Hi,

I'm Isaac. 22 years old from the UK.

I'm a Baptist and a Bible-believer. My main authority is the Word of God. For that reason I am led to a position that is anti-statist, as there was no conception of a "state" in Biblical Israel, and a defender of what I will call a theocratic confederal republic.

I am very careful with embracing certain political words. I love a lot of work that the Mises Institute provides and I'm certainly a laissez-faire radical. No state interference, zero regulation of markets, private property rights etc... But I would just shy away from a lot of this political philosophy. I'm certainly no secularist and I would call for those who are more socially liberal in their outlook to have a mind to the family unit and to truly consider whether some of their left-leaning libertarian values are actually truly libertarian.

I would also call to mind the nature of a free republic and a fixed law of the land, an objective law, a divine law. So whilst I appreciate and agree to what a lot of anarcho-capitalists have to offer, I'm also reluctant to fully embrace the term because there's a lot of philosophising, a lot of confusion, a lot of relativism, a lot of cultic reverencing of markets, and I'm most concerned with what actually is the objective reality. And to me that's a recognition of the existence of God and that he got it right the first time in protecting all our liberties. Sound economics alone cannot save us from decadence, nor can it protect us from aggressors who do not share our principles, nor can it spare us from a complete cultural wipeout.

My main goal really is to win souls to Christ, but also to point my fellow Christians to true republican values, which I believe are biblical. I also take a keen interest in 17th century puritanism, and would like to restore some interest into the events of the English Civil Wars and the wider religious/libertarian issues that were brought up during that period of history, because I think there's a lot to be learned then for us today.
Welcome aboard Isaac. Good to have you here

Yesterday I had to reset my password, the email took some hours to arrive. This kind of thing usually happens in an instant in my experience.

Good to be here, Physiocrat. I think I made about 3 accounts on different e-mails to try and get verified. After trying spontaneously again a few days ago, it simply worked.

It seems phpbb is notoriously bad for emails after googling a bit.
