About Me:I am an advocate of Skepticism, Sophism and Criticism. I like to make the weaker argument stronger, through a rhetorical approach. I enjoy debating [obviously] and I find philosophy interesting and profitable. I may be the first sophist, but I am not a liar nor do I use tricky, seemingly sophisticated, language in order to confuse people, despite the typical ideology of sophistry. Nonetheless, I must fulfill my obligation; I am here to regain, what has been lost. - Protagoras of Abdera
Beliefs:Of all things the measure is Man, of the things that are, that they are, and of the things that are not, that they are not.
Quotes:There are two sides to every question.

Resolved: Economic Sanctions ought not be used to achieve foreign policy objectives.
