A “Republic of American Values?”


Prager University has a video presentation, “American values” which is no more than historical fiction. These values, Dennis Prager claims in the video, are a result of America’s unique position as not being defined by race and ethnicity. He claims America is defined by three values: 1. E Pluribus Unum 2. Liberty 3. In God We Trust.

Such claims redefine the founding of the republic.

“American values” indicate, incorrectly, a value system of a single entity. That is to say, a single state of The United States as in contradiction of the founding when The United States were defined in the Declaration of Independence as free and independent states i.e. states united. There were different values state to state.
