"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 Declaration of Independence

At many various times the US government has considered the document which formally declared the separation of the colonies from Great Britain to be subversive, and reading it in public to be criminal.

I wonder why that might be.

Frank Chodorov's interesting thoughts on the Declaration of Independence are worth reading here: http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/140852.html

  1. I appreciate Lex, Rex by Rutherford as the document most subversive to tyranny. He would have been executed for writing it, but upon receiving the summons to appear before the king's High Commission, he was "summoned to a higher court," as he told them, and died not long after.

    Truth is always subversive to tyranny.
