Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young, and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.”     Robert A. Heinlein

Autocracy is based on the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let’s play that over again too. Who decides?
