This Veterans Day, as a new enemy has arisen whose oppressive ideology of submission is cloaked in religion, it is more important than ever to remember that the preservation of our revolutionary American idea – that the individual is sovereign – is not foreordained. Its survival hinges, as it always has, on its power to bring forth a new generation of veterans who are willing to lay down their lives to protect it.
There is no more time for those who think it will fix itself, putting the burden on others since they haven't the stomach. Sunshine Patriots will be given no quarter.
It requires transparency and checks, not a national-security state.
