The Biggest Threat

Updated: Feb 19, 2020

By Kerry Slone


Since the beginning of my endeavor into Constitutional rights advocacy a year ago, I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to engage in many conversations surrounding our nation’s history, the philosophies of our Founding Fathers, and the future of the fundamental human rights which were guaranteed to each American under the Constitution. However, one of these conversations presented me with the best questions I’ve ever been asked: “What is the biggest threat to our liberty?”

While I immediately responded, “We The People are own own biggest threat”,

I wasn’t able to stop pondering it.

This simple, yet powerful question led me to contemplate the many facets of not only what the biggest threat to our liberty truly is, but also why? Why are “We The People”, our own biggest threat? As I explored my response, I realized the answer was grounded in a theory that I formed several months ago: “The Three C’s”. I attribute the “Three C’s”, or Complacency, Complicity and Contrary, which the American people have allowed to permeate every aspect of our society, and our communities.

We have become COMPLACENT. We allow the news media and the government to erode our ability to think for ourselves, make decisions and take responsibility for our own lives.

We have become COMPLICIT. We encourage our family and friends to surrender our freedoms to the very government that continues to take away the natural rights that our forefathers guaranteed every American in our Constitution.

We have become CONTRARY. We viciously attack those who invite us to assume responsibility for our own actions, successes and failures. Our laziness , our arrogance, and our ignorance have provided the fuel for the fire that has begun to destroy the very foundation our nation was founded on.

My answer to this simple, yet profound question? WE THE PEOPLE are the biggest threat to America’s liberty.

WE THE PEOPLE are responsible for the culture and government which we have created. WE THE PEOPLE must now make the decision stand together and take action against the COMPLACENT, COMPLICIT, and CONTRARY culture we have created. Not only for ourselves, but for our future generations who will inherit our Nation.
