BEWARE THE TERM “THE NEW NORMAL”.
When free peoples are called upon to sacrifice their liberties for the common good at a time of conflict, whether by nature or man, then prudence is essential. For the longer these people are separated from their liberties the less likely they will be rejoined to them. Freedom is lost when left unguarded.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
“Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.” – John Webbe
