My Life from Here

I’ve spent almost twenty years formulating recommendations about the hardest civic problem, which is:

Unsustainability, Entitlements and Governance

Regulation is necessary for survival. The survival of any society, even animal societies, depends on the presence of regulatory arrangements necessary for social control and prosperity.

Engagement, Negotiation, Accommodation

Don’t ask, “Should indigenous citizens have entitlements unavailable to others?” as though it were a matter of principle. Marxists challenge inheritance, free marketeers challenge safety nets. Theorists apply principles to matters of entitlement, and that’s a problem.
