There is no way I can summarize my view by email because I find it necessary to show applications as well. Just explaining one-on-one takes hours.

But basicly it all comes down to, Every animal strives for pleasure and to avoid pain. I see this in every type of animal behavior I observe. I take this furthure and say it is because they are selfish. Every animal community works together for the benefit of everyones selfish desire, more or less. Those who are better at controlling the group sometimes persecute those that threaten (in their mind) that individual's pleasure feeling. My philosophy is to not allow that to happen because what if some else became stronger than me, and thus persecuted me? My hope is, by showing others that if noone persecuted anyone then we could all acheive are pleasure. And if we work together for each others safety we can each have the most pleasure with the least amount of pain. This is were I usualy bring up why we should have city state governments, some governments for whos ideals are different. Overall no government should control people but people should control the government.

I hope that answers your question.
