Principles for a Self-Directed Society is the personal political blog of Mr. Jesse S. Smith.  That’s me.

I’m one of the least important people on the planet, and that’s precisely why I felt that it was essential for me to share my perspective. Why should the “important” people have all the fun?  So I wrote a book, and published it, and then started this website to discuss the ideas in the book, and anything else that seemed interesting.

There’s really nothing here worth getting excited about. You may find that you agree or disagree with some of the things I’ve said, and that’s fine; but please, keep the discussion civil.  This is a family show.

New posts go up infrequently, on no particular schedule.  Comments on new posts close after two weeks.  Please feel welcome to share your thoughts, experiences, and polite disagreements while the comments are open.  I will look forward to hearing from you.
