I’m 22 years old and a graduate of the University of Georgia in history and political science. I recently finished my senior thesis with a research grant from the Center of Undergraduate Research Opportunities on Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Counter-Enlightenment thought. I won the 2013 Pi Sigma Alpha essay contest in UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs on the question of whether American culture tends to emphasize being an individual over being a citizen. The essay can be read here.

I am attending the Duke University School of Law. I will graduate with a law degree an an M.A. in History in 2017.

I am a prolific writer. My friend and I frequently write essays in politics, philosophy, history, and world events.

Religiously, I am a Christian as a member of the Church of Christ at Oglethorpe. I do not believe that miracles occur in the modern day, that God “speaks” to individuals in the modern day except through the Bible, or that religious belief is a justification for political policy. In fact, I believe the two should be strictly separated.

That brings us to the next section: politics. I am a capitalist. That means I believe that the only reason any government should exist is the protection of the individual rights of its citizens. In essence, I believe that each man (or woman) is the owner of himself (or herself), and that to infringe on that ownership (i.e. to violate another’s rights) is the only thing the government has the authority to regulate. Anything more than that becomes a violation of man’s self-ownership in and of itself.
Fluttershy is my favorite pony.

I find Catelyn Stark from Game of Thrones inexplicably attractive:

I’m also a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge.

My favorite movie score is from How to Train Your Dragon:

Political drama is, unsurprisingly, one of my favorite movie genres. Some of my favorite movies include Lincoln, Charlie Wilson’s War, Amazing Grace (2006), and The King’s Speech.

I think everyone should see the final Twilight movie (I went with my girlfriend -- she watches it for the lulz too) just to hear Kristen Stewart’s vampire sex talk. It’s side-splittingly hilarious.

I think Wreck-It Ralph deserved the Oscar for best animated film over Brave -- by a lot.

Even so, I love that Brave introduced me to Julie Fowlis. I want to use this song as a lullaby for future children -- it’s fantastic:

I’ll add more as I think of it, but you can also ask random questions and I may pick a few to field.

Commented on Robin Williams

My brother just happened to turn to the news right when it was breaking.

My mind kept thinking, “He’s not really gone. It’s just some role they’re talking about. There’s got to be some miscommunication.”

I didn’t want to believe it, but it didn’t take long to realize that I had to.

Closest thing KYM has to a Robin Williams page at the moment. I’m sure we’ll get one later.

We’ll miss you, Robin Williams.

That’s… that’s not what… that quote…

Eh, nevermind. You do you, Lyra. You do you.

Commented on Who are you?

INTJ’s are also know as “Masterminds.”

I.e., Luna is a mastermind. I knew I liked Luna.

Though I’m actually about 50/50 on Introverted and Extroverted, so I’m also partially TGaP Trixie, which also suits me.

Commented on Jan Animations Panel: Copyright Claims Detailed, With Both Hasbro and Jan's Team Coming Up with Something Good

It does. Hasbro, like most companies, just hires teams of lawyers to be like, “Protect our IP and contracts for us.” It saves the brass the trouble of combing through everything themselves and having to get bogged down in the details of legal matters.

Unfortunately, that also has the effect of them not being able to make exceptions when they find instances worthy of one.
