Hi.  I'm Kiley Sanders.  I have a 10 month old daughter.  She will be 1 year on March 5, 2014.  I have wanted to be a doctor since I was about 9 years old until recently.  I have decided to study Forensic Science instead.  I'm interested in the lab work Forensic Scientists are able to do.  Aside from that I like to read,  play with my daughter, Aria, and I'm obsessed with tattoos.  I go to church every Sunday.  My priorities are God, Aria, and school; in that order.

Utopia, Ohio, is approximately one hour from Thomas More College, on US-52 near New Richmond. This particular utopia existed in two forms. First, from 1844-46, the community was known as the "Clermont Phalanx" and organized according to the utopian visions of Charles Fourier (1772-1837). After the failure of the Clermont Phalanx, the "individualist anarchist" Josiah Warren founded Utopia, a community whose economy was organized according to Warren's "principle of equivalents." Warren's principle made cost, rather than "value", the limit of price.

" The word cost is used in its most philosophical and most comprehensive and exact sense - Signifying the endurance of whatever is disagreeable."

 "Fatigue of mind or body is Cost. Responsibility which causes anxiety is Cost. To have our time or attention taken up against our preferences -to make a sacrifice of any kind - a feeling of mortification - painful suspense - fear- suffering or enduring anything against our inclination, is here considered COST."

" If a barrel of flour cost its producers, carriers, and venders thirty hours' labor, then thirty hours of any other labor, whether with the hands or the mind, which was equally painful, disagreeable, or repugnant (if Wanted by the other parties), would constitute an equitable and legitimate price for the flour."
