"What shall be done with the four million slaves if they are emancipated? ... Primarily, it is a question less for man than for God -- less for human intellect than for the laws of nature to solve. It assumes that nature has erred; that the law of liberty is a mistake; that freedom, though a natural want of the human soul, can only be enjoyed at the expense of human welfare, and that men are better off in slavery than they would or could be in freedom; that slavery is the natural order of human relations, and that liberty is an experiment. What shall be done with them? Our answer is, do nothing with them; mind your business, and let them mind theirs. Your doing with them is their greatest misfortune. They have been undone by your doings, and all they now ask, and really have need of at your hands, is just to let them alone. They suffer by every interference, and succeed best by being let alone." ~ Frederick Douglass
I am still learning how chaotic things actually are. I am still believing how wonderful things actually will be.
Biology: As far as I know, I have 23 pairs of chromosomes in each of my living cells.
Biography: I was born in Nebraska. I am living and working in Georgia. I am a Christian and it is my personal choice (which is one of the things I love about libertarianism and anarchism.) I have a degree in psychology but my best education always seems to come from daily experience. I have a wife who is my best friend, three awesome dogs and two strange but neat stepdaughters.
Some of my interests are kayaking, camping, hiking, cooking, photography, singing, and traveling.
