I Am a Contradiction

At first glance, I am a contradiction: a libertarian who who was raised on social security survivor's benefits; a graduate of public schools; and a graduate of a public university. Surely, if any one life can demonstrate the virtues of a progressive social system, my life does. Surely, only an ingrate would criticize a system that gave him so much.

But we don't get to choose our beginnings, only our destinations.
