    Most of us that studied (actual) history in high school knows the story of how our Constitutional Republic came to be. According to history, the Colonists in Boston were tired of paying exorbitant taxes to King George for basic things such as tea and other necessities. They were tired of living under the thumb of the monarchy with hardly (if any at all) representation, and simply put, it was tough times back in 1775 in New England. Today, he would be called a “right-wing loon.” Today, he would be labeled as an insurrectionist, purveyor of tin-foil-hat messages, and likely be...

    You might be, as I am, alarmed about the future of liberty. How deep are the roots of liberty when so many submit to authoritarian measures in response to COVID, and approve the use of coercion against those less eager to comply? Unable to visualize alternatives, public acceptance of top-down coercive solutions to COVID demonstrates a willingness to sacrifice liberty for the promise of safety. To restore liberty, our understanding of liberty needs to deepen. The prolific author and educator Leonard Read is most famous for his timeless essay “I, Pencil.” In one of his earlier works, Students of Liberty,...

    What are “Positive Rights”? There is much talk regarding “rights” and how they relate to freedom and liberty. If you’re wondering, “what are positive rights,” and why should I care? We’ll explain what they are and some of the fundamental issues that many people have with this ideology. Positive Rights Definition A positive right is one that requires others (namely the government) to provide you with either a good or service. They do so by taking away another individuals’ rights. Positive right issues start to arise when these infringe on the fundamental human rights of others by requiring them to...
  • In El Salvador, the President Cracks Down on Civil Liberties, and Is Beloved for It

    TONACATEPEQUE, El Salvador — It has been four weeks since the shoemaker vanished from his hometown, hauled away in handcuffs by Salvadoran police.The family of the man, Heber Peña, 29, has gathered business receipts and signatures from clients to prove he makes his money honestly. They fear he is now stuck in an overcrowded prison, accused of being a gang member. Even so, the cobbler’s family still sees the benefits of the police crackdown that led to his arrest — and admires the leader behind it. “Apart from this,” said Caleb Peña, Heber’s brother, “everything the president has done is...

    Sometimes a mask is so completely torn away that only the willfully and ideologically blind or the stupid cannot see what the real game is. Frank Bruni of the New York Times kindly provided those who desire to see with such an opportunity with his own Two Minutes Hate against Florida's protection of 5- to 9-year-olds from groomers. The gist and heart of Bruni's tirade is that in this latest incarnation of the culture war, too much emphasis has been put on "parental rights." Public schools, he emphasizes, don't exist "as some bespoke service attending to the material wants and...

    Fox News host Mark Levin explained what "America first" means to him, Sunday, by debunking the notion that our founders were "nationalists." The "Life, Liberty & Levin" host said how the word "nationalist" cannot be found in our founding documents because the founders and framers "believed in Americanism," guided by "natural law and rights," not nationalism" or "populism." "The Tenth Amendment rejects nationalism. It’s federalism. Talks about state sovereignty. Why do we have a Ninth Amendment? Have you read that one lately? It talks about individual liberty, it is in my view, a reflection of the Declaration. They put it...

    A federal judge in Cincinnati granted a temporary order this week blocking Air Force action against 18 service members including 11 who currently or recently served at Wright-Patterson in Dayton who are fighting the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. A federal judge in Cincinnati is stopping Air Force action against 18 servicemembers fighting the COVID-19 vaccine including 11 who currently or recently served at Wright-Patterson in Dayton. The servicemembers sued earlier this year over the denial of religious accommodations for refusing shots. The First Amendment and Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) does, in fact, apply to the military, contrary to...

    I do not write this article to throw stones. I write it to save lives. That’s why I make this heartfelt (and anguished) plea: If you are a pastor or ministry leader and you believe that, according to the Bible, you have the liberty to drink alcohol (without drunkenness), please don’t turn that liberty into a public boast, as in, “Look at how free I am!” You can enjoy that freedom before God, with moderation and discipline. But please don’t bash those who practice total abstinence. And please don’t use your liberty as a club against legalism. Or as a...

    As all government, in its essence, is organized exploitation, and in virtually all existing forms it is an implacable enemy of every industrious and well-disposed man.In theory, it invades his liberty and collars his money only in order to protect him, but in truth it always makes a stiff profit on the exchange. That profit represents the income of the professional politicians, nine-tenths of whom are simply professional rogues. They employ a great many technicians to carry on the ostensible functions of government, and some of those technicians are honorable and competent men, but the politicians themselves are seldom either....

    The Oregonian ^ | March 6, 2022 | by Aaron and Melissa Klein
    For nine years, the state of Oregon pursued our family and our little bakery, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, because we could not in good conscience create a custom cake celebrating a same-sex wedding. Over the years, the state deprived us of a fair hearing, erroneously issued an injunction limiting what we could say, improperly ordered us to pay $135,000, and violated our rights to freely exercise our beliefs. In early 2013, Aaron welcomed two potential customers, a woman and her mother, into our bakery as we welcome everyone. When he found out they were looking for someone to create a...

    'I’ve called for Canada to be put on that list, and I think we need to consider all of the options that are available.'(LifeSiteNews) – Republican U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said that Canada needs to be put on a list of nations that are “religious liberty violators” due to the continued jailing of Canadian Christian pastor Artur Pawlowski. “The United States keeps a designation of folks who are religious liberty violators,” Hawley said to Rebel News at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida this past weekend, after being asked about Pawlowski. “I’ve called for Canada...

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) said Sunday that Americans should treat each other with "civility and respect" as individuals make different decisions for themselves on whether or not they wear a face covering. Asked by host Sandra Smith on "Fox News Sunday" if he thinks recent moves by blue states to ease masking requirements were confusing given contradictory views from the White House and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Polis pointed out that the federal government is just issuing recommendations and is not mandating masks. "In Colorado, we haven't had a statewide mass requirement for close to a...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois judge has issued a temporary restraining order that prevents school districts statewide from requiring students to wear masks in classrooms, saying Gov. J.B. Pritzker overstepped his legal authority with a mask mandate that has angered many parents and teachers alike. In a ruling issued Friday in response to a lawsuit filed by a group of parents and teachers, Sangamon County Circuit Judge Raylene Grischow also determined that several more of Pritzker’s emergency orders to combat the spread of COVID-19, including one issued last year that mandates vaccinations for school employees, are “null and...

    During the late Middle Ages jousting and sacking and pillaging were the normal activities of the day. 1346 was just a normal year and Europe was involved in another of its perpetual wars with the English invading France and others taking up sides. It was the year after Botticelli was born and right in the heart of the careers of Donatello and Titan. There was however one event in 1346 that makes it stand out like no other year in human history. It was the year the Black Death started. The Black Death was a bubonic plague that struck Europe,...
