Politics

All opinions are my own, and not those of my employer.

I am a "centrist," for lack of a better term. "Liberal" on social policy, "conservative" on economic issues. My views have evolved over time from neo-conservatism to libertarianism to "centrism." I moved away from libertarianism gradually, because regardless of whether the tyranny is inflicted by the State or a corporation, it is still tyranny.

In general, I am in favor of:

I am against all forms of:

  • Nationalism

  • Populism

  • Authoritarianism

Throughout history, whenever and wherever a single "enlightened leader" has stood up and said: "Only I know the way," and the people have applauded and followed blindly, there and then have the poverty, the wars and the mass graves followed. I believe in institutions and the rule of law, not men.
