Wild Fact About Me I am an anarchist.
My Philosophy Human beings are inherently peaceful, cooperative and generous. It's when we try to impose our will on each other that disharmony arises.
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would never be a mayor, governor or president because I am opposed to hierarchy in all forms.
What/who changed my life and why The Freedom Manifesto by Tom Hodgekinson, because I began to clearly see the destructive, violent nature of our capitalist system. Several years ago, The Chalice & the Blade by Riane Isler and The Values of Belonging by Carol Flinders opened my eyes to the possibility of gentle, cooperative human societies.
What Bugs Me cars, wal-mart, shopping malls, arrogance, over-consumption, wastefulness, factory farms, Animal Cruelty, littering  
Passions Lake Michigan, plants, trees, flowers, my kitty cats, my lovely daughter, anarchy, swimming, the written word  
Inspirations
