Introduction Just three words encapsulate my philosophy: I love life. Not just my own life, but the concept of life. Your life. His life. Her life. Their lives. It's all precious to me and it's something that I've been fascinated by ever since I was a child. I want to make life for everybody as wonderful as it has been for me. I realize I am a man of privilege, but in resonance with the ideas of the late, great John Rawls--I'm not entitled to any of it. And it's time to spread that privilege around.
Interests Philosophy, politics, weightlifting, socializing, being super extroverted, and loving life.
Favorite Music Anything that is lovely.
Favorite Books A Treatise of Human Nature, Justice, A Theory of Justice, The Grand Design, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, La Divinia Comedia, God is Not Great, SuperCapitalism, A Critique of Pure Reason, and many more.

If you could imagine yourself outside the bounds of reality, and before you are to decide how society, institutions, and government would be structured, what kind of system would you decide on? Here's the catch--you won't know what you'll be when you go back in because your status in society will be randomly selected.
