Liberty in Eclipse


William Norman Grigg, author of the blog Pro-Libertate and the book Liberty in Eclipse: The War on Terror and the Rise of the Homeland Security State, discusses the tragic death of the old American understanding of limited constitutional government under the rule of law: the ever increasing power of the presidency, the case of Jose Padilla, the absurdity of Christians approving of torture, the Milgram torture and Zimbardo prison experiments, the militarization and federalization of American police forces, the brutality and cowardice of the Denver Police Department, the impossibility of living under a republic while maintaining an empire, the horrible War on Drugs and its consequences for liberty and law, our neo-Benthemian surveillance state, the possibility of that most dangerous mix of conscription and military forces deployed in America, and some hope for the future.

  1. This was a great interview. we only have so much time left to educate ourselves and to act. hang in there folks! it will get better with a little help from our Friend!


  2. Still, uncovering the truth about 9-11 may be the only way to conserve what’s left of our liberties…
    Best documented evidence: Suppressed warnings fm FBI investigations of flight schools and fm US allies warning 9-11 was imminent. Failure to follow SOP during the attacks..Air Force and Intelligence war games on 9-11.
    Best theory: The hijackers were themselves hijacked via remote control.
    Best evidence of remote control to steer the 4 planes: Flight 77 went almost 180 degrees into the nearly empty part of the Pentagon..
    Best areas of further investigation ( however unlikely ): The black boxes fm all four planes would confirm or reject remote control theory..Able danger intelligence program.
    Best questions fm 9-11 victims’ family members: http://www.independentcommission.org…also go to http://www.oilempire.us.
    There HAVE been hoaxes surrounding 9-11, and they’re picked-up by people who are inclined to believe the worst about this govt..But, I believe, they have ( for the most part ) been purposely planted..And don’t just screech, “Well, you still got nothin’!”…Is that my fault?

  3. I stand with legendary Bill about the urgent, urgent need to uncover the truth about 9/11. Please watch MISSING LINKS, the video found online.

  4. You are an extremely well informed person, Scott Horton. I have been listening to you for some time now, and find your knowledge impressive. You are clearly an asset to America, and a beacon of light for the American people.

    I, however, think that you could implement a few changes in order to improve what are already significant skills. One of them is your speech. I am going to suggest that you take some speech and diction courses. It would be very simple to improve considerably your already very good verbal skills, and this could get your message across even farther.
