The lost love of Liberty...

Stephen Littau, a fearless philosopher, has a patriotic post that balances national pride with the libertarian ideal.
…we have strayed too far from the ideals that made this country what it is today. When we take our Independence Day holiday in a few weeks, let us all spend at least a moment to reflect on the wisdom of Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and all of the brave men who dared to declare independence from the paternalistic, tyrannical policies of King George. After taking the time to ponder that, ask yourself the question: “What can I do to bring reason, individual liberty, and the pursuit of science and technology back to the forefront of the American debate?”
Now go forth and read the post in its entirety, along with the other thoughts at Fearless Philosophy for Free Minds.
