Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
Still recovering from the trip so posting will probably commence tomorrow. My reading while in Florida was Martin Amis' "Koba the Drea : Laughter and the 20 Million". Anyone who thinks the Soviets were not so bad and that Castro, Mugabe and those like them are admirable should be required to read this book. I would require Solzhenitsyn but The Gulag Archipelego is a bit long (at 1800 pages). Amis does a fine job bringing together the writings of Solzhenitsyn and the other Soviet dissident writers and tying them in with his own thoughts, life and recollections.
