About Jesse Mathewson

Jesse Mathewson is the author of the popular blog, and provides commentary to many varied places based on a background that includes education in criminal justice, history, religion and even insurgency tactics and tactical training.

Very simple, "That which is voluntary between all individuals involved is always right, if it is not voluntary, it is always wrong."
