I guess this is going to be the introduction of myself, so lets get over it (more quickly, than midmull, I hope…).
I’m a university student in a reasonably big european City (I study engineering there), I’m twenty and a half years old and I just decided to start a blog.
Firstly something of what I think this blog is going to be about. As I suspect I am not only going to be midmulls adversary in (hopefully) many, very controversial “Talks” (Lets call them talks, since there will hardly be any monologues here – or so I hope, because I don’t want to write just for the sake of writing (or for the audience – nothing against you, dear reader), but also for my own sake, to broaden my horizon and to test and improve my views) but also will I try to be the word of reason, when midas (did I just write that? – I mean midmull, of course), is once again stuck in his views.
As of my views, I won’t give you a list (as midmull did) of what my main topics are, since I don’t know myself, just as of yet. I have found in the last couple of years, that I didn’t have the fixed, well tested views, as I suspected. When I read Atlas Shrugged, I began to recognize the very simple logic behind it, which I found quite compelling. I was very fond of social security and such, back then, but this was set to change. I realized that liberalism was the way to go, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. But as compelling and simple liberalism may sound, in practice there are still many issues that aren’t as black an white as some libertarians want us think they are. So lets call me a skepticist, since that’s what I’ve been since I can think.
Well, that’s it. Approximately 300 words, just half of what midmull wrote, so it’s ok I guess.
Ah, the raw numbers, I forgot.
- Economic Left/Right: 5.38
- Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.15
