"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!

McClanahan Academy.

Brion is an excellent source for American colonial and Southern history, and he is excellent on secession and the history behind it too.

These courses cost a few bucks, but they are worth it.

Support the NFL protesters

If you don't live in a log, you have surely heard of the NFL protesters who have been taking a knee during the national anthem before the football game begins.
This started with Colin Kaepernick, who, in 2016, took a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against blacks.
Kaepernick made it clear what his motives were, he wasn't protesting the military's involvement in the world, the unjust U.S. wars that have killed a few million people the last 16 years.
He wasn't protesting the U.S. Empire.
He was protesting what he saw as injustice.
This to me, seems to be the most noble of protests that an individual could make. Keeping true to one's conscience. Which, according to the Founding Fathers of America, said was key to American Liberty, the Freedom of Conscience.
There are many quotes and writings about the Freedom of Conscience. It is where the 1st amendment stems from, while today it is talked about freedom of religion or speech, it boiled down to one person's conscience.
The Founders held that a man's conscience was the one thing that he must be free to pursue, as he would be and is accountable to God for his actions in regards to his conscience.

Obviously, the Donald Trump's comments disregarding the NFL players freedom to pursue their conscience, or at least suggesting, (I would say demanding) that a player be punished for expressing their conscience, stirred up a huge national debate towards this subject.
It turned into "they don't respect the military, or the flag the "brought them freedom".
It's odd to even say this, if the military, supposedly, fights for the freedom of Americans to express themselves, then the NFL players should be heralded as hero's of the cause.

I personally think, since when does the American flag belong strictly to the military? I thought it represented 'Merica? Since when does a piece of cloth demand so much loyalty?

Most soldiers I know, will tell you, they didn't fight for the ol red, white and blue, they fought for their comrades next to them who just wanted to get home alive.

This stigma towards the flag and anthem, is just nationalism at it's best. Don't you dare question the flag, for to do so, you question the State.
And that is the one thing the State cannot allow.
The State needs, even if it must compel, total loyalty, and consent.

I know it's hard for some dad or uncle who told his son or nephew how proud he was that he was going to war for Uncle Sam, (only to have his son obliterated, or mangled, just to find out the very State he was fighting for had anything in mind but the agenda it sold the young lad,) to admit he was wrong and maybe holds some fault for the outcome of his child, but sometimes the truth sucks.

So, instead of being a dolt and blindly following the State no matter what it tells you, and rather the opposite, support the ones who the State calls enemy, especially when it is your own countrymen.

Here is a link to the good men who stood against the State, even if it was a meager stance, and not totally with all the right intentions.

Stand with these folks, and BUY THEIR JERSY'S. Or any other trinkets that have their jersey numbers on it.

As Jefferson said so well, " the spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it always to be kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not be exercised at all".

NFL Players who took a stand by taking a knee

I am happy to say, my favorite team, the New England Patriots, had 20 of the 53 man roster kneel.

A good discussion on Target Liberty

Robert Wenzel's site, "Target Liberty", is a site I go to several times a day. There is a good discussion there now about obligation, libertarianism, and so on.
Some of the commenters really make me wonder about humanity in general.

Suburban primitives in action

Local (Fairbanks) 3 gun shoot!

A listener to the show, Josh, has let me know that he and a group of friends have started a 3 gun shoot here in Fairbanks.
Right now they are getting together once a month. Anyone who needs to work on their shooting, and who doesn't, should look into participating if they can.
A 3 gun shoot includes shooting 3 different firearm types, a pistol, a shotgun, and a rifle, walking, jogging, or running through a course with various targets to shoot.
Semi-automatics are preferred. Josh also tells me he will let folks borrow his guns for the shoot, but asks that they bring their own ammo.
After a brief but important talk on firearm safety, he goes through the basics of the course with the group, and the fun begins!!
Their next meetup is going to be on the 6th of August, as of now.

So, if you want to sharpen your skills in a firearms, meet some new folks, and just have a good ol fun time, contact Josh at iccarus_effect@yahoo.com

A comment on Tom Woods website about whether Liberty can be promoted within the Republican party.

I love Tom Woods. And I love the Tom Woods show. He recently had a guest and put the question out "can Liberty be promoted within the Republican Party".
I say "who cares"? in the comment section.

The Tom Woods Show

The question I am asking, do we Hate The State?

Do we really?

If so, are we living it?

Interesting youtube videos on various topics affecting us...

Haidt is interesting. You can learn from him without agreeing with him.

Haidt on the psychology behind globalism

Haidt on the disease of political correctness

Peterson is incredibly interesting in his analysis of the great murderous ideologies of the 20th century as being centered in utopianism as an EXCUSE for being murderous, i.e. the goal of the ideologues was destruction and the utopia was the justification.

Peterson's prescription is truth and humility. Truth means speaking without guile -- seeking to accurately express your ideas/thoughts/understanding without manipulation. Humility meaning always being willing to update your model of the world when your existing model proves to be inaccurate. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ascribed the pathological nature of Marxism as the requirement for constant lying in every aspect of life, and the cleansing effects of telling the truth.

Peterson about Slaying Dragons (very interesting)

Peterson about the Necessity of Virtue

Adam Dick with Patriot's Lament

Senior Fellow of the Ron Paul Institute, Adam Dick, joins us for 2 hours of great analysis of what may be coming in the new Trump administration as far as domestic policy is concerned.

Things could go either way, but with rhetoric that Trump has espoused in the campaign, such as "stop and frisk", the likelihood of our Liberties being trampled on seem to be what we can expect.

Check out the Ron Paul Institute, http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org
