I'm a nerd. I like to learn. I like books. I like to write and discuss. It's what I do.
I'm also a vegetarian. I make a pretty random exception for sushi. In a world where I had a stronger will, I'd probably be a vegan - but I'm not judgmental.
I'm very "politically active." I'm a leftist radical and I'm committed. The basic idea is that I oppose hierarchical relationships of all kinds - particularly and most vehemently capitalism. Essentially, I think society ought to be organized for the sake of the well-being and autonomy of all equally; rather than the profit of a few exclusively. Although a passionate polemicist and enthusiastic observer of the Occupy Movement, I was not a camper. I'd be happy to discuss my reservations as well as my support any time.
I'm much less pretentious than I sound.
