"The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it." ~ George Bernard Shaw
I came from an abusive family of Christian republican sheeple. I caught hell at home and at school. While I was attending school, I never fit in with the other students. I was also forced to wear 20 year out of fashion clothes during my elementary school years. I grew up believing that something was very wrong with me!
Upon reaching adulthood, I joined the Army because I had believed all of the statist propaganda I was taught in government school. I am thankful that I never had to go to war while I was in. My first three decades of life had been quite horrible over all, but I kept searching for truth and wisdom. I had always been an avid reader, and by reading; I eventually healed myself for the most part, and I discovered anarchism as well. The changes that I went through were extremely dramatic: I now love my life very much indeed, and I am now calm and happy by default.
