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

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”     Samuel Adams

Liberty Rock Friday: Another Brick in the Wall, Part II by Pink Floyd

by Stephen Littau

This is one of my all-time favorites. To truly appreciate the message, one needs to see the video (below).

Pink Floyd
Another Brick in the Wall, Part II
The Wall (1979)

By Roger Waters

We don’t need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

We don’t need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

“Wrong, Do it again!”
“If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding. How can you
have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
“You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!”

  1. On that album, ‘In the Flesh’ and ‘Run Like Hell’ are far more disturbing views of a state/cult gone wrong.
