This is an excellent article,  and very timely in these days of "cancel culture" and oppression. 

I have been saying this for decades.  Speak the truth.  Do not be silenced by opposition.  Call out the false doctrines of the enemies of America.   Let freedom ring.

[Sam Adams} was also instrumental in forming Committees of Correspondence across the colonies that helped shape public opinion into organized action.

 setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.

Quote

He struggled for years to awaken in his fellow colonists a new American identity imbued with a sense of moral purpose and dedicated to the protection of human liberty.  As the American colonies' most ardent arsonist for independence, he never stopped setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.  He lit small fires everywhere, fueled a conflagration, and changed world history forever.

Quote

 Every Biden sticker next to a gas pump reminding Americans of Democrats' war on domestic energy production is a "brushfire."  Every shared video showing crossdressing men stealing victory from female athletes is a "brushfire."  Every email highlighting evidence of 2020 election fraud is a "brushfire."  Every political cartoon mocking the World Economic Forum's "Great Reset" agenda to usher in global communism is a "brushfire."  Every religious gathering protecting the sanctity of life and rejoicing in God is a "brushfire."  Every private conversation calling out "climate change" as a Trojan horse for maximizing State control over the economy is a "brushfire."  Setting small fires wherever you can makes a difference. 

Quote

When you refuse to abide by the State's endless spate of delusions and instead stand for truth, others see that they are not alone.  

Quote

...celebrate how an "irate, tireless minority" is an extraordinarily effective force for change.  When you express yourself with conviction, you are setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of Americans you may never even meet.  Your refusal to conform empowers strangers.  Your refusal to submit weakens the "woke."  Your light enlightens others who wish to be free.  That is the power you command.

Quote

One of the most effective weapons the political left possesses today is its perceived appearance of popular support, when it instead depends entirely on institutional authorities to force its delusions down Americans' throats.  The left's control is a complete and utter charade.  

Quote

The prevalence of the left's worldview, in other words, is an illusion constructed on lies told over and over by people in positions of power, authority, and influence.  When the left's sacred tenets are questioned, belittled, or mocked, their legitimacy unravels quickly. 

Quote

The point is this: when Sam Adams was setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men, he may well have been working against majority opinion in his time.  Those setting brushfires today, however, are already in the majority; they simply have not acted like it in quite some time.  When the people finally wake up to that reality, there is little they cannot overcome.
