We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The greater good/it takes a village lands on the authoritarian end of the scale and anarchist are at the other end of the scale. We will always be somewhere toward the middle if we know what's good for us but it should be obvious to most anyone that we are far to close to the authoritarian/Marxist end simply by weighing the paper that our "laws" are written on. We need to trash at least a dump truck load of laws to gain some breathing room and allow some freedom of association and innovation...even if it means burning down the education system and the political overreach of DC.
