Greetings, Mr. Jones! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Feb. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Well, that sure took me a shamefully long time to respond to! I get active on the internet for a while and then get immersed in the schoolwork--tedious, time-consuming, technical 3D animation assignments and delightful stress/screen-related migraines. And then I get back around the intertubz once I get a nice, relaxing class (like college math!), and it is not pretty! For this and all my (internet) sins, I am heartily sorry! ;)
But enough 'bout me--how 'bout you? Uhm...sounding some agreement with some of the commenters here. A philosophy/psych/polsci major with socialist leanings...here? Heck, I'm amazed you're not getting more hits! But I don't understand most chicks anyway, never did. :)
I don't think anyone has asked me that yet! Actually had to think about that for a bit.
I'd probably give it a try, but always keeping in mind that my brother's girlfriend said the same thing. At first, anyway. Not sure if guys are quite as much like that, so I might have better luck.
A-course, unlike my brother, relocation is less of a dream and more of a necessity if I'm going to pay back my exhorbitant student loans. So, unlike my brother, I'm California-bound with or without any SO I might have picked up in the meantime.
That is a good question that I hadn't considered. Amazingly enough, since it seems like an obvious one. Which is the reason for what seems to me an overly-detailed answer--it's going on my own page too.
Capitalism has some good points--mainly giving an important sense of self-efficacy--but without socialist tempering, I think the only place it can go is some sort of feudalism. (I think there might be some people who would love to see that happen, though!)
Well said, Mr Fox Jones.
And Einstein said something like: "We are all ignorant but not ignorant of the same things".
