We like to think that our liberty today is as pure as it was at the beginning of our nation—even better, many of us think—but we are wrong. Our liberty has been weakened over the past 100 years; we are not as free as our founders intended. We like to think that our liberty is strong and resilient—but we are wrong. Our liberty is extremely fragile and can be gone as swiftly as the next election. We like to think that the only true threats to our liberty are foreign—but we are wrong. The greatest threat to our liberty, to the liberty of any nation, to the liberty of any civilization is always the threat that comes from within.
Over the past 100 years we have traded bits, pieces and more recently, large blocks of our liberty for government promises to take care of our financial, educational, safety, health and other daily needs. All we have to show for this trade is an illusion of a government-provided safety net that is no more real than a chimerical siren call. Unfortunately, as a nation we have altered how we view the role of government in our lives. As a result, we now find ourselves on the brink of self-imposed tyranny. The Democratic Party, with control of both our Congressional and Executive branches of government, is now trying to consolidate power further—and attempting to do so with complete disregard for the will of the American people. They are pushing a progressive agenda behind the false flag of social justice, an agenda that will financially enslave our children, our grandchildren and generations to come. America as we know it will be relegated to the darkest corner of history.
The only way to prevent them from succeeding is for the people to be educated on how we have gotten to this point; to know what it really means to be a people of liberty; to appreciate what our founders intended for our nation.
Author Robert Allen Bonelli has written a treatise on liberty that is different from most currently published works on the subject. It is a modern-day Common Sense, educating the reader to the potential threat to American liberty in a reasoned but passionate way. He pulls together relevant American history; a review of societal structures and philosophies; the Constitution; our nation's financial challenges; individual values; a clear and historically supported presentation of the threat to liberty from within; and positive peaceful solutions to the vanquishing the threat. As he writes near the close of his work, "We are a people of liberty who have awakened to see our liberty threatened; who have joined the battle and are ready to defend our liberty." He concludes with these words, "When we acknowledge the sacrifice of so many throughout our history and allow their sacrifice to inflame a passion for freedom that will burn forever, then we will stand together, looking out over a free world made safer by this great nation and we will all admire the brilliant light of liberty rising."
