"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 end of Politics of obedience

I wanted to post this at the end of the last post, but decided to make it its own.

Let us therefore learn while there is yet time, let us learn
to do good. Let us raise our eyes to Heaven for the sake of
our honor, for the very love of virtue, or, to speak wisely, for
the love and praise of God Almighty, who is the infallible witness
of our deeds and the just judge of our faults. As for me,
I truly believe I am right, since there is nothing so contrary to
a generous and loving God as tyranny—I believe He has
reserved, in a separate spot in Hell, some very special punishment
for tyrants and their accomplices.
