 One of the greatest songs of all time. Find the Cost of Freedom.


Sighs, knowing this is akin to shouting into a wind tunnel.

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. ~ Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981.

People never give up their liberties but under some delusion. ~ Edmund Burke, speech at County Meeting of Bucks, 1784

For every man who lives without freedom, the rest of us must face the guilt. ~ Lillian Hellman, The Watch on the Rhine

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, inaugural address, Jan. 20, 1953

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. ~ Abraham Lincoln, letter to H.L. Pierce, Apr. 6, 1859

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. ~ William Pitt, speech, Nov. 18, 1783

The worst way to defend our freedom is to let our leaders start taking away our freedoms! It is exactly during times like these [a national crisis] that we need more freedom of speech, a strong and critical press, and a citizenry that is not afraid to stand up and say that the emperor has no clothes. ~ Michael Moore, Stupid White Men

Ignorance may be bliss, but it certainly is not freedom, except in the minds of those who prefer darkness to light and chains to liberty. The more true information we can acquire, the better for our enfranchisement. ~ Robert Hugh Benson, Intellectual Slavery

Freedom is the basic condition for you to touch life, to touch the blue sky, the trees, the birds, the tea, and the other person. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames

Freedom can be preserved only if it is treated as a supreme principle which must not be sacrificed for particular advantages. ~ Friedrich Hayek, Law, Legislation and Liberty

True freedom is always spiritual. It has something to do with your innermost being, which cannot be chained, handcuffed, or put into a jail. ~ Osho, Freedom: The Courage to Be Yourself

If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too. ~ W. Somerset Maugham, Strictly Personal

Individual liberty is individual power, and as the power of a community is a mass compounded of individual powers, the nation which enjoys the most freedom must necessarily be in proportion to its numbers the most powerful nation. ~ John Quincy Adams, letter to James Lloyd, Oct. 1, 1822

The truth shall make you free. ~ Jesus, John 8:31

Proving one's freedom will often mean insisting on the most arbitrary, odd, unrepeatable aspects of one's behavior. ~ Ermanno Bencivenga, Freedom: A Dialogue

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either. ~ Mark Twain, Following The Equator

The free man is he who does not fear to go to the end of his thought. ~ Leon Blum, quoted in Webster's Quotations, Facts and Phrases

No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other fastened about his own neck. ~ Frederick Douglass, speech, Oct. 1883

Without freedom there can be no morality. ~ Carl Jung, Two Essays on Analytical Psychology

Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end. ~ John Dalberg-Acton, The History of Freedom in Antiquity

Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract

Can this be happiness, this terrifying freedom? ~ Albert Camus, Caligula
And now, folks, for what is going on today!

  1. Most surrendered their freedom a long time ago. When we succumb to the tyranny of our own passions, it is a given that we will be easily manipulated by the people and situations in our lives. When we cede what little control we have to the lower elements of our own being, the rest is a given, although it does not always play out in as ugly a fashion as it is right now on a worldwide scale.
