The NKJV Bible does use the word “Happiness”, but not in the context that Prager uses it. See Deut. 24:5 in the context of a newlywed couple. What Prager calls “happiness” and “unhappiness” the Bible calls “contentment” and “discontentment”.
“Now godliness with contentment is great gain.”
[1 Tim. 6:6, Bible, NKJV]
If government “benefits” and franchises are the main source of unhappiness, and the Declaration of Independence says we have a right to pursue happiness, then by implication we have a right to: 1. Not be eligible for; 2. Not participate in; 3. Not be treated AS IF we are eligible for government franchises or “benefits”. The following maxims of the common law agree with this principle:
“Invito beneficium non datur. No one is obliged to accept a benefit against his consent. Dig. 50, 17, 69. But if he does not dissent he will be considered as assenting. Vide Assent.”
“Potest quis renunciare pro se, et suis, juri quod pro se introductum est. A man may relinquish, for himself and his heirs, a right which was introduced for his own benefit. See 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 83.”
[Bouvier’s Maxims of Law, 1856; https://famguardian.org/Publications/BouvierMaximsOfLaw/BouviersMaxims.htm]
Indirectly, that means we have a right to NOT use franchise license numbers, such as Social Security Numbers (Form #05.012). Watch the truth for yourself.
