About Me:DDO since early 2015; this site has significantly changed my life. Disclaimer: My views on various issues, ranging from feminism to economics, have significantly changed since I joined. In fact, I held some views that I now consider indefensible. Many of the forum posts I made, and debates I participated in, are now in no way representative of my real views.
Activities:Mostly school-related activities, often formal debate, sometimes DDO. I've started playing online chess and listening to music for leisure.
Beliefs:I'm a modern liberal and a feminist. I believe in representative democracy under the framework of a constitution, with emphasis on protection for minorities. I also support a strong, independent central banking system, environmental protection, and comprehensive animal welfare legislation.
Books:Sapiens, What Happened, Understanding Power, Manufacturing Consent, Collapse, Animal Liberation, Practical Ethics, The Extended Phenotype, David and Goliath, The Point of View of the Universe, Sophie's World, Feminism Is For Everybody, The Story of Philosophy
Music:Snow Patrol, Paramore, Radical Face, Ben Howard, Radiohead, Mazzy Star, Civil Twilight, Yanni, Rickie Lee Jones, Pink Floyd, Alanis Morissette, Sufjan Stevens, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Linkin Park, Chvrches, Massive Attack, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, The Black Ryder, The Rolling Stones
