read the libertarian socialism page, our species currently testing the limits of culture, how societies cohere in new technology.  some answers ugly

libertarian socialism tends to deny the legitimacy of most forms of economically significant private property, viewing capitalist property relation as a form of domination that is antagonistic to individual freedom

maximize free creativity in a society in preference to free enterprise

libertarian philosophy generally regard concentrations of power as sources of oppression that must be continually challenged and justified.  most libertarian socialists believe that when power is exercised as exemplified by the economic, social, or physical dominance of one individual over another, the burden of proof is always on the authoritarian to justify their action as legitimate when taken against its effect of narrowing the scope of human freedom.  libertarian socialists typically oppose rigid and stratified structures of authority, be they political, economic, or social

georgist ideas heavily influenced the politics of the early 20th century.  political parties that were formed based on georgist ideas include the commonwealth land party, the justice party of denmark, the henry george justice party and the single tax league.  several communities were also initiated with georgist principles during the height of the philosophy's popularity.  two such communities that still exist are arden, delaware, which was founded in 1900 by frank stephens and will price; and fairhope, alabama, which was founded in 1894 by the auspices of the fairhope single tax corporation.  christian anarchist leo tolstoy was enthused by the economic thinking of henry george, incorporating it approvingly into later works such as resurrection, the book that played a major factor in his excommunication

read skinks lizards as pets

myth: skink bites reopen on the anniversary of their occurrence

you should absolutely avoid feeding your skink things like iceberg lettuce, which many people refer to as crunchy water.  instead, choose leafy greens that are full of nutrients, like romaine lettuce, spinach and collard greens.  if you have them available, your lizard will also enjoy things like kale and bok choy.  these vegetables are fairly high in iron, something that your lizard does need.  if you have issues remembering which vegetables are best, simply remember that the more colorful or dark the vegetable is, the more likely it is to be healthy for your skink.  you'll also find that your skink adores squash of all kinds, whether you are looking at acorn squash, stringy spaghetti squash or butternut squash

when it comes to fruit, there is a wide variety that your lizard will love.  basically, any fruit that you can pull out of the pile at the grocery store will work for you.  if you want to keep things basic, remember to offer your lizard a few grapes with each meal, or diced bites of apple or chunks of melons.  for something a little more exotic, look around for kiwi, papaya, and mango.  juicy fruits will also help you keep your lizard hydrated
