This piece was written on October 19th, 2006, and originally published on my LiveJournal. Before you get into it, there’s a fair bit of warning that needs to be said. I define faith as believing something is true or probably true despite lack of evidence or worse, in contradiction of the evidence.
I’m so impressed by all the new individualists, the new intellectuals, popping up in opposition to the great overreaches of the government. I had no idea there were so many people ready, willing, and able to protest and zealously spread propaganda as far as they can shout in support of individual liberties.
I have launched a project I’ve had sitting around for a while now called Kougeki. It is essentially a Japanese learning blog centered around video gaming. You could say it’s Japanese studies the gamer way.
The end of the line is: the government has a legitimate concern regarding public health. It does have a moral authority to require the minimum of protective measures in situations that merit it.
[Mr. Biddle] (you) propose[s] that religionists and secularists alike can form a unified reason-based movement in support of freedom. But they can’t, as anything that finds its foundation in the religion of the religionists is irrational, thus they can’t be reason-based.
You do NOT have to register your domain with a “search engine registration” company to be listed on most major search engines. There is no such actual service.
At the beginning of their relationship (and eventual marriage), my well-read father told my mother there were certain books that she should read if she wished to understand his inner person. One of them was Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance.

We went to this H & R Block during the pandemic to file our 2019 taxes which included a joint filing because of a marriage, and an LLC to be taxed as a Partnership.
The core of assholery is that in some way, spiritually, mentally, or behaviorally, the asshole is an egotist as opposed to an egoist. An egoist holds their life and fulfillment as the prime value, whereas an egotist sees their life and existence as the only possible value.
The mission for Chraki is as follows: Provide a consistently effective modeling environment for experiential reality, via fundamental abstract organizational processes, that allows for maximum (not optimal) expressive power and freedom in an aesthetically unique and engaging way that celebrates unconventionality and individualism.
Let’s get back to Zoltan. This man is making a presidential bid on a platform of what he calls “transhumanism.” I look forward to the transhuman future where I will once again be more than human. But, it turns out that within only a smattering of Facebook posts on his page, Zoltan has ended up deserving such companions as those found in Ayn Rand International.
Nothing bares the worst of man’s politics than the need to hold steadfast the integrity of group identity; the grossest culprit is society’s presumed goodness.
