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

““The real damage is done by those millions who want to ’survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.””     Sophie Scholl

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

It seems Timmy Geithner can’t sell his house in this market… So he’s renting it out.

“Careful attention has been paid to the design of every feature of this sophisticated home,” according to the listing.

Hopefully more careful than the attention he paid to his taxes.

  1. Strangely I find this humorous, though I really can’t put my finger on why …

  2. Is this blog the Brad W. Show now?

  3. The Liberty Papers is indeed occasionally the Brad W. show. Works for me.

  4. Once upon a time, I owned this blog. One day I retired from blogging and Brad W kindly took it over and kept it going for me. So, it can be the Brad W show if that is what he wants it to be!

    That’s a fairly ironic bit of news, thanks for a good chuckle Brad.

  5. Well, this blog isn’t the “Brad W” show… But as none of us consider blogging to be our day job, we tend to ebb and flow regarding content. There was a long time where this blog was pretty much the “Doug M” show, because the rest of us were very busy and he had extra time to post…

    This week, I probably shouldn’t have posted as much as I did. I just kept seeing things I couldn’t restrain myself from!

  6. Must have called the “Design to Sell” crew.
    I don’t know if accountants are as effective.
