Losing Liberty


"It is incredible how as soon as a people become subject, it promptly falls into such complete forgetfulness of its freedom that it can hardly be roused to the point of regaining it, obeying so easily and willingly that one is led to say that this people has not so much lost its liberty as won its enslavement."

-- Estienne de la Bo├ętie (1530-1563) French judge, writer, political philosopher, author of Discourse on Voluntary Servitude

I just found you from a forum post on principledpatriots. You're a great writer!

I'm trying to get a group together, a kind of conglomerate of bloggers, if you will, that could all post occasional articles at FreedomRadicals.blogspot.com . I'd LOVE to post some of you articles there as well. Anyways, please email me at RadicalsForFreedom@gmail.com if you might be interested or if you know anyone else who might want to help out.

Also, there is a radio host in Northwest Florida (soon to be a majority of Florida) at BurnieThompson.com . He's got podcasts and things like that. You really should check him out, he's definitely on our side, so to speak.

Thanks for posting what you post, it doesn't go unnoticed. We have to fight back against this lunatic ideology before we all start asking ourselves "Who is John Galt?"

Nicolas,
thanks for tracking me down, I don't recall posting at PrincipledPatriots. I'd love a link to refresh my memory. In the mean time, I will check it out...and thanks for the compliment.
