Born in Chicago, lived there for many years. Also have lived elsewhere in the Great Lakes and Nevada. Currently live in an undisclosed location in dark blue Illinois.
I studied International Relations in college, which means I was force fed Marxism. I know the Left quite well, and became a contrarian once I gained the full faculties of adulthood. I work in academia, but thankfully not in pedagogy.
I am a Libertarian, and shoe-horn a kind of social conservatism into a non-religious world view. I once drank a lot of Randianism too quickly and vomited it up, so I stay away from the stuff. I am not a Randian, but a Coolidgian. I don't believe in a personal God or revelation. I'm fine with being called an atheist, although I take Christian ethics seriously. While I'm an atheist, according to Christian definitions, let me articulate that: this does not define me, nor does it mean I hate religious people. I actually share much of the world view of quietism, which is seeing something divine in the everyday existence of the Universe.
