The Ballad of Carl Drega: Essays on the Freedom Movement, 1994 to 2001

Rate this book
In a free country, individuals have almost limitless rights -- to travel as they please, carry private arms, consume any plant or drug, keep what they earn, raise their kids as they see fit ... all without showing any license or permit. Bureaucrats have few powers, specifically listed.

But that hardly describes America today, where the default settings fast approach those of a slave state. Bureaucrats claim expansive power and privilege; the rights of the individual are crushed. Carl Drega fought back ... and died. Peter McWilliams fought back ... and died. Garry Watson fought back ... and died. Donald Scott fought back ... and died. ...

Not all their desperate acts were wise or admirable. But Libertarian columnist Vin Suprynowicz insists we should at least start cataloguing and honoring the names of those who have given their lives in this War on Freedom, being waged against us from the lowliest government classroon and "code-enforcement office" to the loftiest temples of Washington. Because we're next. Eight died on that bridge at Concord, back in 1775. How many will it take this time?

Vin is serious about liberty. Probably to a degree that makes most people uncomfortable. I find it refreshing.

I found this book to be thoroughly thought provoking, caustic, humorous, and scholarly.

An anthology, Suprynowicz also provides cutting insight into the state of freedom in America, welfare, schooling, environmentalism, and a host of other topics gathered from his columns, speeches, and correspondence. I'll file a more detailed review as I have time.
