I’m a native New Yorker, Jewish twentysomething, and a history and politics buff. I have strong political views that don’t really fit into the standard left-right dichotomy (I have issues with that as well, but that’s a different story.) Whether it’s ethical, religious, or political in its nature, I despise dogmatism. Both the mainstream left and mainstream right’s talking points irritate me for differing reasons, so I try to think for myself based on provable facts, such as statistics and nonpartisan studies on issues. I wrote this blog as a medium to express these views so that more people on both ends can have their dogmatic political views challenged in a civil, logical, and gentle manner.
