Wisdom from the past to help you navigate the present.
One Question To Consider
I. If freedom is dear, how must we defend it?
Two From History
I. “Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent.”
Thomas Paine, Common Sense. January 1776
II.“The law become the tool of every kind of avarice, instead of being its check! The law guilty of that very iniquity which it was its mission to punish!”
Claude Frederic Bastiat, The Law. 1850’
Three From Me
I. To identify American greatness you have to talk about American people. Like a plant under the sun, freedom is the nutrient that fosters human flourishing.
II. A free day is a long day with much to do. The health of the body, mind, and spirit, being a good friend, spouse, and parent. Then there is the money to make. All is work that needs to be done, and all is good work that should be done well.
III. A slaves day is short. It degrades man to doing only the basics. Eat, work, sit, and sleep.
Freedom requires vigilance and the best vigilance is learned from the past.
