Pete Quinones' core philosophy is that all human interaction should be voluntary, period! Any and all coerced or forced interactions are logically and morally without mandate. "If I do not have the right to demand 30% of my neighbor's labor, I can in no way, logically or morally, pass that right on to some other man or organization." -Pete Quinones (July 2017)
