"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

Peter Schiff educates us on the Greater Depression

Thanks so much to Jeff Berwick for coming on as a guest for the first half hour of today's show. I will have that up on YouTube later this week for everyone to listen to at their leisure. Be sure to check out Jeff's newsletter and YouTube channel at the links below:

One of the topics that Jeff touched on that generated some interest from the callers was the current economic collapse (which is here now and going to deepen). The best presenter of the causes and solutions to the current situation in my opinion is Peter Schiff. I have linked to several YouTube clips of his below showing him calling the crisis, talking about what we should do now, and finally one where he talks about his book How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes (click the link to purchase from Amazon). This book takes less than two hours to read and gives you all the information you need to know. You don't have to become an expert in economics to understand it.

Peter Schiff was Right:

Peter Schiff 2006 Mortgage Banker's speech (where he tells them housing is going to crash):

Schiff at the Mises Institute discussing the collapse and what's next:

Lew Rockwell interviewing Schiff on his book How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes:

Some of these videos are long, but a couple hours of your time could save you a massive amount of money as this crisis deepens.


  1. Thank you for continuing to post top notch information. Not only does it never get redundent, it helps me explain and articulate what happened, whats going on, and whats coming. I also cut and paste the links and send them to my loved ones. Thanks again!

  2. I'm glad this is a useful resource for you Scott! Much of the information is not original, but this is a nice format for distilling down a sea of information into bite sized "essentials" that will help us successfully navigate a volatile and rapidly changing world.
