"What shall be done with the four million slaves if they are emancipated? ... Primarily, it is a question less for man than for God -- less for human intellect than for the laws of nature to solve. It assumes that nature has erred; that the law of liberty is a mistake; that freedom, though a natural want of the human soul, can only be enjoyed at the expense of human welfare, and that men are better off in slavery than they would or could be in freedom; that slavery is the natural order of human relations, and that liberty is an experiment. What shall be done with them? Our answer is, do nothing with them; mind your business, and let them mind theirs. Your doing with them is their greatest misfortune. They have been undone by your doings, and all they now ask, and really have need of at your hands, is just to let them alone. They suffer by every interference, and succeed best by being let alone." ~ Frederick Douglass

I am Dylan Delikta
Born and raised in the Metro Detroit area of Michigan
Aside from writing and reading, I enjoy playing and writing music; mainly for guitar and occasionally for the saxophone.
I read into a lot of philosophy, economics, psychology, and a variety of other topics, mainly because it is a direct way to teach myself about the issues of the world.
My favorite place in the world is Interlochen, MI, where my family and friends go to camp every summer.
I am considered and also claimed to something called Straight Edge (don't drink, don't smoke, don't partake in drugs). It's roots are from the hardcore-punk genre of music, and I feel that the Positive Straight Edge ideals are similar to libertarianism.
I see myself as an Educator in the future, or some kind of mentor. Though I went to public school, I have unschooled myself and would like to mentor others in the unschooling fashion as well.
