—“Only the autodidacts are free.”— Nassim Nicholas Taleb,

I would never have been ‘permitted’ to develop Propertarianism (Natural Law) in the academy. The simple reasons that (a) interdisciplinary phd’s are nearly impossible, (b) taking 10+ years to solve a hard problem is unacceptable. (c) publishing along the way to a solution only serves to anchor you in a falsehood. (d) the academy forces presumptions (paradigms) that are false due to its market incentives to produce educational products rather than truth (in other than the physical sciences).
