If you want to know how we got to where we are

So I’m back on Facebook.  Porcfest pulled me back in since that seems to be the default way to connect.  Jeffrey Tucker should give free accounts for liberty.me to everyone at Porcfest so we can get off Zuckerburg’s platform.  Anyway, with the 4th of July being less than 24 hours away, my feed is filled with flags waving, eagles soaring and quotes / images of the declaration of independence.
So I consider it another incident of synchronicity that in catching up on the podcasts I missed when I was up in the woods of NH last week, that I played Prof. CJ’s Dangerous History show about Shays’ Rebellion today.  I had heard of Shays’ rebellion before, but honestly I had thought it was the same thing as the Whiskey rebellion…there’s government school education for you ;-).  (For those interested, Prof CJ’s most recent show is on the Whiskey Rebellion.  I haven’t listened yet, but plan to tomorrow).
I encourage you to download / stream the podcast.  If you want to understand how we got to where we are, I think it’s more interesting to look at the end of the American war for independence that it is to look at the beginning.
