About Me:I love all things intellectual and philosophical. I spend most of my time researching and thinking about topics ranging from the ethics of government to the nature of aesthetics to the philosophy of mathematics. - Right now, I am studying computer science in college. I love the subject and, simply put, programming is fun. My ultimate dream is to contribute to the fields of cryptography and security. In the ideal world, the entire internet operates on top of a privatizing and anonymizing network like Tor or I2P. I want to make that a reality. - I was homeschooled through high school and I competed in team policy debate and individual events. I did a bit of parliamentary debate in my first year of college. Personally, I regret never trying Lincoln-Douglas. - I am currently coaching a speech and debate club and I love to go to tournaments to judge. I am also toying with several ideas for software and websites (e.g. research software) to improve the competition and the community.
Beliefs:The main foundation underlying my conclusions about society is that people should be free, and that society is happiest when people pursue their own interests and passions. I need to be convinced beyond reasonable doubt that it is necessary for anyone to interfere in anyone else's life. The more forceful the interference, the smaller my doubt must be. That is why I am libertarian. I tend to become less libertarian over time because I am always observing more and more evidence that reduces my doubts. In debates, I do love to play devil's advocate. The best way for me to understand others' arguments is to argue for them and the best way to understand my own arguments is to argue against them.

Legalization of Illicit Drugs

philosopicalcat
daem0n

Drug prohibition has been a huge disaster with terrible consequences. Economics of legalization and drain on budget (prohibition) 1. More than $51,000,000,000 is spent on the war on drugs annually. 2. Tax revenue that drug legalization would yield annually, if currently-illegal drugs were taxed at rates comparable to those on alcohol and tobacco: $46.7 billion 3. Cartels' biggest selling drug is cannabis, legalization would give that money to legitimate businesses and the states through...
