Notable Quote – Robert Heinlein

by Skip

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”

“I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

-Robert Heinlein, one of the greatest science fiction writers during the Golden Age of Science Fiction

Most Liberals / Progressives have never understood or accepted the first quote.  I am quite sure that almost NONE of them accept the premise of the second.

(H/T: Gun Owners of America, and GraniteGrok is, in part, named from his book “Stranger in a Strange Land”)

    I’m happy to see any reference to the great sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein, but I find it curious that Groksters don’t recognize Heinlein’s quite explicit and public political persona, represented (IMHO) in his finest non-sci-fi book, published posthumously by his wife in 1992 — before the youngest Tea Partiers were out of their diapers: TAKE BACK YOUR GOVERNMENT! – A Practical Handbook for the private citizen who wants their democracy to work.

    My own 2004 e-book via Amazon, WE THE PEOPLE: A Conservative Populism, can be cosidered either a sequel or companion to Heinlein’s. My 2012 book, A NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION: How “We the People” can truly “take back” their government, is a sequel and companion to both predecessor volumes.
