Hi! I'm another migrant from reddit. So excited to have found hubski; this website seems structured to promote the quality discussion I love on reddit, without the bullshit.
About me, I'm an undergraduate student at an American university, majoring in political science (though I'm thinking about switching to history). I'm active politically; by ideology I'm a socialist. I like to write, and hope to establish myself as a freelance writer in the near future.
Tell me about yourself!

Thank you so much! This is incredible, I wasn't sure how I was going to cover January rent. Thank you again!
PM sent. Thanks!
Hi, here I am. How can I claim this?
That's awesome! When I was 19, I had a staff-like position on a mayoral campaign in my town too. That was also my freshman year of college, so lots of changes all around.
I agree completely that society needs to get better at using technology responsibly. Everything in moderation is probably the healthiest stance.
- Traveling? Moving off the grid? Willpower? What's prompting the change (if you don't mind my asking)?
Financial considerations. Once my current devices break down, I likely won't be able to replace them. Such are the joys of becoming independent. But like I said, I'm starting to see the bright side of living with pre-1991 technology.
I'm aware of the immigration crisis. If Golden Dawn came to power, we wouldn't see rival Greek and Immigrant armies, like in Yugoslavia. You'd probably see the ongoing anti-immigration violence heighten a bit, but the country would break apart in ideological civil war before XA could begin some kind of mass-murder campaign. If we're looking for historical analogies, Spain in the 30s fits the Greek worse-case scenario a lot better than the breakup of Yugoslavia.
Greece isn't a multi-ethnic state; there are no competing national identities within it borders and no threat of ethnic cleansing.
Sorry about the delayed reply, I don't seem to get notifications for second-level replies.
We're getting closer!
I don't see how either of those apply to the current situation.
- Now that Europe is trying oh-so-hard to counterbalance the USA, Germany is insisting that they can't waste money on those spendthrift Greeks because they know that if Greece goes to shit it will be American troops that will march on Athens.
You're going to have to explain this. I can't imagine a scenario where the US occupies Greece.
