The Birth of Keystone State
«VIRTUE, FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE»
Flag and motto of the state of Pennsylvania
The William Penn’s Kingdom,
or Does America exist in future?
This US state named «Keystone» remains the Cornerstone not only in the History of the USA, but in the Methahistory of all mankind. The most grandiose ethical and democratic initiatives of American Freedom were founded here. Pennsylvania is a birthplace of the most important events of the formation of the USA as an independent state. This state is the outpost of the beginning of true human freedom. Pennsylvania became the first territory in the New World, where human slavery was condemned and legally prohibited. William Penn demanded its complete abolition in the remaining colonies and states of America. In the code of laws of Pennsylvania, he has compiled, the law of God and Virtue, the equality for all people and all forms of violence were condemned, as well as all the legal rights of every citizen to freedom and social justice were approved.
In the modern America belief in God, Virtue, and Social Equality have been abandoned and not needed. Here Socialism is equated with fascism and declared as a society’s evil virtue. William Penn's apostolic exploits are not mentioned in textbooks. The younger generation of citizens is growing up, not knowing anything about who exactly discovered their country and what laws were were established first. Now the basis for freedom in America is the desire to get rich: profit, business, career, hoarding, materialism. Historical examples are used correspondingly, and children’s unanimous dream is only how to become a millionaire. As for Virtue, no one ever mentions it. Perhaps this is tacitly prohibited. The Holy Crosses, Bible and Gospel, and the wise quotes of its Founding Fathers are expelled from public places and government institutions. Indeed, these relics are hardly appropriate here.
All of the United States laws were changed and turned for the rich people and their interests. The middle class and the poor are mercilessly plundered by the state and slavery, corruption, all criminal types of business are flourishing. The state turned into a pyramid of mafias – from the political at the very top and to the Latinos community – such as landscapes and the hospitality services. America is a country for millionaires and billionaires and it is clear to everyone. But does it exist in the ethical space of the universe? Does this country has a future? The question remains open, because the future is the realization of a dream and creative ideas of modernity necessarily in the interests of all mankind. And if there is no dream, there is nothing to come true in the future.
William Penn was, above all, a Great Dreamer. Romantic, idealist and real fighter for the Christian faith. His Royal and poetic appearance, his sublime soul and strong will were perfectly fit with the Appalachian Great Nature. Pennsylvania belongs to him not because he bought it, but because he von its heart. They were made for each other. Yes, William Penn was a Great Dreamer, and all of his dreams came true. He founded not only the state, which to this day remains the Cornerstone, but he founded his own Land – Kingdom of God, and matrix of the Spirit of America. The word «Pennsylvania» is translated from Italian as «Penn's Land and Forests». The official date of formation as a state unit is 1787, but the true history of this state dates back to the time of King Charles II of England, who owned all these vast lands of North America.

From the History of Pennsylvania
Before the arrival of Europeans in North America, in the territory of Pennsylvania for thousands of years lived the tribes of the peoples of Delaware (Lenni-lenape), Susquehanna, Iroquois, Erie, Shone, Saone, Saluda, Honeasont. The first European explorer to see the shores of Pennsylvania was Italian Giovanni da Verrazzano, who sailed in 1524 along the east coast of North America. At the beginning of the XVII century land rights in Pennsylvania were contested by England and Holland. The British believed that these territories are part of the Virginia colony. The name of the Delaware River (and the state of Delaware) was given in honor of the first governor of the English colony in Jamestown, Thomas West Lord De La Verre. However, the very first European settlements in Pennsylvania were founded in the 20’s of the XVII century by Dutchman: these were trading posts of the West India Company.
In those years, the American colony "New Holland", owned by the West India Company, was led by Peter Minoyit (who bought Manhattan Island from the Indians, where later modern New York grew). In 1631, he quarreled with the leaders of the company, was dismissed and, with the help of his friends in Sweden (which was then one of the leading European powers), in 1638 organized on the territory of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware several settlements under Swedish flag - the colony "New Sweden".
But in 1655 however, the Dutch restored control over the territory, and in 1664 all the Dutch possessions in North America end up being seized by the British. On March 4, 1681, King Charles the II of England transferred the rights to a vast territory in North America to William Penn, son of an English admiral, a committed Christian, entrepreneur, famous English writer and philosopher. The lands were transferred as a repayment of the royal debt of £ 16,000 to Penn’s father, an admiral of the British fleet Sir William Penn Sr. The new owner called his colony «Pennsylvania», «Forest Country Penn». The lands of Pennsylvania remained the property of the Penn family until the end of the 18th century, when the state of Pennsylvania, one of the first 13 states of the USA, was created in the new independent country, USA.

