About KalinBooks

Kalin Ringkvist. I like my orange hat, skiing, and not shaving.Hello. I am Kalin Ringkvist; atheist, anarchist, science fiction writer, Web developer, pot smoker and kink enthusiast and former drug dealer. Welcome to my website where I write about stuff. 

 

This website is written and maintained entirely by Kalin Ringkvist. There are no advertisements here. My main goal is to promote anarchism, or more specifically, my theory that police, the military and criminal justice are counter-productive to the goals of society. I feel the same way about religion, but to a lesser degree.

On this website you will find my atheism blog posts, anarchism blog posts, programming related blog posts and some pointless ones. I even have a sex and BDSM blog category, because believing in freedom and celebrating individuality led me there, but I rarely write about it.

I’m currently experimenting with a free-flow strategy for blog post writing, where I let my mind flow and do a minimum of editing. My stories and articles, however, still get lots of planning and editing time.

Anything linked in the left sidebar are free game if you want to copy and use them in other contexts. This includes all my blog entries, atheism and anarchism articles. I prefer that you credit me as author, but it is not necessary. I won’t sue.

For the fiction and true stories linked in the right sidebar, I do wish to maintain basic copyrights. However, if you contact me first, I will probably let you reprint them for free.

Along the way she learns that commandeering a battleship takes more than just artificially focused cunning, automated adrenaline injections, and simple, old-fashioned brutality. For her plan to succeed, Floreina must befriend a Minmatar slave.

But plans don’t always go as planned… And as the two fight for their lives, Floreina must find a way to reconcile their friendship with the racism that drives her career.

Kalin’s True Stories

These are true stories that have actually happened to me. I did my best to be as accurate as possible but… well… you know how it is with memory.

My favorite so far is Stockholm Syndrome, about the time shortly before I became an anarchist when I was arrested and my whole perspective on law enforcement was turned upside down.

For my atheism related true stories, one is Alekson, about an old friend who pulled a knife on someone because he thought she was casting magic spells on him, or The Jesus Leap about a friend who jumped off a bridge for Jesus, or Middle Finger Justice about a guy I knew who went on a killing spree in the name of God. I wish I was making this stuff up.

Many of the other short true stories listed in the sidebar to the right have special meanings and illuminate important issues in our society. Others are just silly, such as The Dog Trap or Attack of the Crows.

 

 


 

Atheism

After experimenting with Christianity around the turn of the century and receiving numerous and increasingly disturbing messages from God, I finally rejected the whole concept. Now I am a devoted atheist because I don’t want anyone else to be put in that kind of danger. Read more on my Atheism page.

22 Ways Religion Promotes Crime – One of the most important articles I’ve ever written. Simple and to the point.

Science Versus Faith – A few examples of how both science and faith are used in the real world.

 


 

Anarchism

Anarchism is a very complex topic and difficult to explain in less than a couple pages. Basically I believe the world would be a better place without government and law-enforcement. I believe police-brutality and corruption are significantly more common than most people will admit. I have personally witnessed such brutality. A police officer once told me there is no such thing as a cop who cares about right and wrong. Another officer once told me that the greatest joy in life is the thrill of beating someone until they beg for their life. I am an anarchist because I do not support that.

I am a communist-anarchist, meaning I believe that financial systems detract from our ability to be good, productive people. In this sense, I am a hypocrite, as I am addicted to money, and my success drives me to support an anarchist vision of socialism.

Old Stories

These are some of the short stories I wrote back in High-School from 1996-1999 for creative writing class. Stories of New Beginnings is my collection of Science Fiction, starting with my first story, Austin Station, a long, multiple perspective about a futuristic society and life aboard a space station.  Memory is one of my favorites, a romance between an old man and a computer-generated memory. Or Two Peoples is a tale about two species trying desperately to communicate as they race a deadly missile.

In The Water Glass Collection, I have some of my more contemporary stories, most people’s favorite being The Water Glass, a story of an old man daring himself to take his final drink of life.

 


 

Marijuana & Drugs

 

Me toking up during my brief mohawk period

I sold marijuana for ten years. I finally quit after moving to Seattle for my programming career. However, I continue to smoke regularly and still see myself as a drug dealer in a spiritual sense.

