Ed Brown, Caged For Questioning Ransom, Shares Thoughts

A while ago I wrote to Ed Brown, caged, along with his wife Elaine, for asking for proof that they owed some strangers the money they had earned. Ed wrote me back and his eight-page letter is shared below – not necessarily because I personally am aligned with everything Ed puts-forth, but because:

  • I know his caging to be unjust (he was never accused of harming a person or property not his own, only for failing to comply with the dictates of self-proclaimed “authorities” – something any questioning person should do)
  • his ability to reach and interact with others is limited, and, as he took such a principled stand, wanted to help make sure more folks are aware of his plight and perspective

For daring to question the statist quo, Ed, who is now 72-years-old, is told that he’ll be caged until 2045.

I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. - Voltaire
