If I still sometimes wonder how Rand or Von Mises withstood the days of socialism, I also wonder how today's freedom lovers endure an era in which everything we once touted as a solution to big government is being twisted by governments into an excuse for more centralized power and greater oppression.
This is exactly what I've been pondering on, in my own way--how do those of us who believe in personal freedom and responsibility persevere in this new era of a nascent American Empire? What happens when you make the transformation from citizen to Citizen? Claire Wolfe doesn't have the answers either, but I'm glad to see that others are asking the same sorts of questions.
For me, for now, I'll continue to ponder, to write and to prepare.
