Are you late on your "Freedom is not free" payments?


What is he ranting about?

“Most men do not desire liberty; most only wish for a just master.” –Sallust (86-34BC)


I am a middle aged male that is watching the world he knew as a child morphing into something unrecognized. We have grown lazy in our ease. My children learn nothing of consequence in their civics or history classes. They look at me with disbelief when I ask them who George Mason was – with confusion when I ask what is the source of the rights denoted in the Bill of Rights – with derision when I tell them that they need to pay attention to the world and political ambitions instead of their mp3 player.

It is my fault! I too fell to the disease of complacency.I got too wrapped up in making the almighty dollar, entertaining myself, and keeping up with the neighbor’s toy acquisitions , to transmit the things I was taught by my parents down to my children. My parents didn’t pass down the values of my grandparents in their entirety.

Every generation thinks they know better than the previous one…”The world has changed…what does that  ‘old fart’  know about today’s reality?”

One thing never changes..humans are human..we exist to adapt and to maintain our illusion that we control our environment. When those that we choose to govern us lose sight of the fact that they are servants, not masters, those servants very humanity insures that ugly things will happen to those they are supposed to be serving.

I was taught that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were there for a reason; to ensure that the republic would live on in perpetuity..best ensured by eliminating the tyranny of democracy – (defined as two wolves and a sheep voting on what is going to be served for dinner). The Constitution and the Bill of Rights protect the individual from the tyranny of the majority.


“One man with courage is a majority.” –Thomas Jefferson

“People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they never use.” –Kierkegaard

“Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” –Mao Tse-Tung


 

Right now, that political power is being consolidated by the grasping government functionaries – fueled by the ideology of the left – a hangover of the Vietnam War era Marxist radical movement.

  • Liberty or Not?

    "If you want to see the future, imagine a jackboot stamping on a human face forever."
    George Orwell

    That jackboot is human nature - so is the desire to be free to live our lives as WE wish. Resist tyranny. Oppose the oppressors.

    Liberty is man's natural desire; given as a gift from our creator. The creator also gave us the choice of fulfilling our responsibilities so that liberty may live, or to be so lazy that we let it die.

    Choose wisely.
