Got Choices?

Content Illustration


First, thank you for taking some time to thoughtfully consider the principle of choice. In an age of fast food, fast entertainment and fast media, it is becoming unfortunately rare to find the time to just read and think. But there is really no other way to understand some of life’s biggest and most important questions.

Second, if you’re like me, and hate forewords and introductions in books, feel free to skip ahead to the beginning and jump right in!

I wrote this work because I felt I had some important things to say–perhaps some things we all need to be reminded of from time to time. Humanity has progressed to an interesting point in our evolution. We have unprecedented access to technology, resources, energy and information. And still, we have yet to show whether we will use it to help and uplift mankind, or just continue trying to subordinate and exploit one another.

This book is intended to help and uplift. And I believe there is nothing more uplifting than becoming the master of one’s own life, choices and destiny. But to do so requires effort and understanding. It requires that we talk to each other and discuss why individual free will is important. And then we must structure our society in a way that actually promotes the principles of self-determination.

As will be discussed later in the book, the Internet and the Open Source movement have been critical developments in bringing increased choices and opportunities to regular people. And as I considered publishing this book, it seemed inconsistent to just follow the centuries-old method of printed words on a paper-bound book. So I have chosen to format and publish it primarily for electronic formats.

The book is available on the web site free of cost–simply with the hope that it will do some good. If you like it, please share it with others.

My experience in showing drafts to friends and colleagues is, it can be a lot to take in. So you might get worn out if you try to read it straight through like a conventional book. That is another reason it is published primarily in a web format.

Using the outline and the hyperlinks into separate chapters, it may be easier to digest one chunk at a time. The website also contains articles covering some of the same topics, but in a more abbreviated format.

The web version is not intended to be a static work like a printed copy. I intend to add and modify content as it seems appropriate and relevant.

Finally, what is published here represents my opinions only and is not intended to be a statement of fact. We all act according to the best knowledge we have available at the time. In the end, what we believe is a choice–just like most everything else in life.

Surely there are many things I haven’t yet considered, so I welcome your feedback, which you can send through the website.

Please read, think and enjoy!
