"[T]here are, at bottom, basically two ways to order social affairs, Coercively, through the mechanisms of the state -- what we can call political society. And voluntarily, through the private interaction of individuals and associations -- what we can call civil society. ... In a civil society, you make the decision. In a political society, someone else does. ... Civil society is based on reason, eloquence, and persuasion, which is to say voluntarism. Political society, on the other hand, is based on force." ~ Ed Crane
I am still learning how chaotic things actually are. I am still believing how wonderful things actually will be.
Biology: As far as I know, I have 23 pairs of chromosomes in each of my living cells.
Biography: I was born in Nebraska. I am living and working in Georgia. I am a Christian and it is my personal choice (which is one of the things I love about libertarianism and anarchism.) I have a degree in psychology but my best education always seems to come from daily experience. I have a wife who is my best friend, three awesome dogs and two strange but neat stepdaughters.
Some of my interests are kayaking, camping, hiking, cooking, photography, singing, and traveling.
