Navigating to the City on the Hill or Over the Gomorrahian Precipice – How One’s Worldview affects the Destiny of a Nation

In this presentation, Salt & Light Global looks at law, liberty, and governance from two different perspectives. The first perspective views law through a traditional objectivist worldview lens, where humans discover law from an inviolable self-evident standard revealed in Divine/Natural Law. The second perspective views law through a subjectivist worldview lens, where humans create law utilizing an ever-evolving morally relative secular model. What are the implications for good governance under the rule of law if the American Republic shifts its predominant philosophical paradigm to reject objective “self-evident” truths of the Declaration for a subjective morally relative, ever evolving worldview? Salt & Light Global answers this question using powerful examples from legal history.
