Liberty Rising: Follow the Youth

youth protest

The kids are going to be alright.

Never mind sky-high global unemployment. Or the looming collapse of the central banking system. Or social and political unrest. Today’s youth are going to make it through just fine.

Why? Because they want to be free.

That’s not to say that there won’t be difficult times ahead. There will be. But the next generation has the one tool that really matters in the upcoming struggle: a yearning to be free.

No matter how bright and sunny the world is, no matter how peaceful and prosperous a society, complacency will be its doom. An unwillingness to take charge of its own world will make a populace slow to respond to the challenges of its time and vulnerable to encroaching tyranny. When a people is of a free spirit, they will not only fight totalitarianism tooth-and-nail. They will also take charge of their existence and build for themselves any future they desire. With that mindset, anything is possible.

Liberty is rising. A bright future awaits. And the youth will lead the charge.
