  • Building Personal Freedom

    Do you consider yourself to be free? Are you more free today than you were ten years ago? Twenty years ago? Do you think our society is moving toward more individual freedom, or away from it?

  • How Can I Achieve Personal Freedom?

  • Where Did Your Mother Go Into Labor?

    As constant travelers my wife and I spend a disproportionate amount of time complying with immigration rules all over the world. She can visit Hong Kong for 90 days, I can stay for 180 days. I can visit Cuba, she cannot. I can stay in the US for 180 days, she can stay indefinitely. I […]

  • You Don’t Own Your Citizenship

    To some people, their citizenship is a very significant part of their identity.

In either case, most of us […]
