Politically, I subscribe to classical liberalism. I'm for: individual freedom, laissez-faire capitalism, small government, free speech, merit-based hierarchies, private property, minimal taxes, voluntary charity. Against political and cultural Marxism (plus related ideologies); economic interventionism; political correctness; welfare.

My blog will reflect my interests, as well as my political views.
