Are All Men Created Equal?

Where is the historic, scientific or empirical proof of the defining dogma of American democracy that “all men are created equal”?

Ideology is political religion, said the conservative sage Russell Kirk.

And what is the defining dogma of the political religion, or ideology, of America in 2022?

Is it not that, “All men are created equal”?

Yet, as with every religion, a basic question needs first to be asked and answered about this defining dogma of liberal ideology.

Is it true? Are all men truly created equal? Are all races and ethnic groups equal? Are men and women equal? Are all religions equal? Or do we simply agree to accept that as true — and treat them all equally?

All Americans, we agree, have the same God-given rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” the same constitutional rights in the Bill of Rights, and the same civil rights, enshrined in federal law.

But where is the historic, scientific or empirical proof of the defining dogma of American democracy that “all men are created equal”?

Thomas Jefferson, the statesman who immortalized the words, did not believe in equality, let alone equity. How he lived his life testifies to this disbelief.

When he wrote the Declaration of Independence that contained the famous words, Jefferson was a slave owner. In that document, he speaks of the British as “brethren” connected to us by “ties of our common kindred,” ties of blood.

But not all of those fighting against us were the equals of the British.

There were, Jefferson wrote, those “merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

In an 1815 letter to John Adams, Jefferson celebrated “a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents. … The natural aristocracy I consider as the most precious gift of nature for the instruction, the trusts, and government of society.”

Jefferson was an aristocrat, not a democrat.

Abraham Lincoln opposed slavery but did not believe in racial or social equality. Though he cited Jefferson’s “all men are created equal” at Gettysburg, he had conceded in an 1858 debate with Stephen Douglas that, “We cannot, then, make them equals,” adding that the White race in America should retain the superior position.

With the Brown v. Board of Education decision desegregating public schools in 1954, and the civil rights acts of 1964, 1965 and 1968, a national effort was undertaken to bring about the social and political equality that Jefferson’s words of 1776 seemed to promise but failed to deliver.

At Howard University in 1965, Lyndon Johnson took the next step, declaring: “Freedom is not enough. … We seek … not just equality as a right and a theory but equality as a fact and equality as a result.”

Yet, over half a century after the civil rights revolution, incomes and wealth are not equal. Nor is there equal representation in professions like law, medicine and higher education.

President Joe Biden’s people have pledged to Black America that they will mandate and deliver that equality of results. If equity does not now exist, the Biden administration will impose it.

And why not?

If all men (and women) are created equal, the most reasonable explanation for a consistent inequality of riches and rewards between men and women, and Black and White, is that the game has been rigged. An inequality of riches and rewards exists because “systematic racism” coexists in American society alongside “white privilege.”

The remedy is also clear. As Ibram X. Kendi, author of “How to Be an Antiracist,” told The New York Times’ Ezra Klein: “Racist policies are defined as any policy that leads to racial inequity … intent of the policymaker doesn’t matter. It’s all about the fundamental outcome.”

Thus, a policy that ensures an equal place at the starting line but consistently fails to deliver an equal place at the finish line is, de facto, racist.

If Asian and black kids start kindergarten in the same class, and Asian kids in 12th grade are studying calculus while most black kids are still trying to master algebra, racism alone, by Kendi’s rule, can explain such a regular result.

The solution to persistent inequality?

Mandate equity; mandate equality of results; mandate equal rewards for Black and White. Compel the government to produce policies that deliver an equality of results.

But what if inequalities have another explanation?

What if Asian Americans are naturally superior in mathematics?

What if an inequity of rewards in society is predominantly a result of an inequality of talents and abilities?

What if it is more true to say that, based on human experience, no two men were ever created equal, than to say all men are created equal?

As Kirk said, ideology is political religion.

What we witness today is the refusal of true believers in egalitarian ideology to accept that their core doctrine may not only not be true, but may be demonstrably false.

What we are witnessing in America is how true believers behave when they realize the church at which they worship has been erected on a bright shining lie and reality must inevitably bring it crashing down.

      On page A-3 there’s an especially glowing description of bone-into-slavery Frederick Douglas in “Republicans Must Stop Using Racist ‘Replacement’ Rhetoric”. by a chubby mulatto named Ben Jealous.

      I guess what I mean is, that there doesn’t appear to be many scholarly articles on the Occidental Observer that support young White men by teaching them how to become mentally healthy, how to communicate better and get the things they want, how to form political opposition, at least locally, how to improve their lives, give up addictions, make more money, etc. I don’t think they have time for all of these issues, and I appreciate everything that Dr. MacDonald and the other academics have done for us and exposed so much criminality, and they should continue to do so, but there should be at least one writer teaching young White men how to be successful in an anti-White age.

