As a human being, my nature is fluid and adaptive. I am capable of many things, and am not caught in a mythological trap that some cynics call "human nature." Among my capabilities are kindness and compassion, passion for justice and equality, honesty, and rational thought. I am also capable of things such as hypocrisy and greed, but I try to nurture the part of myself that is more inclined toward social and communal stability.
Some may call me an optimist, yet others call me a pessimist. However, I am aware of all of the potentials of our species, hence, I am a realist.
I love animals, dancing, writing, and spending long hours on the internet being completely unproductive. I have found recently that I have an affinity for asparagus and macaroni and cheese. I fear this will soon pass, however. The food here is "eh." I really miss New York pizza.
I am an atheist, a humanist and a naturalistic pantheist. I created my own spirituality when I was fourteen. I am a very rational person, and I have little tolerance for dogmatic religion and practices like homeopathy, both of which are incredibly dangerous and not based in reality.
Also, I hate Ayn Rand with an obsessive passion.
I have been asked about my reading background, and how I came into the political philosophy I now hold so dear. I was brought up by parents who have very similar beliefs to me, and they both do hard work trying to change their world and community: My mother helps people with psychological problems, and my father is a revolutionary high school teacher. I have read the Communist Manifesto, a bit of Proudhon and Goldman, as well as some Adam Smith, Amartya Sen, Noam Chomsky, James Lovelock, and Daniel Quinn, and I tried to read Rand (lol).
If you would like to know more about me, please go to my website. I have five blogs as well.
I am insightful, bizarre, and compassionate
