Tagline
Christian pacifist, Christian anarchist and gardener, enjoying a simple life.
Introduction
Born in 1970, I was raised in London, England, by amazingly loving parents and given a privileged private school education. In 1991, I graduated from university and embarked on a career in sales and business, which included working for a petroleum company.

In the late 1990s I entered a period of self-reflection, contemplating the meaning of life. Later I became exasperated with the US and UK's military response to 9/11.

In 2003, during a period of self-purification, I underwent a life changing experience when God spoke to me. Atheism, capitalism and "just war" were replaced by pacifism, Christian anarchism and simply living below the income tax threshold; a form of war tax resistance.

In 2005, I created a website, Yahoo group and blog outlining a future and reality revealed to me by God. Since then I've contributed to Wikipedia, A Pinch of Salt and Reddit.

In 2007, I met my partner at a college in Dorset whilst studying horticulture. Elizabeth was studying animal welfare and is, in addition to Jesus and God, the love of my life.

Further to my post about Thomas, I thought this image sums up the 30-year White House Peace Vigil (the longest in US history). A small lone tent sits opposite, and in contrast to, the grandiose White House with the warning "L...
