Hello. I'm Radical. Nice to meet you.

I'm so sick of hearing "radical" in response to my political views as if that makes a counter-argument. "Radical" just means my views are far from the mainstream. So yea, I guess I'm radical - and it's right at the top of my "who gives a f*?" list. (And folks, that's a LONG list). I strive to have logical views shaped by objective reality; and being "radical" has 0 bearing on this in either direction. Galileo was radical, and so was Kim Il Jong. If you want to debate me, have the courage to tell me I'm 'wrong' - and have a backing other than 'you're different'.
