Influences Behind Lord of Columbia: Liberty versus Tyranny

Northern Knights’ Tagline Description: Liberty versus Tyranny

As mentioned in a previous article, I’d already ditched voluntarist colors in favor of creating my own system in my urban fantasy, liberty versus tyranny series, Lord of Columbia. My reason for doing so is simple: I wasn’t about to use Pittsburgh Steelers colors for my protagonists.

 
Sound amateur?

 
Perhaps.

 
But then again, LaVar Ball is what, fifty, and still acts like a teenager? Not to mention, the dude’s kind of well-off.

 
Anyway, you get the picture.

 
But the main message?

 
Liberty versus Tyranny.

 
Patriotism versus Globalism.

 
National Identity versus Global Identity.

 
Voluntarism versus Force.

 
Libertarian Values. Freedom Flames, hence the name of my little blog I have going on here.

 
But it’s more than that.

 
It’s not a history book you’re about to read, come September 1st. No, it’s a new adult, urban fantasy reminiscent of Harry Potter, to an extent. Except the characters are older.We’re in a free region at a university.

 
But trouble lurks on the horizon.

 
A powerful empire is waiting to pounce upon its prey. Such imperialism, seen in the world today, brought on by the United States, the global empire. The global army. Setting up bases in over one-hundred and thirty countries, including developed nations like Europe.

 
Humanitarianism?

 
Don’t make me laugh.

 
Is selling weapons to Saudi Arabia to use on Yemenites humanitarian?

 
Or, is supporting Israel’s continued terrorist attacks on unarmed Palestinians humanitarian?

 
Is conducting secret operations in Niger something a free nation does? Especially when such operations are paid for in tax dollars that makes the rich military-industrial complex richer, and the working and middle class poorer.

 
Liberty versus Tyranny.

 

It’s going to be Northern Knights’ tagline.

 
Because it really is Libertarianism versus Imperialism. The Old, United States Republic versus the Modern-Day United States Empire.

 
The classic tale of Republic versus Empire has taken on a new meaning, because this time, in real time, in real life, the fate of an entire nation is at stake.

 
In both Lord of Columbia, and in real life, the message of liberty, and the principles of liberty cannot, and will not be compromised.

 
I’d like to thank all of my readers for coming across My Freedom Flame, please come back soon.
