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.
Imagine being watched by cameras hidden in the backs of every seat and listened to by sensitive microphones throughout the duration of your flight. According to the SmartMobs.com article in the title link, this may soon become a reality:
Scientists from Britain and Germany are spending £25 million to develop a system they hope will make it virtually impossible to hijack an airliner by providing pilots and cabin crew with an early warning system. They say rapid eye movements, blinking excessively, licking lips or ways of stroking hair or ears are classic symptoms of somebody trying to conceal something.
A separate microphone will record speech, including whispers; Islamic suicide bombers whisper texts from the Koran in the moments before they explode bombs.
Although this seems hard to believe, given the U.K.'s love of police-controlled cameras and considering that I found this same story on a number of blogs and news sites, it might actually be true. If it does happen, I suspect it will cause more problems than it solves. Will a Muslim who is afraid of flying be flagged as a terrorist if he/she mutters a prayer under their breath on takeoff? How many privacy activists will create false hits by blinking and whispering just to protest the system?
