Historical Relativism as explained in the book “Jefferson Lies,” written by David Barton, asserts that in history, religion, culture and law there are no absolutes or transparent principles. Values are determined individually, and personal standards trump traditional ones.
The First amendment was clearly written to protect one’s religious beliefs and enable them to worship as they please and prohibit the creation of a state-sponsored religion. But because of Relativists, it has now been reversed so as to ban religious practices and exercises that once was a mainstay of our American way of life.
The Relativists teach that all governments are good, equating that communism, socialism, and totalitarian governments are equal to freedom and democracy.

But in the real world, all governments are not equal. A simple comparison would reveal this to the most casual researcher. In order to reach a sensible conclusion all one need to do is judge the fruits or consequences of the various systems. America’s four percent of the total world population produces over twenty-five percent of the world’s products while other nations such as Estonia, South Korea, Czech Republic and others who have embraced our form of government have seen their economy boom.
Our form of government also produces stability. While we in the United States have only had one form of government for over two hundred years, France has had eighteen constitutions, Brazil seven, Poland seven, Russia four, etc. You can’t have strong economic or social growth without the long-term stability of a solid constitution and one government over a long period of time.
Regardless of what the relativists say or believe, all beliefs are not created equal. Different actions and beliefs create different results. Different values create different outcomes, it is a rule of nature and Nature’s God, whether in law, government, culture or morality. It cannot be changed, depending not on how much the relativists may want to.

To anyone who is paying attention, the world is changing and changing rapidly. Old values and traditions are falling as new ones take their place.
Without a doubt, many old customs need to fall by the wayside, however, we need to be careful and not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Too many of the values that have supported and guided mankind throughout the ages are also being questioned and many times discarded like yesterday’s fish dinner.
There are certain universal truths that can never be discarded if mankind is to survive and evolved through the ages. The “Universal Truths” are set in stone and often referred to as God’s Laws”, or the Laws of Nature, or “Nature’s Laws”. These laws are based not only on common sense but on the laws of physics as well.
