As you read this I am revamping this site. For the most part I want it to become more anonymous for me and a venue for more personal and introspective thoughts.
To that end most of the political post from the past are disappearing as you read this if not already gone. There are a few exceptions, things I feel very strongly about, particularly foreign policy, enough to establish my libertarian views and my general contempt for government. My views are best summed up by the anarchocapitalists at Mises.org. I consider myself a voluntarist. I am not opposed to the idea or “public” government, pre se, but to the idea of a coercive monopoly where I am compelled to support and fund actions I find abhorrent and thoroughly evil. If you support a particular government policy you have my full acknowledgment of your right to do so. You may contribute as much of your money, time and effort in the advance of your cause as you choose. All I ask is the same acknowledgment and tolerance of my disagreement. Should I disagree with a policy or action of the government I should be as free to withhold my money, time and effort as you are to lend yours. If I cannot withhold my consent I am not free to give it. I say all this to say this is my political position, don’t be surprised if it informs my thinking in other areas.
This is my position, but this will not be the place to dwell on that. This will be for other sides of me even as who me is is eradicated.
