The Cole Foundation
supporting research and philosophy based on the Teachings of the New Church regarding the economy, ethics, civil law, and political theory
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
"He who is void of virtuous attachments in private life is, or very soon will be, void of all regard for his country. There is seldom an instance of a man guilty of betraying his country, who had not before lost the feeling of moral obligations in his private connections."
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power."
The Cole Foundation works to support research and philosophy based on the Teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg regarding the economy, ethics, civil law, and political theory.
