Why do you consider Christopher Langan to be "To put it bluntly, Langan makes other philosophers seem like whiny, incompetent no-nothings by comparison. He is right, while everyone else is wrong. That is the difference."?
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

What is the most embarrassing thing about yourself that you would not tell people IRL? (Here, it doesn't matter because we don't know you IRL so you can be and say who you really are.)

What is the best aspect of DDO, in your view?

What is the worst aspect of DDO, in your view?

Who has been most influential in your life?

Do you like school? Why?

What don't you like about school?

Are you involved in extra curricular activities? If so, what? What do you think about them?

What do people have to know about you in order to understand you?

Haha you wish. I'll merely say that there are things which would be embarrassing for me to share.

The people.

What is the worst aspect of DDO, in your view?

The tendency of some members to engage in dishonest and counterproductive tactics.

Probably my parents.


Do you like school? Why?


Kinda.

What don't you like about school?


Are you involved in extra curricular activities? If so, what? What do you think about them?

I was involved in Ultimate Frisbee and Track. They were fun I guess.

Why have you made the switch from advocating FREEDOM and AMERICAN VALUES to advocating MARXISM and TOTALITARIANISM?
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Which philosophers have you read other than Rand and Langan?

What political system would you advocate?

When you meet / talk to people in real life, how often / soon - if at all - do you bring up and talk about your philosophical beliefs, CTMU, etc?

Do you believe the CTMU affects your everyday life? (As in, things not generally considered related to philosophy / science.)
"Logic is the money of the mind." - Karl Marx

Aristotle, Nietzsche, Hume, Kant, Russel, Marx, Machiavelli, Adam Smith...I'm probably forgetting some.

A democratic-technocracy coupled with a eugenics program.

lol I don't. It's not exactly conversation material.

Yes. I spend a lot of time thinking about it, and it's given me piece of mind and made me happier overall.

I think I ended with a 3.2 or something. That includes my last two semesters which were completely horrible (like 1.0). Before that, I averaged around a 3.5. Thankfully I got away with it, because UO didn't even care.

Lol, I'm junior right now and expect to finish this year with between a 3.5 and a 3.6. Hopefully I don't fvck up my senior year. Did you take the ACT or SAT? If so, how did you do?

It's very easy to do. I took the SAT and got 2110 I think.
