I am a student of history, speak Spanish and German, am a soon to be published author, and defend liberty any way I can.
One of the best books that details a true fight for human freedom is the novel Trinity, by Leon Uris. It has helped me get a better understanding of how the monolothic state arises, and the many ways one can fight for freedom.
"America goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will recommend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assumed the colors and usurped the standards of freedom...She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit." - John Quincy Adams
