  1. What is the Point?

    Here I am again dealing with partisans from all sides. Every day we see people assuming what the truth is, when no one seems to know the truth. It's just so damned frustrating, isn't it?

    I figure I could put my energy into being some learned conservative or liberal, but what's the point?

  4. The Inquisitor

    [I]Post #2,663 is the beginning of my new stance. A new worldview, per se. It will not be an abandonment of my true views; they will now be kept silent and be forgotten in time.

    I desire knowledge, increased intelligence, wisdom, and experience. I want to know why people believe what they believe.

    My ideology is slowly being pieced together as this:
