About Me

I am Gregory Koch, a 19-year old student at the University of Connecticut. This blog will reflect my thoughts on politics, the country, and the world. Here are my core opinions
  • I believe the two party system is horribly broken. For two long, the Democrats and Republicans have had the duopoly on politics. And politics as usual isn't working. 
  • Additionally, I consider myself a "libertarian without labels". Basically, what that means is that I've looked at various factions of libertarianism and none of them have been precisely what I want. I take my beliefs from a range of philosophies, including classic liberalism, voluntaryism, practical anarchism, libertarian socialism,  and civil libertarianism. The title is a nod to Anarchism Without Adjectives.
  • That being said, I do not consider my beliefs permanently immutable. Two years ago, I was a liberal. Now, I've come to support smaller and smaller government. Case and point. My quote from Mark Grisanti on the quotes page reflects the way I feel about this. It's not weak to change your views, only to not act upon them.

  1. Out of curiosity, what is your view on how you think we should handle the current economy?

    1. First, this isn't a poorly written comment, so don't worry about it.

      To answer your question, the Keynesian idea of spending our way out of a recession is doomed to fail. We need to scale back spending and cut taxes.

      Good government doesn't create jobs. It creates the opportunity for jobs by cutting taxes on businesses and individuals and decreasing unnecessary regulations.

      These new jobs will boost the economy, both in terms of new production by the jobs (thus creating new goods and services) and more jobs meaning they can spend more.

  3. Would you say this is the libertarian idea for economic healing or is this your own view based off of a mix of view points?

  4. There are multiple libertarian perspectives on the economy, not just one. I am a libertarian so my views naturally are based off multiple other perspectives, mainly some sort of libertarianism. But that's why I call myself a libertarian without labels, so I'm not bound to classical liberalism, or objectivism, or voluntarism, or any of those things.

  5. I understand. While I do differ with you in my views on how to fix the economy, I'm happy to see an informed actual Libertarian. Over the past few years, I've seen an emergence of essentially anarchists and over-reactive,uninformed, people that have branded themselves as "Libertarians", which they very clearly are not. Its nice to see someone who knows what they're talking about.

  6. Learn some manners, and stop SINGING/SCREAMING in PUBLIC like the complete FUCKING RETARD that you are. KEEP YOUR FUCKING MOUTH SHUT WHEN YOU'RE IN PUBLIC.

    What, too STUPID to get into a good school in-state, so you throw out money in CT? GO BACK TO NEW YORK, ASSHOLE, and STAY THERE.

    Your math league performances are completely UNIMPRESSIVE.

    Nation-states is FOR PATHETIC DOUCHEBAG LOSERS, like you. And your SAS project was BAD. You're the STUPIDEST person in your group, and the mostANNOYING person in the class, so SHUT THE FUCK UP every once in a while. Nobody likes you at all, and you're too stupid to even work a computer and SAS, or you'd not whine about not being able to use SAS all the freaking time, ASSBURGER RETARD.

    Go ask your rich parents to BUY YOU SOME FRIENDS AND A LIFE, you WORTHLESS SCUMBAG VIRGIN.

    Christ, you're such a fucking retarded asshole, ASSBURGER-AUTIST.

    (your DC articles suck, btw. all of them.)
