An expression of personal freedom designed to educate people about the meaning and importance of freedom and personal responsibility. Topics will include current events, historical analysis, gun control and firearms rights, education, politics and more. I write in support of freedom lest darkness fall upon our society in the form of dwindling rights, apathy and oppression.
I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

Books I Am Reading
A Feast For Crows This latest installment of Gearge R. R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series isn't quite as gripping as the previous books but is still a pretty good read.
Phantom Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.
Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed A follow up to Guns, Germs, and Steel that explains the geographic, environmental and socio-economic reasons that can cause civilizations and communities to collapse.
The title link is to an RSS aggregate feed that will give you the most recent articles from a collection of Libertarian blogs.
If you'd like to see who made the feed and why, visit them at Zebbyfeeds.
If all goes well, I hope to have this blog added to their feed.
For those less tech savvy folks out there: Most blogs have a "Subscribe to this page" sort of link, such as those in the "Subscribe to Lest Darkness Fall" section on the left of this page. This lets people with simple feed-reader programs or online services automatically monitor a blog for changes and retrieve newly published articles from that page. Such tools let you view all of the newly published material from all of the sites that you are subscribed to from a single location, much like how you view all of your email messages from various people by opening a single program or viewing a single web page. This saves you from having to visit each of your favorite sites just to see if they contain any new content.
It this technology interests you, consider using a free online service such as Bloglines, or use the "Live Bookmark" feature built into the Mozilla Firefox web browser. My Yahoo, Google Reader, My AOL and various other well known free web service providers also offer similar functionality.
