"[M]onopoly profits exist over the long run only when the government guarantees them, as in utilities and cable. And for concentration of market power, no robber baron can hold a candle to the U.S. government.... The hugest concentration of market power in this country does not lie with the likes of Rupert Murdoch or Bill Gates, but with government itself.... No private company, no matter how huge or wealthy, could possibly have as much widespread power over the function of American markets as government does." ~ Brian Doherty
My name’s Michael Fielding, I’ve lived on the Earth through 22 orbits and recently graduated from the University of Texas with a BS in Computer Science. I’ve begun my big adventure, currently living in the Caribbean aboard my boat, Sovereignty. Right now I’m in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and I plan to stay for a few months to really explore the island and the culture.
I’m a full-time thinker and adventurer. I love experiencing new things and new places. I try to see the world as objectively as possible and enjoy writing out my ideas. I also love learning, my interests include economics, philosophy, physics, space, technology and more.
