ABOUT the AUTHOR

I DO NOT RECOGNISE

THE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE

I use the term 'government' as a collective noun for a gang of politicians. A politician is just a stranger who has made a career choice. I have no reason to believe a politician can serve our interests above their own. I have not voted for 20 years because I cannot—in good conscience—put my name to the actions of the state.

Although I am a firm anti-statist, I know that many people rely upon familiar institutions; that I have no right to take that away any more than they have the right to force their peculiarities upon me. I believe there is a way for society to thrive without force or coercion from any single ideology. I encourage free trade, private business and voluntary exchange.

I do not care about my reputation, particularly when judged by standards beneath me: Left/right political division. Race, sex or preferences.  Boomer/doomer meme slang. High brow or low brow aesthetics and taste.

I am not a doctor, professor or philosopher. I am no academic, politician nor economist. I have never had a spiritual revelation which was not tied to narcotic provocation. I cannot say if the devil is real or not.

 

I know who I am, and what I will—and will not—accept.

My name is Stuart Farr, but my cat says Meow when she wants me. You could make whatever sound you like if you speak of me—it is non of my business.
