It is hard to imagine a more politically active Conservative family than the one I was raised in. My father was an IBM executive for 28 years, and in his "spare time" he maintained an antique wooden sailboat and (with my mothers help) managed a private ski area. I left that world behind almost 25 years back, as I never got past the whole teenage rebellion phase. Why should I "get past it", when I am right, damn it!?! I become the pothead glassblower (My avatar is a close-up of one of my marbles), and my parents continued on their paths. My mother now works for Elections Canada, training and supervising the returnings officers amongst other things. My father is now in charge of the computer systems for Top Aces, a private consortium with their own fleet of fighter aircraft. Best I can describe things is to say my mother believes in the system and my father is just fully invested in it as the only game in town. Needless to say, we don't really see eye to eye on much at all, and simply have nothing to do with each other. I am a firm believer that politicians are crooks and/or chumps.
35 years old female, Pakistani/Indian origin. British. Live in London with my soulmate and our two year old daughter. Come from a liberal Muslim family. Dropped acid twenty years ago. Grew up on a council estate. Recently moved from a dodgy east end area into a mainly white middle class suburbia. I studied art at uni and went into radio then TV working on mainly documentaries. Now I'm a stay at home mum.
My religious beliefs are probably best described as heretical Muslim sufi type Acid inspired stuff. My political beliefs are liberal I suppose. I believe a government should provide safety nets for the people but I also think people should be allowed to do pretty much whatever so long as they are not harming anyone else.
I love most things psychedelic. Love music, art, film, reading, video games, politics, psychology, zombies (not real ones) and most things. But since having had a baby, my free time and brain are both in comatose states and I am hoping to revive them one day when school will take my little love away for large portions of the day. I like a lot of stuff. A lot. I want to eat your brain. But I'm not a zombie. Honest.
I'm a 21 year old male, born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but I moved to Toronto, Canada with my family when I was 16.
I enjoy philosophy, especially Nietzsche and Heidegger, I like to read, I am interested in European and Oriental history, I am interested in chemistry, biology, nature, politics and music, besides drugs.
I have always been interested in politics, my mother has never been very interested in politics but my father always has. I would struggle to label my own political thinking, I'd say I combine so-called ultra right-wing ideals with (so called) ultra left-wing ideals. Which has been rather difficult right up 'till now, but if you don't suffer for what you believe in, you believe in nothing.
