About MeEdit

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain."
--Bene Gesserit Littany against Fear from Frank Herbert's novel Dune


I'm an African-American International Relations worker currently pursuing a Master's Degree in International Development. I am 27 years old and I hope to travel the world someday and meet people from every country I can as well as aid working class movements in other countries.

I'm well rounded in world history and I'm very well-versed in world political issues and American economics, social issues and politics. I'm into philosophical topics and I'm very knowledgeable about American race-relations, the anthropology of various religions and civilizations, politics, sociology and scientific topics. My scientific forte areas are Astrophysics and space exploration technology.

I'm a non-theist as I am neither a theist or an atheist. I prefer monistic philosophies, specifically the neutral and dialectical type, over materialism, idealism and dualism. Politically, I favor direct democracy and I consider myself an Anarchist without Adjectives. The world would be a much better place with workers' and counsumers' councils, commons, cooperatives and revolutionary trade unions replacing capitalist firms and I advocate copyleft over copyright. I am a libertarian socialist and I accept all anarchists and libertarian socialists in general (including libertarian Marxists and some anarcho-capitalists such as Georgist varieties) as comrades, along with some of the libertarian Right that genuinely cares about the working/middle-class, examples of such people like Karl Hess. I'm also influenced by post-left anarchism and Mutualism.
