My goal is that my writing will help you to get started on your own journey of discovery, or help you along the way on a journey you may have already begun. Our Founders considered education, religion, morality, and virtue to be the cornerstones for any successful society. Being successful requires understanding both the languages of reason and faith; reason alone is insufficient. This requires discovering how one is to ‘live rightly’, which is where this website’s name comes from. Unfortunately, our education system today no longer teaches what we need to remain free and independent, and as a result we are in danger of losing our way. But it is not too late. In the end we each have the freedom to choose, and the ability to learn. There are many who have already blazed a trail for us; we only need the will to embrace the challenge and make the effort. We won’t always agree on everything, and that is okay. This will be a space to exchange those ideas. What matters is that together we will recreate the societal foundation that our Founder’s, and many after them, have fought and died for.
Dan Wolf’s life can be divided into his career and vocation. By way of career, he is a successful professional with over twenty years’ experience helping organizations solve problems. He possesses a rich mix of research experience, analytical abilities, and the capability of turning complex abstract ideas into something tangible. He deeply believes that things do not happen in isolation; that understanding different facets leads to a better understanding of issues.
He is a CPA with a Master’s degree in Finance and two years of doctoral coursework in human judgment and decision-making. He taught himself programming, and has extensive experience in utilizing technology to design and develop business processes that support cost and performance metric development, financial and operational analysis, and the distribution of information from those processes. He has used analytical methodologies to identify cost improvement, cycle time reduction, data quality improvement, and human performance management opportunities.
His vocation began at a young age with a penchant for history, but started in earnest with the events of 9/11. In trying to understand those events he has been led on a journey which has included learning the tenets of Islam, the contents and history of the Bible, and exploring Christian philosophical/theological thought related to our purpose. This purpose directly translates into how we should govern ourselves and is born out in the history of freedom’s development. Future works will focus on these and related topics.
This series about liberalism’s differences from Christian principles ends examining man’s dominion in the areas of creation, family, society, and governance. It closes with one final implication from man creating his own values.
