Jefferson On Freedom


"Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem."


Roughly translated as "I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery," the phrase was used by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to James Madison, on January 30, 1787. I find it quite applicable today considering the current anti-gun, anti-freedom movement being fostered on our nation by the weak and ignorant, only some of which are actually children.

I'm sure the phrase is doubly triggering for today's snowflake generation, since they also find this Founding Father to be offensive to their sensitive natures.

  1. Thomas Jefferson was the closest thing to a libertarian among the Founders. He appeared to truly want everyone to just leave everyone else alone. Would that we were still listening to him.

    1. There is so much history lost on the snowflakes.
