I'm a political and gaming nerd, bisexual, teetotaler, and pacifist. My politics can best be classified as Libertarian Socialist (i.e. anti-authoritarian far left). I'm a native of Texas, enjoy classical music, and am very bland in dress, cuisine, and speech.
My Interests include history, politics, gaming, sustainable technology, reading, futurism, socialism, alternative energy, poetry, and philosophy.

Last night I dreamed of a wonderful number:
Even or odd, the constant is unknown.
Integrated twice to produce half a square,
Limits approaching all things, all ways;
Absolute it must be, and never negative,
Triggered in a sine so holy to double the prize
Omega, being found, defines an perfect… Read full post »
When my hand with ring is filled,
And finger is bound in gold,
The life of another in me is sealed
Forever embracing a hold.
Not this do I want, I say unto thee,
For love can never be chastened.
The undying embers burn within me
Shouting out to be unfastened.

Anyone who has watched even five minutes of news coverage in the last three weeks, particularly with presidential politics, has probably heard the word “socialism” tossed around several times by half a dozen economic panelists, politicians, and television pundits of the major news network… Read full post »

When the company was chartered, several items were critical… Read full post »
Most people will tell you that they think Feudalism was a
horrible, oppressive system. On the flip side, Capitalism is viewed
with the greatest admiration. There are many reasons for this, and
none of them are too surprising.
First off, when the (classical) Liberal Revolutions were going on in Europe… Read full post »
Human Nature, what is it? Some have said that it is the tendency
of humans to be of a "sinful" disposition. Others may claim that it
is the constant desire for more of everything. To me, human nature
is neither of those things.
Human nature cannot be properly observed. We live… Read full post »
The industrialized capitalist world is beginning to drown amidst its own prosperity. Though global warming may one day physically drown the populations of earth, a far more likely prospect is that the increasing usage of rapidly-depleting fossil fuel resources will create enough acid rain concentrati… Read full post »
Several years ago I wrote a little essay on some of the primal portions of human nature. Amongst them I decided that all animals have at least the need for nourishment, entertainment, sexual release, and security. However, I do not want to focus on all parts of my essay, just from… Read full post »
I was having a deep, though somewhat confusing, conversation on
the nature of love a few days ago. It was during that time that I
realized what had been missing from the equations I had been trying
to evaluate from arguments about human nature.
