What is FREEDOMTAKER ?
In addition to being a depository of free download documents, this web site is a reminder of how important it is for every individual in society to “take”, to actively claim, protect and defend the freedoms he or she values.
This individual commitment has continuously faded and fallen to neglect from the very moment the cannons were silenced at the end of our Revolutionary War in 1776.
The term “FREEDOMTAKER” comes from the idea that freedom is never given, but inherent and resident in the individual if the individual is willing to protect his/her rights, powers and freedoms against constant attacks, denials and temptations.
The idea that freedom can be granted or that it is a “benefit of citizenship” is based on defective logic. Anything that is granted to you by someone else is not your freedom because someone apart from you is controlling the granting of it.
The only true freedom is that which you imagine, take and protect for yourself. If you look to someone else for your freedom you are demonstrating that you do not understand what freedom is. While theoretically, someone can grant you freedom, that rarely happens. Why would someone give up their power and wealth so you can be free? Freedom is almost always taken, not given.
