"[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 the co-editor (along with economist Fred Foldvary) of a blog on libertarianism. I like beautiful women, reading, running, writing, and the like. Pleasure to meet you.
I was born in Provo, Utah. Raised in the gold-laden hills of northern California. Just got out of Santa Cruz and moved on down to Los Angeles last summer ('11).
I barely graduated from high school. I study anthropology and accounting at a school here in LA. I've lived in Ghana for three months with an anthropologist and spent another three months (though not simultaneously) bumming around the seedy parts of Europe.
