Do you have a specific philosophy of life?
No, I can’t say I do – only to survive and to meet my responsibilities to the best of my abilities. I am, with respect, very suspicious of ideologies and policies as they usually ignore many people’s needs. I would like to see much simpler opportunities evolve and people, both men and women, be free to develop their own community. I would like to see principles evolve from relationships between people and groups of people rather than being dictated by the theoreticians.
