Dear Reader,

As preamble & prologue, we venture a few words on our mission. Our goal is simple. We aim to write on issues that intrigue us and which we reckon are of interest to You.

In all we do, we respect objective reality, that which can be evidentially verified. Particularly, the laws of science, historical corroboration, and deductive reasoning, are to us sacrosanct. Our intent is to avoid bias as much as possible. But we are human after all (at least quasi-human), and we acknowledge that at moments we will find it impossible to ignore our visceral instincts.

Where the above do not provide enough guidance, we rely on more subjective constructs, such as freedom, individualism, and collective utility. We use Pareto efficiency as a litmus test, whenever we can apply it.

Thank you for reading thus far. Sincerely yours,
