Occupations: metaphysician, proofreader to the world.
My goal in recording thoughts here isn't necessarily to start a debate. I just write what I feel. Neither is my purpose to upset my LJ friends, nor to convince them of my POV, nor to homogenize my friends list by attrition. I admire those who disagree with what they read here and let it pass, as I try to do when I have nothing useful to say in reply to their posts.
At the same time, anyone who wants to take issue with an issue I raise is welcome; maybe I'll accept the challenge and both our wits will get a sharpening. But shots fired directly at me I will probably ignore. Who I am is not up for debate.
That said, I'd rather make you laugh than make you mad. I minimize or privatize my political posts for that reason.
