"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 July 28, 2012: Who Is The State and Firearms And Freedom

In this episode we talk about the non-existent being called the state. Who is the state? Government. What is this being? Is it you? Does he/it exist? Are you the government? No. Of course you are not. In the second hour we discuss guns and whether or not they are tools we would use to secure our freedom, or are they a fool's tool, used for bravado. 
Not if they come for my guns!! Really?

  1. IMO the fear of the cage is what makes people comply. The "fair chance at being the exploiter" is what makes it "legitimate." This is why power has to shift hands every so often. This is why the fear of the cage is viewed as an acceptable feature of society.
