This is a place for politics, and thought. I hope to facilitate discussions that will perpetuate mental growth for those who participate, and to find compromise in the most minuscule of forms for that is where true change starts – in the mind. I believe in bringing to the fore of a discussion the differences, the arguments, the facts, the opinions and concluding with the similarities for which solutions are groomed. We need less bickering in politics and congress, and we need more activists outside of congress. This is only one place to begin. Enjoy.
I am 27 years old. I am lucky to have been born male, and white. I was, for all that it may have been worth, born into various dominant categories for which society gives privilege to. I have earned a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. For my Undergraduate work, I double majored in Psychology with an emphasis on Diversity Issues, and Political Science with a double concentration in international relations and pre-law. I also minored in History, and Philosophy with an emphasis on theology.
I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am, in varying degrees the sum of my parts. Parts which seep through my pores as opinions based on facts and observations through an infinite desire to learn and explain the world for which I live in. For these reasons, I am in varying degrees on different topics a Liberal, and a Conservative, and a Reactionary. I do not believe that single umbrella terms do justice for people as I view the world through the Tripartate Model, which says that humans are unique from everyone else, humans have similarities to others, humans are the same as every other. A paradoxical relationship. I do not have a religion but I have a love of all.
