Sapere aude - dare to be wise
Wednesday, September 01, 2004
Posted 11:56 AM by Luke
An introduction

I thank Josh for his kind welcome, and I am honored to be a contributor to Sapere aude. In the coming months, you'll get to know me better (for better or for worse) from my current positions on the law and my experiences developing these positions as I progress through law school. But for now, let me introduce myself in the usual fashion:

I have grown up, and still live in, Greenwood, a suburb to Indianapolis's south. I attended high school at Roncalli, a Catholic diocesan school located in the southside of Indy, where I played for that year's 3A football state champions. And I use the term "play" loosely, as I was a special teams junkie and not a starter on either defense or offense. Nevertheless, the Roncalli football experience is unique and has left an indelibly positive impression on my character.

From there I moved 3 hours to the north where I attended undergrad at the University of Notre Dame, where I majored in political science, shed some tears at the football team's struggles, and became involved in student activist groups such as the pro-life group, the college Republicans, and the gay-straight alliance.

I introduced myself to blogging the spring semester of my junior year, when I built the blog I still maintain today, Daily Contentions.

I'm not a big fan of labeling myself in certain groups-- especially political ones-- but if I were forced to identify my creed, it would be similar to these words by Friedrich Hayek:

"Liberty not only means that the individual has both the opportunity and the burden of choice; it also means that he must bear the consequences of his actions and will receive blame or praise for them. Liberty and responsibility are inseparable."
