"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!

Relax, the local crime spree may just be the Feds trying to corrupt your neighborhood teens and mentally challenged with sex and drugs...

And an interesting article on the police.

Some sizable portion of the cops don't start out as sociopaths, in my opinion. The incentive structure, the nature of the laws being enforced, the groupthink/feeling of authority (think of the Stanford Prison Experiment) etc. turns them that way. Some small percentage maintain (or regain) their humanity.

If you really want "law and order" you'd best not look to something shaped like a state to provide it.
