"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!

Patriot's Lament May 26, 2012: Do you hate the state? Jeff Berwick does.

In the first hour Josh asks the question, "Do you hate the state?" We also discuss the morality of theft and the possibility that those whose ultimate goal is simply LESS theft and not the abolition of theft entirely stand on the same philosophical foundation as those who advocate for MORE theft. We challenge one of the callers on his justification for some stealing in certain instances (how much and when?).

In the second hour we have our first return guest Jeff Berwick. Jeff talks about how the state of affairs in the United States has evolved in the last few months, what the options are for Americans, and some of the services he offers to help diversify internationally. We also discuss living abroad and the freedoms that are enjoyed by foreigners outside the U.S. and especially Americans living as Perpetual Travelers or Permanent Tourists (P.T.s) outside of their home "farm."

  1. Rozeff's critique of of the state using theory of organization is very good. It is an academic critique, so there is some investment at the front end learning the lingo of the field, but it is well worth the time.

  2. Acts 4:18 They called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

    4:19 But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, judge for yourselves, 4:20 for we can’t help telling the things which we saw and heard.”

    4:21 When they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people; for everyone glorified God for that which was done.

    Seems like Peter and John were truly free.
