Philosophically and morally, I am an Objectivist, and politically a Sovereign Individual / Autarchist. I live by Galt's Oath and I conduct personal relationships under the terms of the Covenant of Unanimous Consent*--which is essentially laissez faire*, Live and Let Live--and the libertarian Non Aggression Principle which is: "No one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation".
An intro to the *Covenant of Unanimous Consent is here:
What *IS* the absolute bare minimum that two people need to agree upon, in order to live together peacefully and productively?
Other articles about the Covenant are here:
P.S. If you agree with the Covenant, I REALLY WOULD like to meet and talk. This is a "core" issue and we may discover that we have others in common.
*Laissez faire: the practice or doctrine of noninterference in the affairs of others, esp. with reference to individual conduct or freedom of action.
I was a business representative for the Objectivist Nathaniel Branden Institute for many years during the '60s and I am the creator of Atlas Shrugged Celebration Day in Ouray, Colorado and Judge Narragansett’s New Constitution Project, both accessible from http://AtlasShruggedCelebrationDay.com
I also have a forum/blog at http://DennisLeeWilson.com
In the "Questions" area, there is an interesting one about "daydreaming". I DO daydream and my daydreaming is intentional, deliberate and "nurtured". It is a part of my creative process. EVERY advance in human knowledge, innovation, production, engineering, arts, crafts and living standards STARTED as somebody's daydream--including the computer you are using to view this!
I recently finished migrating my personal website to http://DennisLeeWilson.com and I continue updating it. I am also compiling--off and on-- the pieces for a book about my architectural and classic music mentor: "Paul Yaeger: An Arizona Architect":
I am remodeling my own adobe residence for the second time in 30 years (I've remodeled a dozen houses over the years). It looks fantastic in my mind but is quite a chaotic mess in the real world....never remodel while you live in a place. I broke my own "rule".
I've considered getting a summer place in Free State Wyoming and "snowbirding" between AZ and WY. From time to time, I replay the possibilities but have not yet committed to such a move.
Polyamory (or simply poly), is about love AND sex. It is also about an attitude--do you control your lover's every action or is your lover a free person? A truly polyamorous person chooses freedom over control. I am polyamorous. I prefer a non-marital relationship with a woman who reflects my values. I respond to values that I admire, being exhibited by other people. I LIKE having sex with and being in the company of an intelligent, imaginative woman who can think! That is certainly NOT promiscuous. A reluctance to being in a single "committed" relationship does not mean that one indiscriminately jumps into bed with just anyone.
"Polyamorous" describes people who are open to more than one relationship. Does a parent love one of her/his children and not the others? Sure, that is "different"--but there are elements that are very similar. I've written some on this subject. I'm currently "poly-single" looking for an intelligent woman as friend who might become a primary relationship.
Here is a link to a light-hearted and very good video presentation and explanation of polyamory by Leon Finegold:
I do not own other people. I have no interest in "controlling" the actions or behavior of someone else. That includes who she sees or with whom she has dinner and/or sex. People cannot "own" other people and attempting to do so is the root of jealousy and conflict.
At my age, living together may not be an ideal arrangement. I expect we both have many activities that would be difficult to abandon or integrate into living together. But that does not rule out the possibility of a good relationship, nor does it necessarily rule out the possibility of living together.. Also, as I commented on some of the questions, I enjoyed raising my two sons and, even at my age, with the right woman and circumstances, I would seriously consider raising another family.
I've also written (a blog?) on current events and individual sovereignty. A Subject Index to those articles is at
This quote sums up my political views very nicely: "The quest for freedom [is] a highly introspective, personal journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. The eradication of government is not necessary for one to be free. To the contrary, one must first attain freedom in order to be rid of government."
I like science fiction for its imagination qualities, real science for its tie to reality, chess & Rottweilers, although I am currently without a Rotty and have a beautiful, long-haired red cat instead.
I am a classical music enthusiast & collector of a Raymond Loewy designed 1953 Studebaker coupe & three "newer" Mercedes Benz SLC coupes (plus a few others).
I am a creative thinker and enjoy making my creations real. And I like to brainstorm, although I have found few others who do. Use the following link to visit brainstorming subjects:
I am a (lapsed) member of Mensa & am a past editor of Vidya, the Journal of the Triple Nine Society. I have also created OnlyOne Agora, an UN-moderated forum especially for individuals in the 99.9 %-tile who dislike being "moderated" by their alleged peers.
Movies: Some movies that I've seen and enjoyed: FireFly & Serenity, Stargate, Star Wars and I really liked Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. I like Braveheart and the Highlander series (well, I wear a kilt, what did you expect?) Before I quit TV, I enjoyed "Breaking Bad" and the Sci-Fi series "Eureka" and "Warehouse 13". It was nice to see those 2 new Sci-Fi shows that don't depend heavily on militarism and violence. I canceled my cable TV and started buying dvds of shows I want to watch. I recently finished an "oldie": "Tales of the Gold Monkey". I get to see the episodes I missed--when *I* want to view them.
Music: Mostly Classical: esp Aaron Copeland, Antonin Dvorak--his New World Symphony got me started on classical; Folk: John Denver, ABBA, early Kingston Trio, Loreena McKennitt. I find Native American flute music to be particularly haunting as well as the guitar music of Joaquin Rodrigo.
Shows: I've seen a few. I'm not too keen on stage shows or concerts. DVDs are much better. I get to control when and how I want to watch them. DVDs also allow me to avoid the crowds.
1. Creativity. I LOVE it! I have designs & notes scribbled in many places on all kinds of subjects.
2. Imagination. Einstein says it is more important than knowledge and I agree. Beside, Creativity thrives on imagination!
3. Knowledge. At my age, I have definitely acquired some of this and could certainly never do without. Imagination builds on knowledge!
4. BACKUPS! Recent computer failures have been a bit traumatic.
5. Still workin' on this one--well, four is more than I had before!!
Autarchy is explained on my website at:
Autarchy is distinguished from "anarchy" at:
SPECIAL NOTE: If you agree with The Covenant of Unanimous Consent (see link above), then I'm guessing you realize how rare that is and I REALLY WOULD like to meet and talk with you.
*Basic Compatibility: PLEASE NOTE that I am NOT attracted to religious people nor people who worship authority of any kind. It is a mind-that-thinks-and-values issue. If you are over 30 and cannot make up your mind (Agnostic) or still believe in fairy tales, supernatural things and/or ghosts, goblins, gods or things that go "bump" in the night, AND/OR you voted to make WAR on innocent people (Insane McCain or Bomber Obama) then we are NOT compatible at a very basic level!
I could have put this as a "warning" at the top and saved you some reading, but worship of authority and/or the supernatural (religion) are just not important enough to be first on ANYTHING of mine. It belongs where you now find it--last.
