I have the pleasure of introducing a new perma blogger, Tristan Phillip Call. We look forward to his insights and thoughts. In fact, I’ll let him introduce himself:
I am studying anthropology at Vanderbilt University in order to gather funds and experience to build the Mormon Worker Farm.
I am trying to learn how to study religion, freedom, and farming as a single subject
Planting and harvesting organic fruit and nut trees is my favorite way of smashing imperialism
I believe equally in democracy, anarchy, and communism, and think we can’t achieve one without the other two
I was a turn-the-other-cheek purist for most of my life but now I think that pacifism might require militant resistance against abusive governments and people
I went to Brigham Young University for my undergraduate (2008) and hope to live in Utah (migrating to Central America for every other winter) for the rest of my life
I believe in sharing. I love all insects (toad bugs and tiny wasps and blackfly larvae!) and I love Utah Lake, the most beautiful body of water in the world.
