Why This Film Is So Important
Regarding the film In Search of Liberty and the subject of our U.S. Constitution: what's the big deal? Well, there are really only three milestones of freedom in human history.
In ancient Greece, around 480 BC, a leader named Pericles developed the idea that citizens could have something to say about government. Prior to that there had only been tyrants and slaves.
Then in England, 1215 AD, some nobles convinced King John to sign the Magna Carta, or the Great Charter, a document that said, in essence, "Not just the King has rights." However, this document was not honored.
Leap forward to 1787 and the U.S. Founders concocted a form of government that exists for the purpose of serving its citizens.
The Declaration of Independence that our Founders wrote states:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--”
From the consent of the governed.
This had never happened before and the results were outstanding.
America flourished to the point of being the most powerful country on Earth and a model of success and freedom for civilized people everywhere to emulate.
Our U.S. Constitution is the policy that guaranteed this freedom and caused the expansion. That’s the big deal!
Yet, with our educational system now largely used as indoctrination camps for misinformation, we have generations of Americans with only the slightest knowledge of our U.S. Constitution and very little, if any, sense of its vital importance to our continued survival as a free people.
This is why the movie, In Search of Liberty, was produced.
Watching this movie, those with little to no knowledge will achieve a basic understanding of our U.S. Constitution – where it came from, what it consists of and how to maintain its principles - and be delightfully entertained in the process. It is the antidote for the poison of ignorance that has been purposely injected into our schools.
The award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie can also act as a refresher for those who do have some knowledge of this incredible document.
This is a movie that every American Citizen should see and share with all family members and friends. As knowledge of our U.S. Constitution continues to spread and more and more Americans understand and support it we will be able to save our Republic.
