About

The concept for this site largely revolves around a quote taken from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei in 1796:

"...all timid men who prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty..."

In the letter, the ‘timid men’ Jefferson is referring to are government officials:

"the Executive, the Judiciary, two out of three branches of the legislature, all of the officers of the government, all who want to be officers..."

And though it may be taking Jefferson’s quote out of context, I find that his sentiment concerning ‘timid men’ has broad application in many areas of modern life. Our current liberties and freedoms are being challenged on all sides by despots; each individual must choose for themselves whether they will submit to this despotism for the sake of calm, or stand firm and endure the boisterous sea of liberty.

Most battles are fought and lost in populus’ mind long before the physical realities of the loss, if any, are fully realized. This site is dedicated to examining the fight for our minds which is taking place right now, as our religious, intellectual, individual, economic, political and national freedoms are being eroded.
