About This Author

What should I say? hmmm

I'm rather "live and let live" so far as both politics, economics, and lifestyle is concerned. I fall somewhat into the left-Libertarian sphere, and base much of my personal philosophy on the non-aggression principle. I believe in small government, and cooperative and peaceful interaction/conflict resolution between nations.

Government/corporate/religious intrusion into our lives is far too prevelant, even in liberal Western nations. Totalitarianism (communism, fascism, theocracy) is always unacceptable tyranny. I am very cynically disposed toward current concepts/realities of government itself in general.

Rights should be equal for all people - irregardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, ideologicial beliefs (and etc.). We must oppose any such discrimination and oppression.

There is a wide misunderstanding of and confusing regarding the terms globalism and globalization which has encouraged exploitation and abuse on an international scale. Globalism is interconnectivity between nations without interdependence or homogenization. Globalization is interconnectivity between nations with interdependence and homogenization. In short, globalism = good, globalization = bad. It is safe to observe that a free and fair maket cannot co-exist with corporatism.

I am personally very interested in sovereign rights. Not artificial state or corporate rights: but those of the individual, and of historic ethnic communities to self-determination and survival. I am a supporter and advocate of indigenism. Pseudoethnicism is intolerable; in my opinion artificial multi-ethnic states are an untenable and oppressive social experiment.

I support and promote the Code of Honor and User Agreement as a means to further rational and civil conduct/conversation here at Newsvine.

I strongly feel that all of us, regardless of our nationality, have the right to comment upon both international issues and social issues irregardless of origin that have an impact upon all of us - if even only as an ideological influence.

Last but not least - I try to keep an open mind.

Wow, that's a lot more than I'd originally intended to say.

What else would you like to know?
