About Me I like to think and talk and need to keep a constant eye on how pretentious I might become. I'm reflective, sometimes to the point of inaction. I believe in non-violence, but love action films. Within the same year two people described me as a "pragmatic pseudo-Marxist" and a "well-meaning Liberal Statist." I believe in neo-classical economics, but hate the untrammeled power of the free market. I like taking the opposite side of an debate just so I can see what people will say.

I think I'm still a work in progress.

I hope that is true until I die.
