Karl Marx was right.
I consider myself a relatively orthodox communist, although "vulgar Marxist" would be the most accurate summary of my ideological leanings.
I am a passionate advocate for Palestinian self determination, and support a one state solution without any religious considerations as a just resolution to the Israel/Palestine conflict.
On top of the usual issues that come with being a Marxist, I am very interested in the geopolitical dynamics of the middle east and central asia, with Edward Said, Norman Finkelstein, Noam Chomsky, and Asad AbuKhalil being my favorite authors on the subject. Unfortunately, my views on these topics often clash with the new atheist authors, and many of my fellow atheists. As a result, the majority of my contributions to rationalwiki relate to the larger Muslim world.
I am also a terrible writer.
