Escaping to an Island

Gus Van Horn has an excellent post up on why one must engage in an intellectual battle for freedom, not simply try to run and hide. I particularly like his closing:
Principles are like maps. If I had to flee an oncoming hurricane, I'd take a good map and a working Model T over a blindfold and a Lamborghini any day. The island-builders are spending too much time ogling fancy technology and ignoring the theoretical basis that makes it -- and their lives as free men -- possible.
