George Washington once said, “Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.” In order to grow, plants need food. And so each week, Liberty Nation plans to give you some ideological food for thought as we feature a few websites that you should experience and read. These sites span the entire liberty spectrum, and whether you agree with them or not, they are most certainly worth a peek as well as bookmarking to read again later. We also encourage you to point us to websites you’re reading below in our comments section. So here are the two that top LN’s list this week:
Virginia Freemen’s Society: This particular site is always an interesting read, whether you decide to espouse his particular take on things or not. Authored by a man who goes by the nom de plume of Jesse James, VFS delves into a number of liberty concepts, some thought-provoking, some even a bit disturbing — but all worth seeing for yourself. From his latest piece, “The Coming Retribution:”
The most dangerous element of a worldview or social construct that rejects any sort of absolute truth and instead bases it on subjective experience and emotions is the lack of internal restraint. Show me a society without absolute moral standards and I will show you a society where life is worthless, rule of law is nonexistent, knowledge is dead and [Thomas] Hobbes is an optimist…We have an opportunity to communicate, learn and develop community in a relatively free environment at the moment. It is the height of foolishness to believe that this will always be the case. Whether you were a never-Trump person or not, the bear was poked squarely in the eye. The bear is not dead and we should be cognizant of the fact that it now is extremely angry.
Interesting, even if unsettling. We highly encourage you to read the whole article.
Second on our list this week is Defensive Training Group. DTG, as it’s known to its many and loyal readers, is a place where citizens can get two things — information on happenings affecting their liberty, and training on how to preserve those freedoms. Run by a military veteran with many years’ experience in a variety of critical skills, DTG brings both solid training and solid articles, written from the perspective of someone who’s been there and done that. One of his latest offerings, interestingly enough, talks about modern-day Christianity’s trend toward the left, and the fascinating — yet potentially deadly — long term effects of that shift. Pulled from another site that we’ll be featuring in coming weeks, the article talks about the need for Americans to understand that even Christianity itself is not immune to leftist infiltration.
Modern Christianity has bought into feminist philosophy. While it doesn’t advocate for blue-haired harpies, it still pushes a leveling of husband and wife. It gives lip service to honoring motherhood but really embraces the idea of careerism for women. And modern Christian leaders would fight the return of patriarchy with as much vigor as the most extreme intersectional feminist.When it comes to immigration from the third world, modern Christianity is even worse. Rather than calling for sane immigration policy where nations are permitted to have sovereign borders, it calls for Western nations to drop all border controls and admit everyone, even if they harbor an intense hatred of the West. Minor measures, like deporting criminal illegals, are stridently resisted.
Other must-read items from DTG include such topics as his “2018 Election Countdown Update: DTG’s 20 Month Plan to Prepare for a Democratic Retaking of the House and Senate,” in which the author lays out an individualized contingency plan for the possible takeover of the Congress by Democrats in the next election. As the saying goes, it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
Be sure to tune in next week for new freedom-loving sites you should know about. Let us know in the comments section what your thoughts are on these sites — as well as other sites we should know about. If you know of a liberty-loving site we should be featuring, tell us!
And don’t ever forget these inspiring words from President John Adams:
