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.
There's a psychological concept called "causation without compulsion." It's the idea that a man can be free from compulsion, without being free from causation. In other words, "determinism" in the form of implanted scripts doesn't interfere with man's fundamental freedom. So even if person is full of T.A. data recordings, full of taboo's and admonishments, he's still free. But of course that's not true. A man can't be free if he's been brain-washed. This horrible idea was brought to you by David Hume.
