It’s hard where to start with me. I’m still struggling to find myself so trying to characterise myself will be difficult.
I am 4 years clean after a heroin addiction which left me in a coma followed by 22 reconstructive operations in just two years. However, this doesn’t define me in the slightest – other than to prove my strength and fight inside!
My interests are super boring for a 30 year old. I love to read as it has always been my escape from reality. I’ll read anything from Orwell to Huxley and from the communist Manifesto to Mao and his culture revolution.
I have always had a love for learning since I left school when I was 12. A case of you always want what you can’t have. Nether the less I went to college at 21 and got accepted on a Biomedical science degree. The longer I studied this science and the way case studies can be manipulated depending on who the funders are etc. It didn’t sit right with me. The last straw was reading a book called Bad Pharma which really opened my eyes to the despicable acts carried out by Big Pharma. This became more of s personal issue then I could have ever imagined when my addiction began with prescription drugs and went on to nearly kill me.
Politics is my biggest passion at the minute. I mean, how can it not be with everything going on. I am English but I have, for the past two years or so, took more of an Interest in geopolitical issues. Mainly focusing on American as I see it as a microcosm of the West. As well as thoroughly studying the history and current state of the CCP and how the could quite possibly become the world’s number 1 economic wise. Which truly terrifies me! Authoritarianism, totalitarianism, police state, concentration camps (which nobody seems to want to discuss) and the huge threat they are to the world as we know it.
I’m new to this so apologies if I’m not getting the drift of it. I just really crave Intellectual conversations and amicable/cordial exchanges. Whether our views as as polarised as can be.
I’m sure I’ll be adding more to this but for now I’d say that’s s pretty good description of my interests and even a little personal information.
So please feel free to chat away with me and my refreshing open-mindedness
Peace and positive vibes always ✌
