Renewing the American Spirit

Patriot Week begins on 9/11 and ends on 9/17 (the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution (Constitution Day)) and renews America’s spirit by celebrating the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history. Many of current holidays have become overly commercialized or have lost their deeper meaning. We need to invigorate our appreciation and understanding of America’s spirit. This blog is dedicated to keeping the spirit of Patriot Week - and America - alive all year long.....

Freedom of Thought - Battleground of Liberty

"He who endeavors to control the mind by force is a tyrant, and he who submits is a slave." Robert G. Ingersoll.
Although Ingersoll's definition is not complete, it certainly captures a large swath of tyranny and slavery.   History is replete with tyrants who not only compelled action by terror and brutality, but conformity of thought. Pol Pot, Mao, and Stalin are just a few.

When must always be on our to defend liberty against those who want to control what we think - the very essence of liberty.  Freedom is lost not only by the bayonet, but in the most important battlefield, the mind.  Never submit.
