  1. I’m speechless as well, Scott. It was Will, along with his colleague, Bill Jasper, writing in The New American in the mid-90s who were probably the most influential in breaking me out of my mainstream mindset. I’ve read everything Will wrote ever since, whether in his latter years at The New American, his books or his blog, Pro Libertate, and I’ve also listened to all of his podcasts. For the last 10 years, he was the loudest, most unabashed voice against the modern police state. I couldn’t read any of his Pro Libertate writings without getting pissed off. It was hard to read, but it was necessary to read.

    R.I.P. William Norman Grigg
    You will be missed.
