Some are yelling and others, they say, are just apathetic. Whichever the case, can anyone sense that things can or will really straighten out anytime soon? We all know we are in trouble, whether we are quiet about it, or loquacious.

There are plenty of reasons that can be ascribed to the present difficulties. There is particularly one that is certainly not adequately addressed. Simply put,  we will not have liberty because we know not how to have it. We just do not want to know that we do not know what liberty looks like. In fact, we are so far removed from it that we hardly know it really exists. Those who claim otherwise, likely deal in absurdities.

The knowledge of liberty has been lost; intentionally removed. We shall not be relieved of the present difficulties until we want badly enough to find that knowledge again and pay the price of freedom. The knowledge we lack has always been the same  and unchanging prescription.
