I probably should've done this shit when I started on here but fuck it better late than never eh?
My political position is somewhere in the middle of social democracy and democratic socialism with some civil libertarianism, secularism and internationalism thrown in. I guess you could call me a classical social democrat, as I believe that a shift away from capitalism is the long term aim, though if that isn't feasible then I'm happy to settle for becoming Norway. I'm strongly opposed to authoritarianism, tribalism, nationalism(the bad kind), clan based thinking, fascism(obviously) and any and all attempts to run society based on the superstitions of cattle slaughtering nomads in bronze age and medieval Arabia.
As you could've probably guessed from my name and from the last line of the last paragraph I'm an atheist. I'll put it this way. On a scale of 1 to 7 where 1 is 100% believe there's a God and 7 is 100% believe there isn't one I'm about a 6 or 6.5. I can't be certain since at the end of the day no one can but I feel like all the arguments for a God or Gods existence(s) are full of logical fallacies. On top of this religions usually tend to be horribly immoral, the Abrahamic religions in particular. Ultimately I feel like a world with less dogma and Goddidit would be better for all of us.
I figured I'll tell you a bit more about me. I'm Irish, white, a cis dude,
greedy confused unwilling to admit I'm actually gay bisexual and in college. In other words my very existence is enough to give Arlene Foster a panic attack.
