In this episode we discuss what makes America so special. There have been other republics throughout history and even other constitutional forms of government. What is it that sets America apart from these?
Additional references from the episode can be found below:
- Declaration of Independence: “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.”
- 10 Commandments
- CORRECTION: In the episode, Jason mistakenly attributed this quote to Ben Franklin instead of its original source, John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
- Ben Franklin quote: “I’ve lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing Proofs I see of this Truth — That God governs in the Affairs of Men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that except the Lord build the House they labor in vain who build it. I firmly believe this, — and I also believe that without his concurring Aid, we shall succeed in this political Building no better than the Builders of Babel”
