Freedom to Choose Your Tyranny

The practice of an established monarchy is largely dead; the ideology of feudalism, although more common than you think, is met with hostility by most citizens; so, what makes you think capitalism and representative government is the pinnacle of freedom

The Practice of Victim Blaming

Capitalism is an incubator of the very worst behaviors in human beings, and it’s the greed, violence, addiction, gluttony and bigotry that the cynical majority cite as examples to the futility of building an alternative system.  The people I meet

Living Arrangements In The Zombie Apocalypse

Stupid title, I know.  But, where are you going to be when the zombies are upon us?  Do you have a stockpile of food, water, medical supplies, weapons, and a suicide plan if it all goes bad?  I mean, you

Empathy For Corporations. Really

I don’t necessarily blame greedy corporations for their actions.  Their corporate charters (by law), require them to produce a profit for their shareholders regardless of the social, economic or environmental consequences.  Corporate monopolies and destruction of small business is the

There Are No Monsters

Many people find it intolerable that I can empathize with everyone; from the lying drug addict to the hedge fund manager that pissed away your college fund.  Even a serial killer wasn’t just born a sociopath, there are reasons for

Reform or Revolution?

American history is not one of revolution, but of reforms to quiet and appease a restless populace.  From the beginning, we have lived in a class society; the majority who perform the work and the minority which make the lion’s

Organized Entropy Expansion #1

I don’t like shopping.  I buy used, if I buy at all.  Sports are dumb.  The TV is a propaganda box.  Guns are a tool and should not be idolized.  “The sanctity of marriage”, is a phrase uttered by bigots.

A Comprehensive Collection

So, I’ve had this little conundrum for a couple years now:  I want to own a home, someplace to call my own that facilitates my lifestyle and I can build it to suit my needs, but I don’t know where

Mobile Minimalism

I’m no minimalist.  I don’t really know what that would look like.  No such person, I suppose, but I like the ideology of minimalism.  I tend to be an excessivist.  Hmmm.  Red Underline.  My word?  Anyway, I do things excessively.

Living Small in a Big World

So, I was rambling yesterday about living situations and 600 square feet being too damn big.  Well, we’ve gone through a number of changes about how and where we want to live.  The ‘where’ is anybodies guess, but that helps

600 sq. ft. Is Too Damn Big

So, I rent.  We rent.  I’ve always rented ever since I moved out of my parents home.  FIrst, $300 a month, then $450, and now $895.  That’s a lot of money I’ll never see again, but that’s the cost to

A Slight Change Of Course

So, I haven’t been writing in a while.  I miss writing on this blog; it helps me think and get my head in order.  For months I was in a new city and unemployed, so I had a lot of
