Reading after a certain time diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. Albert Einstein
As you go down the path of life, ask: ‘What’s true?’, not: ‘Who else believes it?’ I’m not in it for the likes. Bill Maher
When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower. Alexander den Heijer
It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that. G.H. Hardy
I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people that somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you: “There’s no I in team.” What you should tell them is: “Maybe not. But there is an I in independence, individuality and integrity.” George Carlin

Work on the new design for my blog is progressing nicely. I think I have the major work done; now it’s mostly about fine tuning, testing in different browsers and devices, and making sure all the many years of old content looks decent in the new design. As things stand now, I’ll probably be putting the new design live during next week when most people are busy celebrating and pretending to be happy and traffic will be low. I’ll then be doing most of the fine tuning on the live blog; so if you see weird stuff happening you know I’m working on it.
I’m finally working on a new design for my blog like I intended on doing more than a year ago. I was too focused on working on QuantumGate, but I’m currently taking a short break from that to work on my blog. I’m planning to launch the new design before the end of the year so I can get back to working on QuantumGate. Also, when the new blog design goes live I intend to cut back on social media and publish more often on my blog instead. So you if you want to stay in touch, subscribe to my blog’s RSS feed or sign up for email updates by using the form on the homepage.
The State […] is an anti-social institution, administered in the only way an anti-social institution can be administered, and by the kind of person who, in the nature of things, is best adapted to such service [a psychopath]. Taking the State wherever found, striking into its history at any point, one sees no way to differentiate the activities of its founders, administrators and beneficiaries from those of a professional-criminal class. As Dr. Sigmund Freud has observed, it can not even be said that the State has ever shown any disposition to suppress crime, but only to safeguard its own monopoly of crime. Albert J. Nock in “Our Enemy, The State”
