It is significant as it may be depicted, that over four momentous centuries since the inception of the Magna Carter, there are innumerous legal architects as participants in the belief in “We The People”, that have given us the perception of eternity in the physical world and it can be contemplated through our impregnable case laws, judicial activists, and judicial interpretations, cementing a path for freedom for all American but with periods of indictments against this perfect union. However, we can undoubtedly say that our expanding and explosive ideatons through intellectual and non- intellectual discourses, have been imprinted in our constitutional rights to practical substantive and due processes of the law, even that the path for freedom have been marked by agents to halt the fundamental belief that we can implement changes through hard fought battles in the legal system. Indeed, I am an advocate of shaping a path for change through legal architects whose primary purpose are as advocates to manifest fairness and equality as participants, while advocating for institutional inclusiveness for the underclass. This is the hallmarks that shapes America’s democracy.
In shaping America’s democracy, there have been conspiracies to devalue those who behold to the belief that “We The People” means nonequivalent “inalienable rights” as the path for freedom. Moreover, these advocates ideatons are contrary to the perpetual advocates for social and political clubs of perpetual exclusiveness. With this in mind, we have been fortunate to have gifted and anointed individuals in America’s history that could belong to the exclusive social and political clubs of wealth but their consciousness would not allow them to be impartial to the ideatons of “We The People” having the opportunities to be able to have meaningful avenues to reach the “American Dream”. Perhaps, the path for freedom has been lost even though men and women in the history of America became sacrificial lambs for the path to freedom.
Ideally, two distinct, powerful and gifted Americans should be the subjects of discourse whereas in their era, elevated the consciousness of the political and legal structures of their time and these two individuals were the honorable Fredrick Douglas and the honorable Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior. Their consciousness led them to challenge the systemic problems of inequality, poverty, exclusiveness of socially and politically identified underclass citizens while demanding the paths for freedoms. The path for freedom led these two individuals on journeys down many dangerous yet lonely roads where the invincible ideatons for the “inalienable rights” would not be divorced from their consciousness and their political and social consciousness made them icons for the paths for freedom.
Let’s look firstly at the honorable Fredrick Douglas. Douglas’s life journey had many twist and turns but his conscious lenses persist on the path for freedom. He went through several slave masters, worked intensively to become literate, fought both physically and mentally to become a free man and receive the “inalienable rights”. For the path to freedom it is not surprising that one of Fredrick Douglas speeches he gave was a political description of what it will always take to ascertain any meaningful success in the America’s political and social land scale. It is significant to say that the honorable Fredrick Douglas mission was to heighten the contradictions in his era of democracy where slavery led us down the road to civil war. In his speech he said, “there is no progress without struggle”. This intangible ideaton remains an axiom for the path to freedom that is eternal.
Let’s look secondly at the honorable Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, where almost one hundred years later, he reflected on the “urgency of now” and his God-given consciousness led all Americans down a path for freedom and he reinforced the political and social axioms of the honorable Fredrick Douglas words “there is no progress without struggle”. Clearly, almost one hundred years later, in 1964, Dr. King’s speech “I have A Dream” he said, “I have a dream our children will no longer live in rat infested slums” has not come true. We are in worst social and political conditions today even though some progress has been made. Dr. King’s speech was one of the most powerful tools that led to civil and legal reform but in 2010, with a revision to conservative take away paths to freedom. The work of our gifted prophets must continue. Dr. King’s dream has not been fully implemented and it is incomplete but now we need new agents to advocate for change. Our “inalienable rights’ Dr. King knew are eternal and for the path for freedom will continue even when the undertone for starvation of political, social and economic inclusiveness is now the snippets of national, state. county and city financial restrains.
