Freedom, at its most sublime, is a state of spirit and mind, a state of being, that far transcends temporal entanglements.

Today Lord Acton would add the wish to be free from the Fascist Mob known as ANTIFA!

Even more than free "from" would be, the free "to" within the bounds of natural law and justice.

Yet, almost all Americans have bought the lie that our republic is a wonderful democracy, an evil form of government where the best organized and largest mob can force everyone to march in lockstep with it.

That has been my motto since a child.  Will I ever be permitted to live my life without asking permission?  The mob can never be enlightened, they act on base passions only.  Giving in to mob mentality is a roller coaster with no end.

Robert, Somewhere in the USA

Byron lived in an awesome age (The Romantics), along with Shelley, Keats, Coleridge, Blake, and Wordsworth. Three of them, my favorite initiates, died so young. Their works will last until eternity, and the sound of their words will vibrate the cosmos.
