My final post


It saddens me to say that this is going to be the last post on this blog.

Since August 2007 there has been 1,729 posts, most of which have come from me but some from a few guest posters. It has been a great experience. I feel like my writing abilities have grown through practice, and that my ideas have developed and over the years become more sophisticated. I want to thank all those commenters that have challenged my ideas and have corrected my typos. Not all of you have been nice but all of you have been engaged and ultimately that is what I would want from commenters.

I won’t go into why I am retiring from blogging except to say that it is for professional reasons. I hope to continue to contribute to the debate of ideas through different venues and opportunities.

My stated goal for this blog has always been:  to contribute to the philosophical and political movement towards greater personal responsibility and freedom. I feel like I have, in a small way, accomplished this and I hope that you have found my writing and posts to be interesting and informative.

Farewell!

Sorry to see you go Hugh. I may not have frequently contributed comments, but yours was one of the most interesting blogs I have read, even if I didn't always agree with you.

That being said, I understand when you say you are retiring for professional reasons.

Best wishes in your future endeavours.

Still waiting for you to review my piece on the economic feasibility of my proposed 10 Child policy ($100 bonus for each child so long as a family has ten) which would beef up population in our far north and provide labour and defense from the Russians, Danes, and (eventually) Pleiadians.

I quote – “Since citizenship carries with it a responsibility to be exclusively loyal to one country, the whole concept of dual citizenship and nationality raises questions about which of the dual citizenship’s have priority.”

While we at the Temple of Ansar Al-Haqq don’t deny issues such as these to be a controversy that should be addressed, as stated above in our excerpt from the Law of nations; “Every thing ought to be conducted according to its nature. Nations cannot be well governed without such regulations as are suitable to their respective characters; and in order to this, their characters ought to be known.”

Therefore, from the spiritual protection offered by being a part of a nation of peace, we best think the security of allegiance is safeguarded when that nations people conduct themselves in the manner complementary to their nature.
