"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!

Special Guest Bob Murphy on Patriot's Lament - October 20, 2012

In this hour we have as our special guest Robert Murphy. Bob talks to us about his non debate with Krugman, the chicken, and then talks to us about private society, and how private defense could work and how much more ethical that would be instead of the State being the monopoly of protection.

  1. The key thing people don't get, the "but we'd all be dead without a state" people, is that for a given society there is nothing about a monopoly provider of "justice" and "defense" which makes it more civilized, and much to suggest that it instead DEGRADES civilization.

    A state is a vice of relative affluence a society inflicts on itself.
