Patrick Henry for the 21st Century

From my Facebook page:

Capitalism and individualism made America great. Progressivism, starting under Woodrow Wilson and climaxing under Biden, destroyed America. But there’s always hope. We know what works, and what doesn’t. After America, the choice will always be clear: freedom and prosperity, or control and stagnation. Going forward, all people need to do is think — and have courage.

It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope and pride. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

– Patrick Henry, Speech given at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia (March 23, 1775)