Penn’s ideas and struggles for Freedom and Democracy.
As for religion William Penn was a Quaker-pacifist, a follower of the branch of Protestantism that advocates toleration, equality of all people and total rejection of violence. He tried to implement these principles in his new American colony. And even the new city founded by him in the valley of the Delaware which Penn called Philadelphia translates as «The City of Brotherly Love». The son of an English nobleman, William Penn, was never a conqueror. He built temples and set up Crosses throughout the entire territory of his Land, which he called «a refuge for free-thinking Europeans». Designed by William Penn the structure of the government of Pennsylvania (in fact the Constitution of this province) was the most liberal at the time. Among other provisions, it provided for the freeing of slaves, freedom of religion and humane criminal code.
From the very first years of his stay in America, Penn advocated the unification of the English colonies. The democratic principles he spelled out in the Pennsylvania Constitution (The «Pennsylvania Frame of Government») served as the basis for the United States Constitution. As a pacifist, Penn was serious about the peaceful resolution of world conflicts. He developed a promising project for the United States about Europe in which he proposed the creation of a European Assembly of deputies who could discuss and decide on various disputes without resorting to violence. This gives the right to consider him the first thinker who proposed the creation of the European Parliament. A man of strong religious convictions, Penn wrote many works in which he called on believers to join the spirit of First Christianity. Several times he was serving a sentence in «The Tower» and his book «Without a Cross there is no Crown» (1669) which he wrote in prison became a classic of Christian literature.
A man of fiery faith and with heart of a knight and a poet.
He laid the foundations of the Human Brotherhood and Ethical Politics.

Native American Treaty
Many religious and political refugees from Europe mostly Germans Scots and Irish people flooded into Pennsylvania. Philadelphia grew rapidly and soon became one of the most important cities in North America (later as one of the largest cities in the USA). William Penn sought to maintain peaceful and good-neighborly relations with the indigenous people Native American Indians in every way. In 1683, in the Indian village of Shakkamaks on he has concluded a Treaty of Friendship with the leaders of Lenny-Lenape tribe which was led by Tammani. Later Voltaire said that it was «the only treaty between the Indians and Christians that was never broken.»
In the 17th century many of new settlers mastered the new world, cultivated new lands and Pennsylvania expanded to the west. The heirs of William Penn no longer adhered to his peace-loving policy towards the Indians. During the war between England and France (and the Indian tribes that came to its side) in North America known as the French-Indian War (1754-1763), several battles took place in western Pennsylvania. Then in 1759, Fort Pitt was built and later became Pittsburgh- the second most populated city in Pennsylvania. In the summer of 1776, after the end of the French-Indian War, Fort Pitt was besieged by Indians who at the same time carried out raids into the heart of Pennsylvania.
It was one of the most important episodes for the Pontiac Rebellion: an organized performance of Indians dissatisfied with the policies of the British authorities led by Pontiac, the leader of the Ottawa tribe. It was during the siege of Fort Pitt that the British led by warlords Jeffrey Amherst and Henry Bouquet, tried to give out blankets infected with smallpox among the Indians, thus attempting to cause an epidemic. Exactly how many Indians ended up being infected remains unknown but this incident went down in history as one of the most terrible examples of European methods of colonization of North America.
Mason-Dixon line - into the consciousness
of each citizen!
In the 1780s in 17th century , from the moment the British king handed his rights to American lands over to William Penn a dispute erupted between Maryland and Pennsylvania about its borders and territories. Charles II did not specify exactly where the southern borders of Penn’s lands lies thus creating the ground for conflict. In the thirties of the 18th century armed conflicts between colonists broke out due to border disputes.The problem was not solved for decades until finally in 1763 to 1767 English astronomer and explorer Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dickson took the necessary measurements and marked the boundary between the two colonies and its territories. This border which is a part of a few between the modern states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and West Virginia called the Mason-Dixon Line.
Later this line began to symbolize the border between the Northeast and the South of the United States: between the slavery and free states of the United States. Formally, slavery ended in America and prohibited by law. However, due to the established political and social conditions, it is universally present. If a person works on hiring a state or a boss, he has no right to “go where he wants,” but only where he is indicated; not entitled to their own opinion; not entitled to privacy; has no right to express any criticism or discontent. People working in government positions automatically become slaves for a piece of bread!

