My World

The quote "I am, therefore I'll think" by Ayn Rand basically sums my life view. I love Rand and objectivist philosophy, I love thinking about things, especially in the current political climate, and there are a whole bunch of other things I love (movies, baking video games, comics) and this blog basically explores all of that.

"You can blame the politicians, the businessmen, the generals, the “machine”, but really, if you’re looking to blame someone, blame me. I’m the American system, I’m the machine. That’s the price of living in a democracy; we all gotta take the rap."

Max Brooks, World War Z
