About me

I have a profile picture now!

#1 Anti-death-penalty advocate.

Expert chess player, amateur debater. I mostly play mafia these days because I'm more focused on IRL competitive debate. I still might do a debate sometime, though.

I live by this quote: "Trust is 10 percent incorrect. The rest is death drive."

My favorite debater on this site is Bones, closely followed by Intelligence_06.

My political positions (aka me fishing for arguments):

-Sensible gun control legislation should be implemented
-Affirmative action in colleges and universities should be phased out
-Abortion in the first two trimesters should be a right
-We should have universal healthcare
-Free speech, freedom of religion, and voting rights are all fundamental tenets of democracy that should (almost) never be violated
-The criminal justice system should focus on rehabilitation, not punishment (strongly against the death penalty)
-Climate change is a serious issue that we need to base public policy around
-GMOs and nuclear power are necessary for a sustainable future
-The US should spend more on education and less on the military
-The ends don't justify the means (I mean this in a broad, philosophical way)
-Minimum wage should be raised to $15
-The government should implement targeted financial aid to help poor college students

If you would like to debate me on any of these issues, send me a friend request and we can create a debate.

" In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed."