    Couldn’t be more timely: Memorial Day is always the last Monday in May. You can set-up a spreadsheet in which you can enter the year to determine the date on which it falls.

    Originally called Decoration Day, beginning during the Civil War between the States, Americans placed flowers on the graves of those who had died in her battles. After World War I, it came to be observed for those who died in wars in which the UNITED STATES participated and officially declared it instead to be Memorial Day.

      Exactly John. Whites have been taught from young to be competitive against other White’s to succeed in business and success. That’s how the jews take advantage of us. They work together to control the wall street banks and stock market and Hollywood and control almost all the T. V. and Newspapers, magazines and publishing companies and Ivy league universities.. Its called international organised jewry. There the ones that inflicted multiculturalism on America to breed the white race out of existence. Whites have to come together like our founders did
      and highly organise to defeat our enemy. White men are the foundation that holds America together.

        Not since the enactment of the 1913 Federal Reserve Act when USA Whites tacitly and unwittingly ceded their dominion to Rothschildean empire agencies .

        The deconstruction , including also many destructions , and subsequent construction of disassembled vital USA assets into a geo-political serfdom of the NWO ILLuminati One World Order despotism is seemingly ineluctable in the absence of any miraculous epiphany of Whites for prevailing against the global zio-jew hegemony .

    Protecting the church and the guns is (apparently) the hill that patriotards are will to die on. Why? Because the church gives them spiritual strength and the guns give them physical strength. The problem is that they are patriotards, not patriots. They are loyal to ZOG and mud-loving cuckery. For that to change they must at least first psychologically secede from ZOG, transferring their loyal to another entity. The Red States that seek to secede will be that entity.

  6. Frederick Ford
    Frederick Ford says:

    I think what Jefferson meant when he said “all men are created equal”; he meant all White Anglo-Saxon men are all equal because he certainly viewed Native Americans as savage animals and Black Slaves as docile and unintelligent livestock so his declaration of male equality was toward the equality between British Americans and British people in general as the declaration of Independence was written to oppose the lack of representation of American colonists within Parliament.

    In fact, the reason why America is still unequal today is that individuals and groups within diverse America have different interests and goals in the financial and social sectors of society because humans, contrary to liberal beliefs, will always form into separate groups and individuals who always look after themselves and only themselves because that is just human nature and the reason that this is human nature can be explained here as well as why races are naturally unequal and even constitutionally different from each other and in fact may not even share a supposed common ancestor

      I think that Jefferson was trying to say that all men and women were created equally and what he really
      meant was that the various, and clearly unequal species of humans – all popped out of a woman’s vagina. I do not think Jefferson believed that, when those crumb crunching little feet hit the floor that every race was 100 percent equal or equivalent or interchangeable.

To that Brother Nathanael replied that yes growing up in his home there were books of every topic strewn about, encyclopaedia’s every where etc etc and we were always admonished to read and asked what did you read today and explain it. And if you didn’t you were reprimanded and disciplined. Everything except the New Testament of course! Whenever I went over to non Jewish friends homes however, no books but TV’s in practically in every room.

    Ah, mathematics and the Chinese language. Given its written characters the best mathematicians are apparently the Chinese? Having said that though an interesting piece here starting with:

    “Wipeout is the man-made annihilation of the weak. It is superior to evolution, which masquerades as natural selection.”

    follows up with this morsel:

    The old man rejected this ridiculous proposal, vehemently: “Non, absolument non! I wish to tell you, Director Cai, that I am a mathematician who did mathematical modelling for half a century, and that I appreciate the access to your databases on mitochondrial genomes,… incroyable! Coli bacteria, sea cucumbers, Peking Man… whatever! I appreciate computer models on gene distributions.”

    “However,” he continued, “what are all these papers?” He gesticulated in front of him as if he had them, and read the headlines: “‘Just 2.5% of DNA turns mice into men’? Or this one: ‘Humans and chimps are 99 percent identical’? Or this one ‘Humans originated in Africa’?“

    Director Cai brushed off this nonsense. “You know the journals are like the papers now. They just print sensation.”

    “The data does not support any of these headlines. What I am saying is, mathematical modelling does not support evolution. Il n’y a pas d’évolution! Evolution it is not.“

    Director Cai was amused by this. Reza had lost his mind.

    “Yes yes, nothing that happens on this planet is natural,” the Chinaman played the part. “And how could it be natural, after all man did, right?” Cai found it amusing to play a crime suspect in an imaginary detective story. He continued to play along: “Not a single plant, crop, animal, ecology or phenomenon that is not actively manipulated by us. But we mustn’t tell the public. Evolution is like religion… like Christianity. You just have to believe and be happy.”

    “Exactement!”, yelled Reza! “We know one thing, but we tell the public another!” The old man pointed his two index fingers away from each other. He had solved the case, he thought.

