Yeah, that the movement that began with the Magna Carta where the Lord said taken issue with the crown, was attempting to tax them and for the first time in ways that were not previously allowed that whole movement, then ultimately gave birth to the English Civil War to the Cromwell Republic and and up and then thereafter to the rise in rights and we are talking about how by the time of the end of the 17th century, even as Sir Robert Fillmore was publishing a patriarchate in defense of the divine right of kings. There was arising which would ultimately express itself in the 18th century in the publication of of Locke's two treatises on Government Algernon Sidney's work sent roof and door for numerous other philosophers of freedom. This notion of individual rights that the crown unlike what Fillmore argued the crown was not the only individual who had rights that actually rights were from God. They were not from the state and that they were not given by God to one person based on their birth but actually were birthright of all people, and this then was translated into a movement called the radical Whig movement and it was championed in England by a number of people including John Wilkes and an end. John Thomas Gordon and John trencher to row to hundred and 44 letters on liberty published in the London Gazette. From 1720 1723 and those letters and that philosophy were adopted by our founding fathers and were actually the impetus for the American Revolution, the ideology that drove roots that underlay for example common sense by Thomas Paine most popular attract in the revolutionary. And it also where ever ask of Tierney occurred in the colonies when, for example, John Peter Singer was prosecuted for seditious libel or numerous others were prosecuted throughout the colonies for services libel in those colonies, and throughout the colonies in protest to the action.
There would be put republication of Cato's letters of the particular letters on liberty that were in defense of freedom of speech and war and wasn't liberty then also supported by the great awakening.
I mean, you think about the pulpits and what they were preaching from the pulpits they were reaching were true freedom.
They were preaching liberty in and of course the author of liberty is Christ right and and the amazing thing about this is that interwoven with free agency or with a Christianity is of course free agency free agency underpins courage Christianity. Each person is allowed to send that is part of your free agency. There is no satanic plan of perfect conformity rather we are allowed to be free and we are responsible for our actions and ultimately responsible to God and that that Christian belief underlay's the entire concept of American liberty.
