The world can be so great, and often is.

I write about philosophy, government, gay and LGBT culture, music, fitness, and any other thing that I think is interesting to both myself and others.

I have a model of the world that says people can achieve more than most think, both individually and collectively. You can call it rationally optimistic or solution-oriented, but you should not call it naive.

As for the title of this Substack—“newsletter” didn’t exactly cut it, and neither did “blog.” It’s being done in the spirit of the pamphleteer, which is more fun and more accurate.

Thanks for following along (you can learn more about me on my website or Twitter).

Yours ever and most sincerely,
Daniel Golliher
