a couple of decades will be an interesting project.
Aizhai Bridge in Hunan province is 336 m (1,102 ft.) high and has a 1,176 m (3,858 ft.) span.
It connects two traffic tunnels in the mountains, cutting the time needed to traverse the canyon
From 30 minutes to 1 minute. Construction took five years.
Work finished at the end of last year, making it the world’s longest and highest suspension bridge.
A brave worker put the final touches on the Anzhaite Bridge . The bridge, which connects to two tunnels,
Was built to ease traffic. People and traffic during the Opening ceremony. Vehicles motor along a two-way,
four-lane motorway. Pedestrians walk along it on a special walkway under the road.
This article, though aimed at a US audience, gives a scary insight into China’s growing economic power.
A Little Known Reality.

In future China will employ millions of American workers and dominate thousands of small communities all
Over the United States. Chinese acquisition of U.S. Businesses set a new all-time record last year, and it is
On pace to shatter that record this year.
The Smithfield Foods acquisition is an example. Smithfield Foods is the largest pork producer and processor
In the world. It has facilities in 26 U.S. States and it employs tens of thousands of Americans. It directly owns
460 farms and has contracts with approximately 2,100 others. But now a Chinese company has bought it for
$ 4.7 billion, and that means that the Chinese will now be the most important employer in dozens of rural
Communities all over America.
They are only just starting to exercise their economic muscle.
It is important to keep in mind that there is often not much of a difference between “the Chinese government”
And “Chinese corporations”. In 2011, 43 percent of all profits in China were produced by companies where the
Chinese government had a controlling interest in.
Chains in the United States. Now that Chinese company controls more movie ticket sales than anyone else in the world.
Established all over America. For example, Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc. Recently broke ground
On a $100 million plant in Thomasville, Alabama. Many of the residents of Thomasville, Alabama will be glad to have
Jobs, but it will also become yet another community that will now be heavily dependent on communist China.
And guess where else Chinese companies are putting down roots? Detroit. Chinese-owned companies are investing in
American businesses and new vehicle technology, selling everything from seat belts to shock absorbers in retail stores,
And hiring experienced engineers and designers in an effort to soak up the talent and expertise of domestic automakers
And their suppliers. If you recently purchased an “American-made” vehicle, there is a really good chance that it has a
Number of Chinese parts in it. Industry analysts are hard-pressed to put a number on the Chinese suppliers operating in
The United States.
China seems particularly interested in acquiring energy resources in the United States. For example, China is actually
Mining for coal in the mountains of Tennessee. Guizhou Gouchuang Energy Holdings Group spent 616 million dollars
To acquire Triple H Coal Co. In Jacksboro, Tennessee. At the time, that acquisition really didn’t make much news, but now
A group of conservatives in Tennessee is trying to stop the Chinese from blowing up their mountains and taking their coal.
Right now China is actually building a city larger than Manhattan just outside Minsk, the capital of Belarus.
Are you starting to get the picture? China is on the rise. If you doubt this, just read the following:
# When you total up all imports and exports, China is now the number one trading nation on the entire planet.
# Overall, the U.S. has run a trade deficit with China over the past decade that comes to more than 2.3 trillion dollars.
# China has more foreign currency reserves than anyone else on the planet.
# China now has the largest new car market in the entire world.
# China now produces more than twice as many automobiles as the United States does. After being bailed out by
U.S. taxpayers, GM is involved in 11 joint ventures with Chinese companies.
# China is the number one gold producer in the world.
# The uniforms for the U.S. Olympic team were made in China.
# 85% of all artificial Christmas trees the world over are made in China.
# The new World Trade Center tower in New York is going to include glass imported from China.
# China now consumes more energy than the United States does.
# China is now in aggregate the leading manufacturer of goods in the entire world.
# China uses more cement than the rest of the world combined.
# China is now the number one producer of wind and solar power on the entire globe.
# China produces 3 times as much coal and 11 times as much steel as the United States does.
# China produces more than 90 percent of the global supply of rare earth elements.
# China is now the number one supplier of components that are critical to the operation of any national defense system.
# In published scientific research articles China is expected to become number one in the world very shortly.
learn to speak Chinese. You are going to need it !
