Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
After years of shameless freeloading, I was finally compelled to join the Ricochet community this weekend. Would that I could say this action was prompted by a particularly persuasive entreaty by Rob Long which rendered further avoidance inconceivable. While I could defensively insist that it has long been my intention to become a member, I will refrain from offering excuses. My ultimate motivation for joining Ricochet was a heightened need, brought about by recent events, to seek a level of ideological kinship not presently available to me.
Beyond my nuclear family (i.e., parents and siblings), the circles in which I travel are overwhelmingly left-leaning. As an introverted, lifelong resident of the Boston area employed in the Arts, there is little opportunity to make any connections of a right-of-center persuasion. It is my sincerest wish that this forum will assist in filling that void.
It is my intention to post with some regularity. In addition to conservative/libertarian politics, my main points of interest include opera/operetta/classic musical theatre, Gilbert & Sullivan, Shakespeare, and silent cinema, and I expect that I will feel motivated to expound upon these and other topics with greater frequency than on politics. I hope that some of my fellow Ricochetti will find my musings of sufficient interest to indulge me.Published in
