I'm a Marxist-Leninist activist for revolutionary intercommunalism. I'm also an avid student of economics and philosophy. I love history. I read all the time. I live in the ghetto.

A few bullet points:

1.) Family structure drives social welfare.

2.) Entrepreneurship is good, support easing restrictions on start-ups.

3.) Support for a "pax-Americana" foreign policy, a tempered PNAC.

4.) No racial quotas.

5.) Skeptical of multiculturalism.

6.) Skeptical of non-skilled immigration in an era of skill-biased technological change. Generous "super-immigrants" such as doctors, engineers, Nobel Prize Laureates, Billionaires. Generally allow pro-American foreigners to receive asylum.

7.) No catering or special privileges to any religious group through the state. The US is a Christian-majority country, not a "Christian nation". Oppose teaching creationism and intelligent design as science.

8.) Support general drug legalization, with hefty sin taxes.

9.) Free trade with as many nations as possible as a default policy, to be revoked for diplomatic reasons in the future.

10.) Support countercyclical taxation policy, rates increased as economy performs better, and reduced when it performs badly. A smoother business cycle. Higher taxes than Clinton had in the 1990s and lower than Bush had in the 2000s.

11.) Embrace new emerging technologies in biotechnology, nanotechnology, information technology, etc.

12.) Hostile to unions.

13.) Abortion after first heart-beat should be heavily discouraged.

14.) Block people with criminal records and mental health issues from buying guns. Otherwise....

15.) Infosocialism

16.) Technological Determinism

17.) Humanist

18.) Subsidies to basic research can yield very high returns, as they have done for the computer, the internet, and through NIH.  

19.) "Nudging"

20.) Death penalty should be an option for violent criminals.
