“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few public officials.” ~ George Mason
By Catherine Austin Fitts
I had the most remarkable conversation at dinner in Sydney with a Solari Report subscriber joining me on the road to Uluru. He said that what would take us through this period of change was divine enlightenment and inspiration.
The reason, he said, to embrace the U.S. Constitution and the period of enlightenment that inspired it is to claim our full legacy of divine enlightenment – the divine inspiration that our ancestors have received throughout the ages. This is our inheritance – the accumulated wisdom of the proceeding generations.
We need it now.
To continue our discussions regarding the U.S. Constitution, I asked Dr. Edwin Vieira to join me to discuss his book The Sword and Sovereignty regarding the militias. Dr Vieira is one of the finest Constitutional scholars of our time. If you have not heard his Solari Report on why it is essential to enforce the US Constitution, I highly recommend it. Click Here.
This coming week, Dr. Vieira and I discuss the militias operating at the time of the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Dr. Vieira explains why such organizations have so much potential to contribute to a self-governing people.
Understanding the history of the militia teaches us about our inheritance – both the divine values and practical habits that created our faith in the transcendental power of the rule of law.
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend Mel Gibson’s The Patriot about Benjamin Martin, a veteran of the French and Indian War and a widower with seven children who leads a militia army during the Revolutionary War.
