What the Heck is a Muscular Minarchist?by Chris
I am a Muscular Minarchist.
I believe in an absolutely minimalist government that provides a strong defense. I want a government that stays out of my wallet, out of my bedroom, and out of my business.
I realize that’s a lot to ask, but I don’t believe it should be.
I write, because from time to time I must express my anger, frustration, ire, pique, and general cussedness in a format that is unlikely to result in my imprisonment.
I can just see it now “Radical right wing gun nut takes out entire joint session of congress”…
Hey a guy can dream can’t he?
Of course I’m not a radical right wing anything; I’m a radical about liberty. I make a careful note that I am a philosophical libertarian (note the small L) and I take those principles seriously. Since I hold all collectivism as an inherent evil, that by the very definition used by modern media, is radical right wing.
The thing is, my opposition to collectivism is from all sides. I reject collectivist government, as much as I reject collectivist social policy, as much as I reject collectivist moral policy, or religion, or any other concentration of the power to coercively limit liberty.
I believe in Liberty, Responsiblity, Service, and Honor… I guess I’m just funny that way.
Okay so who am I?
Well I’m an eight year veteran of the United States Air Force, and an information, physical, and electronic security consultant, and systems architect.
Personally, I’m an ex husband, a boyfriend, a brother, a friend, and a son; a shooter, a singer, a guitar player, a driver, a rider, a sailor, a pilot, a builder, a craftsman, a hunter, an outdoorsman, a cook, a reader, a writer, and a poet.
I’m also a hard core geek; in fact I revel in my geekitude. I work, play, game, read, speek, think, drink and live geek.
