Welcome to the digital home of Parrish Miller.
My website is where I discuss issues of philosophy, politics, and survival. I have been described as a philosophical anarchist and a political pragmatist, but I describe myself as a libertarian. I believe that government is ultimately an unnecessary evil and that the initiation of force is always wrong. As a libertarian, some of my views may seem a bit strange to the average Republican or Democrat: I'm pro-gun but anti-war. I'm pro-free-market but also pro-immigration. I support free trade, the free movement of individuals, and freedom of association. I believe we need significant criminal justice reform and I strongly oppose the death penalty.
It's pretty simple, really.
You become a libertarian when you realize that it's wrong to hurt people and take their stuff. You become an anarchist when you realize that there are no exceptions.

My name is Parrish Miller and I was born in Salem, Oregon. I lived outside of Salem for nearly the first two decades of my life, and spent two years in beautiful Sheridan, Wyoming before moving to Boise, Idaho, in 2006. I started doing web design as a hobby more than 15 years ago, and began doing so professionally in 2010. I have also worked as a policy analyst, blogger, journalist, digital media manager, and social media marketing consultant.
In addition to designing and building websites, I design graphics, logos, business cards, fliers, event programs, political signs, palm cards, Facebook pages, and just about anything else you might need. I also set up, manage, and grow email lists and social media accounts; and I develop and implement strategies to grow these lists and accounts through paid advertising, organic outreach, and other communication strategies. Learn more by visiting my business website.
In addition to my love of web design and information technology, I enjoy politics, economics, philosophy, and lively debate. I believe that government is ultimately an unnecessary evil and that the initiation of force is always wrong. While I consider myself a libertarian and advocate a fully voluntary society, I am also willing to work through the political process to the degree that it advances the cause of individual liberty.

I spent many years involved in Idaho politics. I served as a Delegate from Ada County to the Idaho Republican State Convention in 2010 and as an Alternate in 2012 and 2014. I served as a Director on the Board of the US Patriot Club from 2010 - 2011, and I served as a Director on the Board of the Ada County Tea Party (formerly known as Tea Party Boise) for many years before resigning in protest. I testified before Idaho State legislative committees on numerous occasions on topics ranging from state nullification to healthcare to our right to keep and bear arms. I am a member of the Republican Liberty Caucus, the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, the National Association for Gun Rights, and Gun Owners of America. Once upon a time I was a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) as well, but I refused to renew my membership after the organization repeatedly compromised and betrayed the inalienable right of all individuals to keep and bear arms.
Having been largely cured of my political inclinations, I now find philosophy more interesting than politics and am focused particularly on alternative ideas such as counter-economics, agorism, voluntaryism, and unschooling.
