About
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.

I think “Wanna Cupcakes?” means “Do you want to cup cakes?” i.e., put cakes into cups, like so:

“We must commit sudoku.”

Yes. As the ancient customs dictate. Sudoku is the way of the warrior.

Back sleeping is a bitch when it comes to snoring.

Commented on Kim Jong Un

Which is why we tend to make neither filmmakers nor comedians diplomats. Or Internet users, as all the KJU macros would effectively send him into a conniption if they were taken as having actually been from diplomatic officials.
Besides, British filmmakers made a W. assassination mockumentary in 2006 called Death of a President. C’est la cinema. Don’t worry. All he needs is a nice, relaxing, perfect round of golf and he’ll be fine.

Though we all know what sexualizes ponies is not nudity, but clothes. So watching ponies put clothes on must be the equivalent of watching people get undressed as humans.

Commented on Fat Acceptance Movement

A movement about having self-esteem and fighting bullying based on body image? Well that sounds reasonable and worth suppo-…

Oh, wait, no. This is about fighting even legitimate, health-conscience statements about being overweight and obese.

Live the life you want. I’m not going to make fun of someone because of the way they look. But I’m also not going to pretend that obesity isn’t a health problem, that it’s beyond the realm of legitimate critique, and that volitional choices related to diet and exercise don’t contribute to that problem.

Full disclosure: I say this as an man who was underweight most of his teenage and early adult years. I had to work to gain weight -- both more exercise to produce muscle mass and a more balanced diet -- and I did work at it, because I wanted to be healthy.
