project WORLDVIEW      META THEME          copyright 2023         Home

I value individual freedom and don’t like regulations that restrict it.  Regarding freedom of speech, the only limitation on it I accept is on speech urging immediate hurtful action.  If my actions don't directly bother or harm other human beings—or negatively impact their property—I believe I'm free to do whatever I want with my body, my machines or my property —including land I own. I don't think we live on a small planet since it's big enough to seem mostly devoid of human presence over vast areas. If we ever do run out of living space / resources on Earth, we'll simply go elsewhere in space for them.
