I believe that suffering (mental and physical) is the root of unhappiness, grief, & anguish and should be eliminated. Through this process, life will flourish, and society will improve.
I feel that the Republicans and Democrats simply make up a controlled duopoly bought and paid for by the corporations and simply serve as a false paradigm to distract the People as the corporations profit, and the nation plumits. As a result, I make sure to stay away from aligning myself with any single party because - personally - I feel that it only leads to partisan politics and I want to always have the clarity to understand the truth without bias, even if it is something I wish were not true. My political views have been described as Left-Centrist-Libertarian; I support many social Liberal issues, but overall I adopt a Libertarian POV.
I am very much a professional student; I love to learn. I have numerous certifications in what can be summarised as "health and the healing arts".
