Kurt on freedom

In his book Palm Sunday, Kurt Vonnegut wrote that American freedoms will disappear, as all freedoms disappear when men start to believe in lofty ideas such as divine and natural laws. Only human laws- constitutions- offer a bulwark against despots and I think he was right.

He said of adherents of natural law that it made the belief that the African is only fit for menial tasks and is inferior to his white companion allowing even Jefferson to have slaves of his own.

Seeing as the religious groups have so much influence in the US government, protections offered by human laws will get eroded over time and soon there will be nothing to stand on.

Maybe it is time to take a stand for human laws
