We Need a New Renaissance

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.” - Thomas Jefferson

The first decade of the 21st Century brought a dizzying array of events to the world. September 11th, 2001 was a catalyst for dramatic changes in the United States. Economic and geopolitical turmoil is re-ordering the globe. The prospect of domestic tyranny, under both the Bush and Obama administrations, has forced millions of Americans to re-examine history and become engaged once again in civil society. Endless banker bailouts at the expense of taxpayers is yet another vivid example set before America of the dangers of ever-expanding government. Out of these events the stage is being set for something new to emerge. Current events and economic hardship are causing many people to become more introspective and reflective. What we need is a new renaissance, and indeed this has already been happening organically.
