Unrest points up

need for change

Return to Menu

Growing unrest in our society has brought to the forefront
anti-government groups clamoring for more freedom and lower (or no)

Our concern is that far-out fringe groups like Montana's Freemen and
the purported "Republic of Texas" represent a larger group of
responsible citizens who are fed up with government in general, but make
less noise.

Something needs to be done. Something HAS to be done if we are to
continue as a free society. We have turned from independent,
self-sufficient citizens who govern themselves to whiners dependent on
the government for daily sustenance - and all else.

We have chosen to reprint two commentaries published by The Civil
Society Project in Harrisburg, Pa. which define the problem and point to
an answer. If enough citizens read and heed, perhaps the decline and
fall of the Roman Empire (read that United States) can be reversed.

All we can do is try.
