May 3rd Tom Baugh


Tom Baugh is an entrepreneur, inventor and professional irritant. A former Marine, he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1988 with a degree in Control Systems Engineering. He is a veteran of Operation Desert Storm, and holds a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech earned as an Air Force Laboratory Graduate Fellow after leaving the USMC.   In the context of this book, a monkey is defined as a person that chooses to collectively seize, by unearned means, the property, material or intellectual, temporal or spiritual, of its rightful owner.  The means employed may be fiat, guilt, force, theft, fraud, subterfuge, or anything other than a willing and negotiated exchange of value.  In our modern world, each person is given the opportunity to make a conscious choice whether to be monkeys or men.  But men choose to live their lives upon their own merit.  It is this very spirit of independence of thought and action that makes men the prey of the monkey collective.  As such, monkeys abandon their claim to the rights of men. But monkeys could just as easily choose not to, and become men themselves.  Conspicuously absent from this definition is race, birth, gender, heritage, cultural influences, or any factor other than that singular deliberate decision.
