"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!

June 9 and June 2 Patriot's Lament episodes

Patriot's Lament June 9, 2012: Withdraw Your Consent and What Is Freedom?

In the first hour we discuss the power of withdrawing consent. Non-participation with the correct philosophical basis may be the most powerful way to render coercive power irrelevant.

In the second hour we explore the question of what freedom means. It can mean many different things to many different people, but some decisions seem to expand the horizon of our possible choices while others limit this horizon. If we look at freedom this way we arrive at some rather different conclusions than some who claim to be pursuing freedom. David also dispels the myth that a One World Government can be sustained for any meaningful period of time.

Patriot's Lament June 2, 2012: Stefan Molyneaux and Education vs. Schooling

Stefan Molyneaux joins us in the first hour to talk about the non-aggression principle, the "against me" argument, and the slow but steady march towards liberty throughout history.

In the second hour we discuss the difference between education and schooling. Could you become educated without any school? Could you not get any education with lots of school? We take a look at both of these questions.


  1. David, Do you have an email or contact form you can be reached at? I just saw you on Anarchast with Jeff Berwick, and wanted to ask you a question about moving to Canada. I'd prefer not to write it as a comment.


  2. Jason, absolutely. Email is dgiessel mac com.
