Hi, I guess I'd describe myself as kind of a refugee from another forum to which I cannot return. I enjoy cooking, reading, learning, consuming quality films, listening to music, watching law themed television shows, going on walks, and spending quiet time by myself. Politically speaking I have changed over the past year. I have become convinced that democracy, and its expansion through the expansion of voting rights or its expansion through its growth in other countries has been a total sham. I am of the opinion that the powers that be counted on it that the common man was stupid and so great in number that he could drown out any intelligent voices. Simply put, I think the elites have designed democracy to create conflict among the middle and lower classes so that we do not pay attention to them. They know that the average man is a fool and will consistently make the wrong decision ethically, and logically. To this end, I personally reject the concepts of individual liberty and natural born rights. Sorry, I tend to ramble a bit.
