I largely define myself through my positions on political and/or ethical questions rathern than through my free-time activities. Even though life has made me rather cynical I always *try* to be optimistic which sometimes can be pretty difficult given the stupidity of humanity in general. By and large I am a social-democrat though the european greens are close to my position on quite a few issues as well. I am also largely pro-EU and I'd favour further political integration.
