Once in a while I run across something or someone that puts me on the alert that I’ve just made a very worthwhile discovery, and I’m pleased to report that this find exceeded my expectations.
I’m referring to Hannah Hoffman, a young lady who I find myself envying not only for her musical skills, but her solid commitment to the cause of liberty. It’s so unfair; I was close to twice her age before I was as solidly grounded in my own principles as she clearly is today!
I’ll introduce you to Hannah as I was introduced to her, via a YouTube video that Jeff Berwick of The Dollar Vigilante linked to this past weekend. As Jeff says, Hannah “…has that artsy look and she is creative and talented – so many of the traits normally associated with liberal artists but don’t be fooled by her age or appearance, she’s a talented artist who’s a serious activist in the cause of freedom.”
How can anyone who’s familiar with the sinister Prussian-inspired public ‘education’ in America not love a line like
“You’re trusting the state to fill your child’s plate
With mindless facts and information they regurgitate…”
in the lyrics of this song?
Intrigued, I followed the supplied kinks to Hannah’s web site, which is a thoughtfully designed place where a visitor can read her writings, download and listen to her music, and explore her doings in the liberty community. She’s written jingles and theme songs for others along with her own creations and isn’t afraid to stand by her convictions out in the real world. Seeing this, I wasn’t too surprised to find that just one of her colleagues is the equally bright and articulate Stephanie Murphy, whose skills as a journalist and freedom activist have inspired me for several years now, and whose efforts as an ongoing advocate for liberty are laudable.
I hope you’ll enjoy Ms. Hoffman’s work as much as I have. There are plenty of surly, self-centered, poorly educated people out there, (as I lamented in my earlier piece here ‘I’m So Bored‘ as well as my recent article for the American Daily Herald, ‘Dumberer and Dumberest’) so encountering someone like Hannah who’s the diametric opposite of these types is a genuine pleasure. People like her are the best hope for our future, especially when they’ve accomplished so much so early, and they deserve to be held in high esteem.
Bravo, Hannah…you’ve got your work cut out for you!
