About the Stellar Anomaly
Throughout history, there have been people who have challenged long held assumptions, broken through restrictive barriers, and have changed the world for the better. These people were and are stellar individuals. It was their uniqueness that made them great. They stood apart from the crowd because they were able to do what others were either incapable or unwilling to do. They were anomalies or “deviations from the common rule[i],” who, to quote the great William F. Buckley Jr., had the courage to stand “athwart history yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so….” This site is dedicated to them, those strong willed and fearless stellar anomalies who let nothing stop them from accomplishing great feats.
This blog is my small attempt to gain stellar anomaly status. It gives me a platform to express my views and to analyze the crazy events unfolding as we speak. True anomalies always make their voices heard.
Yet, I must warn you—if you haven’t already noticed—this is a political blog. You may discern from my initial paragraph where I define the blog’s title, I’m a firm believer in the notion of individualism, which forms the basis of my political philosophy.
Beware those who use words like “common good” or “public welfare” when speaking about public policy. People who only value the will of the majority usually love to trample the rights of the individual.
I believe that people should be free to do whatever they want to do, so long as they don’t infringe upon the rights of others. States with limited governments that promote freedom and respect individual property rights are the best states to live in. (Go America!) States with small governments that don’t interfere with the economy or with private business are usually the most prosperous; history has proven that. In fact, there are only three services that states should provide: 1) national security, or protecting private citizens from foreign invaders, 2) a police force, or protecting citizens domestically from injustice, and 3) a court system, to act as a third party arbiter between citizens with private disputes and to enforce contracts. Governments that are strictly restrained to these categories are the best places for promoting prosperity and harmony.
Some may call me a libertarian or conservative, which is fair. Yet, I don’t like labels because the constrain people from thinking freely. They pressure individuals to act a certain way, lest they be ostracized or face criticism for not following the group. True Stellar Anomalies break past these labels.
With that said, thank you for reading the blog. You may not agree with me on everything, but I do hope you learn something every time you stop by. Enjoy!
