Welcome to my plot in The Commons. On this virtual land I aim to harvest liberty, something I believe is as essential to human security and survival as clean water, food and love. It is most certainly the shelter I want to leave my children.
Liberty, to me, is the freedom to be myself wisely. When I can do that, and when others are also free to be themselves wisely, miraculous things happen. Politically, I am interested only that my right to self-governance of the process of being myself wisely is safe guarded.
I have long observed forces at work in our country and in my own life that propel toward greater liberty, and forces that seek its diminishment. I am here to align myself with former, and to help cultivate and preserve that rarest and most precious of heirloom seeds.
Ultimately, I have no more idea of how this will go down than I do our yearly kitchen garden. I expect to get dirty, to suffer catastrophic crop failure and to stay in when it’s raining. I also expect to learn a thing or two and to eat well. That seems enough.
