"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!

The Revolution Will Be Televised

I think this is an appropriate song for the times we live in.

Welcome to the world of computer chips and manuscripts
Where everybody seals their lips
Wrong or right we came to clear your sight
Combat, better prepare to bust back
TV screens get you the satellite beams
Wrong or right we came to clear your sight
This type of game come as no surprise
Ready to rise
The Revolution will be televised

The Revolution will be televised
The Revolution will be a war of attrition
Waged against the sleeping
The Revolution will be fought in all forms of media
It’ll be fought on phone wires
On cable modems
On our cell phones
On our palm pilots
The revolution will be fought on CNN

We stand in the face of a quickening
And the great dumbing down of our people
And in our greatest minds
And we wage war by whatever means necessary
By punishing awakening
Into our senses and into our thoughts
Sparkling McDonald’s cookie-cutter Pleasantville
Out of our gray slumber

This revolution is not free
This revolution is not free

It's powerful
This revolution is our revolution
And we embrace our revolution
We decide beyond the shack of rules and lies and false information
This is our revolution and our revolution is secure
