"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!

Government is morally wrong

Another excellent interview with Lew Rockwell. For you Christians, I especially want you to think about the point he makes with Satan and the Temptation of Christ. The Devil takes Christ to the top of a mountain and says, "all these kingdoms I will give you if you will bow to me". So, were they his to give? He obviously thought so. And nothing is said otherwise. So can we assume by this that the kingdoms of earth, the governments of earth, are the devils? Then why oh why do we put so much energy in trying to make them ours? Do as Christ did, reject the offer of kingdoms. Reject the State.
The state is nothing more than the enemy of the people. It always has been. It cannot be anything else.
We tried to emphasize this on our radio program a couple of weeks back. How can you, if you say you are moral, vote for evil, no matter how small it is, knowing in your heart that it is evil?
This takes no courage or moral fortitude. It is admitting defeat, it is moral slavery. It is nothing more than compromising with evil.
Take a stand, let the chips fall where they may, at least you can go to bed at night in peace. You can tell your posterity that you rejected evil, and no matter what the cost, you rejected it, you would not consent.
This takes much more inner fortitude than following the masses and being a state-owned serf. This requires one to be moral, to be strong, to be one who stands for that which is Right no matter what the consequences are.
Think I am being melodramatic? Try telling your friends you refuse to participate in this evil. They will mock you and hate you for it. Why? They have no moral fortitude themselves.
No matter what the cost, do Right. Do good. Fight for good, reject evil. Don't get caught up in the futile attempts to control the state. Reject it.
Refuse consent.
Then, you will see change. At least in your life. And you can look in the mirror, and know you did more than 10 million voters. You said NO!
The power is in consent.
Take it back.
Lew Rockwell, "The government is morally wrong."


  1. I find it interesting that He did not argue with Satan. He didn't reason or debate using human logic and reasoning. He simply refused him, and He did it solely with the Word of God.

    The Devil didn't argue with Him, either.

  2. I keep saying this to no avail. Black or white/yes or no; there is no middle ground. Courage to stand for your convictions (assuming that you have them in the first place) is the only thing (in my opinion) that is important in this world.
    Strength and courage.
