What is the light from above? What is the guiding light for America, the one that helped us escape the dark bindings of tyranny? Liberty. The right to pursue virtue and do what one ought. It was the “American Enlightening.”

Licentiousness, the chasing of pleasure that modern man often confuses with liberty, is not the “light from above.” It’s a pernicious way of living that enslaves one to one’s passions. It won’t lead us out of tyranny but rather into the darker and darker trappings of degeneracy. Drug use, sexual deviancy, and sloth aren’t the results of liberty, they’re the result of licentious living.

Study true liberty, doing what one ought. It’s the light that can and should guide us and, if we use it to do what we ought, the future of America is quite bright.
