"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!

Choose this day who you will serve...

Max McNabb writes about the American church of warmongering.

I can only speak for myself when I was in that mindset.

Jesus says to me, "Do you love me more than these? (gesturing to a stack of American flags)".
"Lord, you know I'm fond of you," I replied.

Jesus says to me, "Love your enemies."
"I'll love America's enemies when they stop glowing," I replied.

"Fear not those who can destroy the body."
"I'm so scared of dirt poor Muslims on the other side of the planet I'll happily cheer for a war on them based on accusations which are barely coherent, ripping the bodies of their children asunder."

"Trust in the Lord."
"I trust the Lord for something ephemeral in the distant future and some small things in the here and now. I trust in horses (the military) and princes (Republican politicians) for all of the big things, and I'll gladly cheer them as they kill millions of people."

Who is really our God? Jesus or Mars?


  1. Will Grigg notes, "British culture is now well and thoroughly godless because God and empire had been commingled in the minds of the generation that went giddily to war in 1914."

    What awaits the next generation of American “Christianity”?
