Deeply Rooted Liberty in Americans

October 31st, 2014

I am reading “Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution,” and came across this amazing quotation from General Thomas Gage, Commander of the British Forces in North America, who laid a siege of Boston.

“It was impossible to beat the notion of liberty out of the people as it was rooted in them since childhood.”

I often wonder if the same can be said of other nations, who have been unable to maintain stable democracies, and are prone to never-ending siegesĀ of oppression and tyranny.
