1... 2... 3.... GO!!!

Let the thesis writing begin!

Today is the day that I am finally sitting down and getting started. I went to the library yesterday and picked up about 8 books and I intend to get into them today. I also saved many articles from Jstor that I need to read.

I guess I should begin by explaining a little bit about what my topic is and how I intend to go about it.

I will be discussing the relation between economic and political freedom, how they feed and affect each other. I will used the United States and China in the modern context as examples and case studies relating to my concept of economic and political freedom. I will also justify my reasoning for why I believe that maintaining freedom in economic and political realms is important and needs to be preserved. I believe in the idea that once economic freedom is lost, political and other freedoms will also follow suite. I believe that Socialism trades society’s supreme ideal of freedom for the hazy concept of “fairness”.

I think I'll be breaking my paper up into these chapters:

Political Freedom
Economic Freedom
The combination together & separate
The American example
The Chinese example

The cartoon below actually depicts my life a bit right now. But I know I can get through this fine.
