About Me Self-styled anarchist traveler and arm-chair permaculturalist. I come from a long line of progressive types and am constantly influenced by the world around me. Combine that with my love of philosophy (existentialism most of all) and ongoing desire to absorb as much knowledge as possible and I think it makes a pretty well-rounded individual. Or so my Mom says...

Wild Fact About Me I have always loved the outdoors. Backpacking, camping, hiking, you name it, I like it wild.
My Philosophy You are always in control of your own life and how the world around you affects your emotions and perceptions. However, there is a lot of stuff in this world which is designed to hinder the human beings potential, I aim to correct that...
What Gives Me Hope My progressive friends, and the love I receive from my girlfriend.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Abolishing my position as ruler.
What/who changed my life and why "What is Anarchism" by Emma Goldman and "Eco-Socialism" by David Pepper. I read them both right after I became completely disillusioned with Marxism and the "new left." Those novels, along with most anarchist philosophy I have read since, seemed to crystallize all my frustrations and desires for a greater existence. Since my introduction to Anarchism, I have never looked back.

Passions Nature and Wildlife, Philosophy, Public Education, Direct Action

Quotation Not the favorite, but one of many I like:

"It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second."
