Hometown: New England

We must turn the tables on the unethically rich, the unfairly powerful, and the way they write our history and future. Mindless organized religion needs to be stopped, and mega-cults like the Catholic Church must be made to share power and wealth. Pedophilia, guilt complexes, and homophobia are pretty much the only things to come out of the Catholic Church. (oh yeah and a bunch of torture devices). The art and any remnants of good philosophy to come from these organizations can surely be kept as a part of human history, but the organizations themselves are damning the world's people. Women make up 51% of the world's people- the majority. They make up 70% of the world's poor. A successful revolution needs to be led by women and pro-woman individuals. Birth and reproductive health must be reclaimed as empowering to women, not issues of pain and disease. 3rd world nations suffer lack of education/birth control/human rights- we must help by sending literature/condoms/food.
I am an philosopher, feminist (NOT afraid to say it!), amateur novelist and writer, and budding traveler. I studied history and film in college, and learned ten times more about each subject outside of "official" education! I support justice!
