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

“People constantly speak of the government doing this or that, as they might speak of God doing it. But the government is really nothing but a group of men, and usually they are very inferior men. They may have some better man working for them, but they themselves are seldom worthy of any respect.”     H. L. Mencken

Quotes To Ponder

by Adam Selene

Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them — and then, the opportunity to choose.

– C. Wright Mills

When liberty is taken away by force it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default it can never be recovered.

– Dorothy Thompson
