"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain." ~ Frederic Bastiat
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.
