I am an atheist, since at least 11th grade. I think that every thing is connected, but that there is no intelligence controlling things. Before I researched Anarchy, I found that libertarianism fit my views best. But I am liking the idea of limiting or eliminating hierarchies, whether they be financial, power, social, or political.
I call it flattening the hierarchy.
Market Anarchy and Mutualism seem interesting to me. All the debate here about property rights, personal rights, banks and capitalism have given me lots to think about.
I am a 45 year Mountain Biker and am Married w/o children living in New Jersey. Grew up in Minnesota. I like guns and bows and 4x4s. But mostly I ride my bicycles. I play the mandolin BARELY, I like to listen to good players more.
I'll try not to incur the wraith of Franc
You got that right. You see, according to Cockteau's plan, I'm the enemy because I like to think. I like to read, I'm into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I'm the kind of guy that could sit in a greasy spoon and wonder gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs or the side order of gravy fries. I want high cholesterol. I would eat bacon and butter and buckets of cheese. OK. I want to smoke Cuban cigars the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section. I want to run through the streets naked with green Jell-O all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why, because I might suddenly feel the need to. OK? Pal, I've seen the future. Know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his pajamas, sipping a banana-broccoli shake, singing 'I'm the Oscar Meyer wiener'. You live up top, you live how he wants. Your other choice: come down here and maybe starve to death.
