On my social media profiles, I call myself "compulsive creative extremist," a phrase inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.  King said, in contrast to the typical denunciations of extremism, that what the world needs is more "creative extremists."

I add "compulsive," because I have a lot of ideas about ways to have fun doing good in the world, and have a hard time resisting taking a stab at many of them, even though I can follow through consistently on only a few things, given finite time.

At the moment, if you check my social media feeds and shows, you'll see that I'm focusing on two main things, substantively: (1) providing support for the protests in Hong Kong, which I think is probably the most inspiring thing happening on the planet right now, and (2) figuring out how to get my theory for the proper legal protection of privacy before some judges--hopefully in time to prevent 1984. 

Watch my shows--currently I'm doing a show weekly with either James Valliant ("None of the Above") or Yaron Brook ("Yaron and Amy Show")--for updates.

In addition to the above, I have my ongoing project since 2011, the "Ayn Rand Bot" on Twitter. I've collected hundreds of quotations from novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand, and the account tweets them out at various intervals throughout the day, usually a few a day. Read more about how I ended up doing that here.

I have been doing these kinds of things--various types of intellectual activism--since at least the year 2000, when I wrote an Amicus Brief to try and keep Elian Gonzalez here in the US. Up until a couple years ago (with the exception of my time at the Air Force Academy, whose policies conflicted with such activism), I was able to do these activities thanks to some sort of institutional support, in conjunction with a paying position. I no longer have that, and so, if I am to continue to do this sort of thing much longer, I have to rely on the support of individual donors like you. If you find value in the various types of content I send out into the world, and can afford to, please consider contributing here. Soon I'll be adding tiers and rewards to make it even more worth your while.

Thanks for reading, and for your support!
