Reader comments about this quote:
The nation's statists, who were resoundingly unsuccessful in their efforts to foment an American rendering of the October Revolution during the 1930's, discovered in Franklin Roosevelt a particularly effective effector of the advancement of their collectivist agenda.

Their incrementalist, Gramscian, approach has proven to be a fearsomely efficacious one, as they continue, with Stakhanovite dedication to, as Lenin expressaed it: " Slice the Bologna."
 -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Perhaps the longest running racket in history is the 'lord-servant' hierarchy in which everyone has a lord to obey and some have servants to command.  The seminaries trained 'leaders' to whom the common people would be beholden as authorities.  You were to 'know your place.'

    Prior to the American Declaration of Independence, every person was considered a subject and property of the Crown under the protection of some 'lord.'  Adams referred to the real revolution to be that of the American Mind in which the common man was master of his own house and property and not subject to the whims of men who claim to be their 'lords.'

    What is the difference between the answers coming from a free man and a slave to the question "Who am I?"  Most slaves will answer the same way, whereas a free person has limitless possibilities.

    Tyranny dictates the answer to the questions "Who am I?  What is the purpose of (my) life?"  Hence government 'education' to impress upon the individual to become an obedient 'worker' also known as 'taxpayers' to squeeze.  While little by little people can be indoctrinated, the break from the hypnosis can be instantaneous.  The truth sets one free from the bondage of a lie.  To Make America Great Again, perhaps we will see a rebirth of the American Mind.  ;-)

    Most notably, since the advent of the War Between the States, inch by inch, minute by minute - tyranny has slithered in, exponentially replacing even the smallest concepts of liberty, inalienable rights and religion other than the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its national establishment of religion.

    The "New(Spiritual)Creature", male nor female, is contrary to any type of oppression. A true Patriot "knows" they have been freed. Well codified. America is in good hands. Most Christian religious orders seek to block the truth concerning Real Liberty and Freedom. if only they had the Guts. But, there is and has Always been a Core ministry, maintaining the cause. not in word, but in Power. The Creator is well aware of His garden. Hence the movement world wide. The Flame has Never Gone Out ! even with the cats around.
