"No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it." ~ Thomas Sowell
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.
