The fight for liberty will always be hard.
There is a story about a guy who took on a very physically imposing fellow who was well armoured and well armed. The guy's sponsor weighed him down with armour and weapons. The guy could barely move, let alone fight. So the guy shucked the gear, set out with his own improvised weapon, took the fellow down, and capped him using his own sword.
We who wish to advance liberty may need to learn from that story.
