I am Stoshwolfen, a Christian, an Objectivist, and a Pragmatist.
The nature of the US political environment has become a great concern to me recently. There are a multitude of parties and groups putting out everything from truth to propaganda to half-truth to blatant lies. I welcome you to my personal effort to sort it all out.
Allow me to tell you who I am.
A man, a citizen of the USA, a father of four, a former RN, a computer enthusiast, and a voracious reader.
A Christian – I believe in the salvation of Christ, but I am neither a missionary nor a prophet. This is my personal guide and I have no desire to impose my religion on anyone.
An Objectivist – I believe in the right to life, personal property, and individual self-determination. All human rights are based on these three.
A Pragmatist – The value of a proposition is found by evaluating the effects and results of that proposition. This applies as well to action. I believe it is impossible to know the value or worth of an idea or an action without knowing the effects and results of the idea or action — ALL the results, not just immediate effects.
I will post my honest evaluations of the political evolution before us. No one can deny that we are bound for interesting times. Great changes are before us. I see it as an adventure and here I will document my personal participation in that adventure.
But before we start cheering, remember the ancient Chinese curse: “May you live in interesting times.”
There. I have introduced myself. Buckle up, hunker down, and stay tuned. It might not always be fun, but it will always be as interesting as I can possibly make it.