    “This Institute collects data for the modification of man’s biology, the biochemistry of living organisms, the engineering of slave populations!”

    “So, if it is not evolution, what do you think we are investigating?” the director asked, testily.

    “I think the mathematics are clear: Your data here does not support evolution, it supports wipeout! Man is not 99% a survivor, he is 99% a destroyer. Or… a creator, if we phrase it for the idiot press!”

    Life, liberty, and Property are the universal defining elements of political equality but only in a formal sense. So yes, all men are indeed created equal in that formal context. This is really a non-issue but it’s been made into an issue by deranged leftists who confuse the formal with the discrete. I find it hard to believe that this issue is even debated among conservatives. I can understand why leftists attach themselves to this issue so religiously. They really believe that what Jefferson was referring to was outcome equality, when in reality such a state of being is incomprehensible to ponder let alone achieve.

    “All men are created equal” means that they are not created so but that we should build that kind of society which would result if the statement were indeed true. “They aren’t but they should have been so let’s pretend that they are and keep up with this pretense” would be a better phrasing of the credo.

    I believe the rapidly disappearing whites in the English speaking countries are born equal.
    Equally stupid. I am now 80 years old and have been saying this since I was 13 years old when 100 houses were built in my village in the Home Counties to accommodate Londoners. A field of almost ripe corn was ripped up to build the houses.
    The village population was 800 then and is now 6,500 including 3 Indian takeaways, a Thai restaurant, Indian doctors and God knows how many unwanted Invaders and Londoners.
    Stupid people give away their countries.
    Why don’t the White People train more doctors and send them to help other countries?

    In 1915 Mr Elsworthy was talking to Bernard Baruch in NY. There had been a big battle in France with thousands killed and Mr Elsworthy said the war would destroy civilisation.
    BB said he couldn’t care less. The father of Mr Elsworthy and 4 of his uncles had been killed by Yankees when the latter invaded the South.
    The Yankees invaded the South to rob the South not to end slavery which would have ended anyway. The Yankees always make money from wars, that is why there are so many wars
    Unlike BB Mr E was a good man who blamed Germany for WW1 and visited Bethmann Hollwegg to try to stop WW1.
    At the meetings they agreed to sink the Lusitania to stop American supplies to Germany
    but the Yankee Banks were making too much money for that to happen.
    I hope civilisation does not end but perhaps Mr E was right.

    Hmmm, I hope this blog and this author asks some serious questions about democracy now in America given what was found this morning on Armstrong’s blog? Read and weep:

    “2000 Mules” is the new documentary everyone has been discussing. Its current audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is 100%, and interest in the film continues to rise. There is video evidence of voter fraud surrounding the mail-in ballots during the 2020 US Presidential Election. Did Joe Biden actually secure more votes than any president in the history of our nation? An overwhelming amount of evidence suggests that the American people did not vote in the current president. Democracy has shattered and our ability to hold fair elections has come to an end.

    If all men are created equal is it not because of what Christ taught about that which comes out of a man?

    He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” Mark 7:20

    and I hope sincerely hope you all now know the truth behind global warming!!! DIVINE COMMUNICATION and ultimately judgment.

    “” Where is the historic, scientific or empirical proof of the defining dogma of American democracy that “all men are created equal”? “”

    There is of course no such proof .

    It is quite incredulous that , after more than 240 years since the 1776 worldwide viral promulgation of one of the most powerful mystical political memes in history ( aka “the shot heard around the world” ) and more than 100 years of public education about it , the meaning of that world renown statement to this day remains unsettled among the USA public where interpretations of it are constantly and vigorously but not rigorously disputed . In particular , the majority public seems to be confused about the meaning of “equal” with regard to that statement .

    The historic statement “all men are created equal” is a political statement in a famous political document
    ( which very recently has been subjected to withering attacks sponsored by the jewish owners/controllers of the USA whom are pursuant to the NWO ILLuminati agenda for a One World Government despotism headquartered at the UN )
    and is absolutely not a scientific statement . It is a statement of political equality which implies a theoretical equality
    ( which no other country proclaims )
    of standing in a court of law and that is all — nothing more and nothing less .

    Unfortunately , that world renown and inveterately controversial statement
    ( “all men are created equal” ) apparently is

    “the defining dogma of American democracy”;

    which instead should be what Democrats have often asserted __

    [ Level the Playing Fields ]

    in order to make inevitable resource competitions more fair and beneficial for humanity .

    Also unfortunately , histories tragicly reveal the often deadly opposition , by status quo establishmentarians
    ( such as The RCC Vatican Jesuits , The Brits Queen Liz monarchy , The Rothschildean central bank monopolists , The International Communists , et al )
    that arises subsequent to attempts by humanity to

    [ Level the Playing Fields ] .
