My Values

These are my values, in order:

1. Truth
2. Freedom
3. Happiness

Really I should just stop there; the details and definitions keep expanding into this vast and tangled mess of what the appropriate scope for societal vs. individual action is, how to deal with conflicting freedoms, and all the other complicated bits we call "ethics" and "politics" and "economics". I can't possibly deal with the entire subject, so I've hacked it back as much as I can (several times... it keeps growing back...). I took out all the footnotes!

Also I have a history of expressing this badly because some of it seems so obvious I forget to mention it. I have tried to take out the over-reacting unnecessary justifications but might have missed a few; I may also still be leaving things out. Bear both in mind.
