A friend sent me this message with the included link to the new movie titled, “NonCompliant Movie” . I am sharing his message and the link to the new movie herein with all of you:
” Interesting recent paper on the great Swiss jurist, Emer de Vattel: “Vattel’s argument that states should be understood as free and independent bodies operating as moral persons in the international sphere is credited with launching a doctrine of sovereignty that hardened national borders against external interference or obligation. It also helped launch one of the world’s first modern states through its influence on the American founding. Vattel’s theory rests upon the critical role of judgment, specifically, the judgment of interests. That doctrine requires that states must always think for themselves, but not only about themselves. Offering some justification for international action, even in the midst of disagreement or war, is what separates civilized from villainous nations. Vattel’s distinctive combination of independence and interests is set within a global community that makes the fate of outsiders the business of every state. Emer de Vattel’s 1758 The Law of Nations is among a select group of works credited with framing the birth of modern internationalism. His writings were pivotal for the American founding and Armitage calls Vattel “the single most globally influential moral and political writer” of the late eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries, saying the period could be considered a “Vattelian moment.” The argument is that for Vattel states are like people first, because they have interests, and second, because they communicate with one another about those interests. State interests not only affirm their independence, they also underwrite interconnectedness through wise diplomacy. The struggle to pin down the requirements of self-interest makes the readiness to communicate one’s position candidly and thoroughly a central lynchpin in the international equation.” To which I say, therefore, “Arizona First and America First!” Read the rest HERE. See Vattel on “natural born Citizen” (driving USC Art II Sec 1 Cl 5 POTUS CINC) HERE. See KrisAnne Hall’s “Non-Compliant Movie” HERE.”
Be sure to watch the very powerful and so, so true and historically accurate new movie “NonCompliant Movie” featuring Krisanne Hall of Liberty First University. I did. This outstanding, free, streaming online, new educational movie about our constitutional republic form of government should be shown as a Lyceum Class in every Middle School, High School, and College.
