More About the Author

My motto these days is, "Give peace a chance." I hope my writing and speaking can help people find ways to craft patterns of life marked by peaceful, voluntary cooperation.

Everything I've published to date has been non-fiction. I write about law, politics, ethics, and religion, largely from a philosophical perspective.

My philosophical work is very much in the analytic tradition, though I'm inclined to embrace the process metaphysics of Alfred North Whitehead, Charles Hartshorne, John Cobb, and David Ray Griffin. In moral and political philosophy, I've been influenced by people including Thomas Nagel, John Finnis, David Wiggins, and Owen Flanagan, along with my Center for a Stateless Society compatriots Roderick T. Long, Charles W. Johnson, Kevin Carson, Sheldon Richman, Joe Stromberg, and Brad Spangler. In philosophy of religion and philosophical theology, I've gained a lot from current and not-so-current thinkers including, apart from people I've already mentioned, Karl Rahner, Nicholas Lash, Austin Farrer, David Brown, John Macquarrie, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Robert Adams, Fritz Guy, Charles Teel, Jr., David Larson, and John Hick.

Politically, I'm a left-wing market anarchist. I take anarchism to be the project of doing without the state. I support the elimination of states and their replacement by a diverse array of consensual communities in which people experiment with ways of being human and of being free.

I'm a market anarchist because (while I don't think everyone should be forced into a cookie-cutter mold), I'd opt for a state-free community in which people enjoyed robust individual possessory rights and were free to structure relationships through exchange. My market anarchism is left-wing because I support inclusion and oppose subordination, deprivation, and aggressive and preventive war. I own the American individualist anarchists, especially Benjamin Tucker and Lysander Spooner, as forebears; thus, I'm happy to identify as a socialist in something like the sense suggested by Tucker's work.

My day job is as associate dean of La Sierra University's School of Business. At La Sierra, I teach courses in business ethics, global poverty, employee and labor relations, religion and science, political philosophy, and social theory. On a more personal level: I'm sentimental and nostalgic. I'm an insomniac, an early riser, a geek, a technophile, and a vegetarian. I abhor positional authority. Friendship is central to who I am. Born in Glendale, I've lived in SoCal most of my life and it still moves and excites me. I devour TV shows via Netflix. And I read, and read, and read.
