"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 opinion surveys revealing that a substantial portion of the population is content to have the NSA watching their every move is probably the most depressing news I've had in a while. Nothing in the book 1984 showed the complete destruction of the people as people like they're putting up with being observed continually. Nothing dehumanizes people like thinking that their every move is monitored by others, whose intentions they can never trust.
