I'm busy getting involved with local activism
Having formerly been on board with Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign and finding myself squarely in the green quadrant of the political compass now, my political development's been shifting -- and Trump's only been making me feel a stronger sense of duty toward developing a philosophical system/approach to the issues. Being in Portland, studying philosophy at a liberal university, and from associating with serious and thoughtful socialists and anarchists, I've been tackling many issues in the field of political science from an analytic perspective : one which is often undervalued when dealing with Marxism, a field dominated by Hegelians and postmodernists (wretch)

As my academic and political life progress this quarter, I'll be dropping a few decent essays and field notes here. In preparation for my future political event, I've minimized my social media presence. Apologies for not posting on Twitter.

Here's my primer on vaping, for people who are interested in making the switch.
Here's some pipe tobacco reviews

A lot of men shave each day. What's the best way to do it?
|The classic safety razor!|
Safety razors are less common than disposable razors these days. It seems like they're currently seeing a surge in popularity, along with straight razors. Unlike straight razors, safety razors are lower maintenance and a lot closer to Bics and Gillettes in terms of operation. A good razor has a bit of weight to it and a comfortable handle, and being made of stainless steel, it should last quite a while!