In the United States today, there are entire states and vast regions of disgraceful poverty, where all residents are doomed to extinction. There are concentration camps, and not only for adults, but also for the children of immigrants! And this is called freedom and democracy?! But was William Penn expecting this outcome and did his dream aspire to this?

America's Greatest Tragedy
If the United States continued to live according to the principles that were laid down in the Constitution of Pennsylvania, the native people of America would remain safe and sound. We are talking about the death of a whole continent, according to various estimates, from 82 to 100 million people! None of the US presidents repented for such unprecedented atrocities. Moreover, the Indians continue to die in the United States - everywhere. In Pennsylvania, they remained less than 0.2% of the total population. Alas, the wealthy descendants of William Penn betrayed his covenants, began to rewrite the laws for themselves and turned on the path of a merciless war with the indigenous people of America - for the sake of profit and profit. So the good traditions of the first settlers were trampled by the greedy boots of the godless, who came here in the XVIIIth century, and the very name of the great founding Father today is practically forgotten. In schools and universities, the question of this treacherous betrayal and the complete substitution of the main principles of the first colonists is actively ignored. The land of America remains drenched with the innocent blood of the indigenous people, the Christian world and no peace in it. All the time children, civilians are dying, terrible disasters, devastating tornadoes, hurricanes and floods occur.
But William Penn passed through it! Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, New Jersey - sanctified by the high gusts of the soul and the brightest aspirations of the mind of the great thinker and pioneer of America. His works were not in vain. The words of the Christian Enlightenment and Brotherly Love fell into the rocky soil of the Appalachians and remained here forever. Driving through Pennsylvania to Jordanville we see fabulously beautiful Nature, amazing cities; we see Crosses on the roads, at the hills, off the river bends – they are found here more often than in other states. In general everything here is special, grand and majestic. The air, space and the skies, forests and mountains, fast rivers and blue horizons. The marvelous beauty of Pennsylvania and the Appalachians - it enchants you! It inspires and exploits and calls for new travel to the Unknown. You feel a unique sense of freedom at Penn's Wooded Land! Here is his soul dwells, and here he continues the great work of humanization, enlightenment of the appearance of our planet.
The name of William Penn was expelled from the life of people and from legal codes, but William Penn, with the endless magic power of his Earth, entered the heart of every American. It was he who formed the great nation. Americans for the most part are honest, truthful, ethical and God fearing people. They continue on the path of their Founding Fathers and do not tolerate infringement on their personal freedom. Honest USA citizens never in reconciliation with political evil and violence. They will definitely change the system of remote voting in the country's presidential elections and will put an end to the political mafia that seized the White House and is terrorizing our entire planet. To God the Creator, to his best sons and daughters of America - William Penn is with us in this fight! Eternal Memory to the heroes, the first organizers of the human Brotherhood on our planet! We bow our heads and keep their names in our hearts!
On the winds of Pennsylvania.
It will restore the Truth and give praise to the Founders of American Freedom.
