Labels allow for an easy pigeon-holing of concepts for those who are happy not to think. So, as I provide some labels for myself, allow for the possibility that I am more than the sum of these parts. Just as you are.

I’m a humanist misanthrope, a philosopher, a monist (materialist), a liberal with a closer association to socialism than capitalism; which isn’t the same thing as being a socialist. On the political spectrum of deep red, purple (neutral) to deep blue, I’m on the red side of the spectrum. I am, for all that the word is worth, left-wing. This, along with my Scottish descent, is the reason for my online pseudonym.

Everything else about me can be learned by reading my blog.
