Liberty is not synonymous with freedom. Without an historical, ethical, and moral understanding of liberty, freedom often becomes anarchy. In "the Liberty Watch," journalist Charles E. Miller examines the various contexts in which liberty's meaning is obscured or misunderstood in today's society. For more than two hundred years, the United States has thrived due to the initial understanding that liberty does not come from a federal government, but from an omniscient God. Miller uses the founding documents of America's Judeo-Christian history, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, to support this theory. Unfortunately, today's America has largely abandoned the Christian beliefs which inspired the founders in 1789. Morality and rebellion have corrupted the divine concept of liberty, resulting in a tainted view of our origins. Miller encourages us to make our own choices according to information, conscience, and moral-ethical discernment. In addition, he explores several concepts relating to liberty and freedom, including: Religious liberty as political power Moral choice and liberty The police state and civil liberty Liberty and individualism Liberty and religious tolerance Reminiscent of Thomas Paine's "Common Sense," "the Liberty Watch" delivers a thoughtful, patriotic view of the incredible freedoms citizens of the United States of America enjoy daily.
