Convince me to what Philosophy I should follow.

The Fool: lol, It doesnt' work like that. You take the best arguments of each, and disgard the rest.

The Fool: and with that you build a collection of knowledge, by taking the very strongest arguments. Then you organize them into a coheret form of ideas(your structure of knowlege) You kickout contradicting information(knowledge refinement)

The Fool: And then you use that organized structure to launch arguments from. Philosophy is and active process of knowledge acquisition. You got to know when to accept refutatoin and cut off the bad pieces and take in the stronger pieces..
And then you have a Hill of knowledge to see far! The function of knowledge is to predict AKA determine the Universe.

Adapt, and question everything on a constant basis without letting it cripple you. Be a conduit of chaos.

"If it feels good do it. If something goes wrong, blame somebody else." -George W. Bush

I shall tell you that you will have no philosophy.

I will be wrong only for a very short time of eternity.

Morally I'm an egoist, Politically, I'm a libertarian. I'm not sure which you were referring to, but as Egoism defines life choices I'm assuming thtat works for the topic.

I won't try to convice you, though I don't advize stoicism. Just choose whatever you want. Personally I value utilitarianism and hedonism the most, though I wouldn't bother to argue them right. They just appeal to me.
