"The art of politics, under democracy, is simply the art of ringing it. Two branches reveal themselves. There is the art of the demagogue, and there is the art of what may be called, by a shot-gun marriage of Latin and Greek, the demaslave. They are complementary, and both of them are degrading to their practitioners. The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. The demaslave is one who listens to what these idiots have to say and then pretends that he believes it himself." ~ H.L. Mencken
My name’s Michael Fielding, I’ve lived on the Earth through 22 orbits and recently graduated from the University of Texas with a BS in Computer Science. I’ve begun my big adventure, currently living in the Caribbean aboard my boat, Sovereignty. Right now I’m in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and I plan to stay for a few months to really explore the island and the culture.
I’m a full-time thinker and adventurer. I love experiencing new things and new places. I try to see the world as objectively as possible and enjoy writing out my ideas. I also love learning, my interests include economics, philosophy, physics, space, technology and more.
