I'm just a field-geologist-turned-research-scientist who can also sell fiction. Politically Libertarian, I despise both major parties.
Like Thomas Jefferson, I too have sworn eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. These days that mainly means government suppression of free speech, public and private (hello, SFWA) censorship, Political Correctness, and those fools who cry out loudly claiming to be "offended" by something when they are just being special snowflakes objecting to free speech that opposes their own personal worldviews.
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” - George Orwell
“Censorship is to art as lynching is to justice.” - Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
