Eric started out writing about cars for mainstream media outlets such as The Washington Times, Detroit News and Free Press, Investors Business Daily, The American Spectator, National Review, The Chicago Tribune and Wall Street Journal.
At some point, it occurred to him that cars – and of course, motorcycles – represent freedom, but that the freedom to drive (and freedom to drive what you wanted to drive) was being systematically undermined by authoritarian control freaks dressed in red and blue. His former conservatism evolved into Libertarianism, then anarchism – which does not mean no rules but rather no legal monopoly on violence ceded to an entity called government.
So, he became a full-time freelance Anarcho-Libertarian writer, using cars and bikes as the vehicle for making the case for freedom, self-ownership, live – and let live.
His books include “Road Hogs” (2011) and “Automotive Atrocities” (2004).
Eric lives in the boonies of rural Southwest Virginia with his wife and various animals, won’t have a cell phone or get near an airport until the TSA’s Submission Training goes away.