My previous website was titled Get To Know a Marijuana Dealer, at isellpot.ws. On this site I basically announced my drug-dealer status and mocked the police for their inability to bust me. That site kind of defined who I was for about eight years, but it was eventually stolen by an automated spam-bot when I forgot to renew my domain name. I have posted some of the pages from that old site, such as the book that made me mildly famous in an internet niche, The Beginner’s Guide to Marijuana Distribution, but most of it no longer meets my personal standard of quality.

  1. Subject: WHERE ARE OBAMA’S GIRLFRIENDS?

    Something to think about!!!!!
    I hadn’t thought about this – but where are Obama’s past girlfriends –
    surely he had at least one? No past girl friends popping up anywhere?
    Strange – strange to the point of being downright weird!

    OK, this is just plain old common sense, no political agendas for either
    side. Just common knowledge for citizens of a country, especially American
    citizens, who know every little tidbit about every other president (and
    their wives) that even know that Andrew Jackson’s wife smoked a corn cob
    pipe and was accused of adultery, or that Lincoln never went to school or
    Kennedy wore a back brace, or Truman played the piano.

    We are Americans! Our media vets these things out! We are known for our
    humanitarian interests and caring for our ‘fellow man.’ We care, but none
    of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own
    P resident.
    Honestly, and this is a personal thing… but it’s bugged me for years
    that no one who ever dated him ever showed up. Taken his charisma, which
    caused the women to be drawn to him so obviously during his campaign, looks
    like some lady would not have missed the opportunity.

    We all know about JFK’s magnetism, McCain was no monk, Palin’s courtship
    and even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden’s aneurisms are no secret.
    Look at Cheney and Clinton-we all know about their heart problems. How
    could I have left out Wild Bill before or during the White House?

    Nope… not one lady has stepped up and said, “He was soooo shy,” or “What
    a great dancer!” Now look at the rest of what we know… no classmates, not
    even the recorder for the Columbia class notes ever heard of him.

    Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Check for groomsmen. Then
    get the footage of the graduation ceremony.

    Has anyone talked to the professors? Isn’t it odd that no one is bragging
    that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

    When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos? Every president
    provides the public with all their photos, etc. for their library. What has
    he released? Nada – other than what was in this so-called biography! And
    experts who study writing styles etc. claim it was not O’s own words or
    typical of his speech patterns, etc.

    Does this make any of you wonder?

    Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama’s past, saying they
    knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc? Not one person has
    ever come forward from his past.

    This should really be a cause for great concern. Did you see the movie
    titled, The Manchurian Candidate?

    Let’s face it. As insignificant as we all are… someone whom we went to
    school with remembers our name or face… someone remembers we were the
    clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
    about us.

    George Stephanopoulos, ABC News said the same thing during the 2008
    campaign. Even George questions why no one has acknowledged that the
    president was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made
    impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos was a classmate of Obama at
    Columbia-class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him. Since
    he is such a great orator, why doesn’t anyone in Obama’s college class
    remember him? And, why won’t he allow Columbia to release his records? Do
    you, like millions of others, simply assume all this is explainable – even
    though no one can?

    NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA

    Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400
    ColumbiaUniversity students from the period when Obama claims to have been
    there, but not one remembers him For example,Wayne Allyn Root was (like
    Obama) a political science major at Columbia , who graduated in 1983. In
    2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that
    knew him, and they all know me. I don’t have a single classmate who ever
    knew Barack Obama at Columbia … EVER!

    Nobody recalls him.

    Root adds that he was, “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and says,
    “You don’t get more exact or closer than that.. Never met him in my life,
    don’t know anyone who ever met him.”

    At our 20th class reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker
    of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody
    even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of
    the, as we say in New York , ‘the macha’ who knows everybody, has yet to
    find a person, a human who ever met him.”

    Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s yearbook, and Obama
    consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia ,
    provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or
    friends while at Columbia .

    How can this be?

    NOTE: Wayne Allyn Root can easily be verified. He graduated valedictorian
    from his high school, Thornton-DonovanSchool , then graduated from
    Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same ’83
    class in which Barack Hussein Obama states he was.

    Some other interesting questions.

    Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002?

    Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by court order?

    According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama – but 27
    Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases..

    WHAT!?

    The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he
    is never reported to have lived.

    No wonder all his records are sealed!

    1. Is this really the most appropriate place to post this? I think your conspiracy theories might be taken a little more seriously if you post them on pages that are actually related to your topic.
