Thoughts from Maharrey Head #31: Embracing Tyranny

“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”


In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I explain how America has embraced the very tyranny the founding generation fought to reject.

America’s founding generation fought a long, bloody war to free itself from British tyranny. Virtually every American knows this, but very few actually understand what it was about the British system the American colonists objected to. Yes, it had something to do with taxation without representation, but there was an even more fundamental difference between British and American conceptions of proper government.

In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I explain the primary difference between the British system the Americans rejected and the constitutional government they established. Then I show how modern Americans have by-and-large embraced the very system the American colonists rebelled against.
