I consider myself more left than right, and while I'm totally against TNC's, I don't see why publicly owned companies can't be efficient and innovative. I don't go in for all-encompassing terms like "capitalism" or "communism", as I believe that each has aspects of benefit that can be teased out from within the mangled mess that too many have made out of them to further their own causes.
I'm looking for someone who doesn't have it all worked out yet, but who's started the journey. Someone who wants to tackle big/important things in their time, and who has a big 'ol conscience and plans to make amends for their part in North America's rape of those too vulnerable to defend themselves. I'm looking for someone who doesn't want some big 'ol domestic life (except kids, kids are cool :), but instead wants adventure, to see new places and live amongst different cultures. Someone to bounce wild ideas off of, and to hear them from. Someone who loves to learn and is hungry for knowledge and formulating new thoughts. And also someone to help think up fun/interesting things to do until the money/travel opportunities start rolling in.
Probably be good if you were pretty passionate about social justice and very interested in exploring/researching ways to help the working poor in our own country and in places like India and South America too (because I am, and spend a lot of time thinking about that kind of stuff, and I'd like to talk with you about it and bounce ideas off each other). That and changing/evolving our living environments to better suit us and provide more benefit to our shared community - both the physical built form, as well as socially constructed systems. But in general, just being interested and willing to discuss the improvement of things in our society.
And I should probably mention as well that after living in North Vancouver 3 years ago I grew a love for it that will never die, and so I will very likely move there in the next few years. Have you been to B.C.? Have you seen the majestic beauty exploding from the moss covered magical trees, or those mountains that are always just a turn of the head away... I love nature, but I die for B.C.'s version of nature (and the west coast in general). That being said, I will only end up on the west coast if I'm not in another country... South Korea is looking more and more like a place I will be spending a year or two in once my degree is obtained (end of 2014). Japan is sooooo close... Japan is sooooo awesome...
I'm still a few years away from doing most of the stuff just mentioned, and I imagine it would probably work out better if you were too. Most of all I'm looking for a friend to share ideas with and who sees life as a mission/adventure, not a race. I'm looking for someone who is kind, passionate, conscientious, open-minded, inquisitive, and driven. And while it would be ideal if you were the type of person I've been describing, as long as you're pretty close I think we'd have lots to talk about :)
I just wrote all this stuff and I hope I didn't make it seem as if I have done anything (yet) that backs up what I want to do (besides research). I'm just a guy whose read quite a bit (I think), and let his imagination run wild. Maybe I'll end up in Hooverville, maybe not :)
