Encamped along the hills of light,
Ye Christian soldiers, rise,
And press the battle ere the night
Shall veil the glowing skies.
Against the foe in vales below
Let all our strength be hurled;
Faith is the victory, we know,
That overcomes the world.

Age: 23

Sex: Male

Gender: Male

Race: White

Ethnicity: Scots-Irish

Religion: Atheist

Language(s): English only at this point, although I am in the process of learning Spanish and would like to learn Italian, French, German, and Russian at some point or another.

Location: Northwest Chicago Suburbs

Occupation: I have a teaching degree and am currently in the process of looking for a full-time teaching position or at least seeking to be able to act as a substitute in the interim. In the meantime, I'm working two jobs, both of them in retail. I move boxes off a truck early in the morning at one and work in the deli at the other one.

Political figures you most admire: Thomas Paine, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Abraham Lincoln, the Haymarket martyrs, Eugene Debs, William Morris, Vladimir Lenin, Alexandra Kollontai, Rosa Luxembourg, Leon Trotsky, Malcolm X, Angela Davis, Kshama Sawant

Favorite president: Abraham Lincoln

Political orientation: I'd like to say I'm more or less an unorthodox Trotskyist at this point. I firmly believe that the realization of socialism is something that is not only possible, but at this point, the only way human civilization is going to stand a chance of surviving the possibility of either ecological catastrophe or imperialist rivalries born out of neoliberalism. I believe that socialism has to come from below and it has to be the work of a self-conscious, activated working class, not the work of party, state, or trade union bureaucrats. I do think that a revolutionary party and revolutionary trade unions should be constructed, however, but these alone, acting within capitalist society, cannot win over the masses to socialism or implement a socialist program. I am a firm believer in worker control and management over production and an even firmer believer in the ability of the working class to rule itself in its own interest, without the need for a separate layer of reactionary parasites bilking its labor of 'enlightened' parasites of a social democratic or Stalinist bent attempting the same. I am for true and real democracy; that is, I want to replace judges with juries, police officers and the standing army with an armed populace, prisons with restorative justice and community service, and politicians with the people themselves, organized into workers councils chosen by lot.

Favorite book(s): The 'S' Word by Jon Nichols, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism by Ha-Joon Chang, Who Built America? by the American Social History Project, A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State by Friedrich Engels, State and Revolution by Vladimir Lenin, Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich

Favorite TV show(s): Trailer Park Boys, Beavis and Butthead, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Shameless, The Twilight Zone, Seinfeld, Parks and Recreation, Unsolved Mysteries (guilty pleasure), trashy daytime television, The Regular Show

Favorite movies: Reds, Harlan County USA, The Black Power Mixtape, the Star Wars trilogies, Terminator 2, Dumb and Dumber, Tommy Boy, Pineapple Express, Beavis and Butthead Do America

Other interests not involving politics: History (although I'm not convinced this is entirely separate from politics in any meaningful sense), specifically American History after the Civil War and of course, to get even more specific, American Labor History and the history of radical movements in the United States. The 'unexplained' or the 'supernatural' is something that I've gotten a bit of an interest in, not because I believe in either (as an atheist and materialist I reject the idea that anything is by nature 'unexplainable') but because I find it entertaining. I've also recently taken a lot of interest in firearms, self-defense, and everything that goes along with those.

Favorite color: Maroon, although I also don't mind red, orange, or green. I like autumnal/earthy colors.

Do you live by yourself? No, I'm currently living with my significant other.

Do you have any siblings? I have three step-siblings, one sibling, and two half-siblings.

Relationship status: In a relationship, will be hitting our two year anniversary on December 1st.

What year did you join Atlas? 2011

Have you ever been attracted to a person of the same-sex? Yes.

If you could pick your own nationality, which would you pick? I go back and forth on this, mostly because I don't really know what I would pick were I not an American. If I *had* to choose though, I guess I would pick Canadian, Irish, Scottish, German, Italian, Greek, or Russian. I don't really know, though, and I'm personally kind of glad this isn't a question I'll likely ever have to face, barring some kind of situation in which I'm being deported or fleeing the country.

A bit about Wolverine22

Age: 19

Sex: Male

Gender: Male-ish

Sexual orientation: Gay

Race: White

Ethnicity: Italian

Religion: Atheist

Language(s): English and some Spanish

Location: Kalamazoo, Michigan

Place you were born: Flint, Michigan

Occupation: College student, Aviation Management and Operations major with the intent of pursuing an MBA

Political figures you most admire: Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford, Harvey Milk, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Wendy Davis, Ann Richards, Jerry Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Pierre Trudeau, Justin Trudeau

Favorite president: Lyndon Baines Johnson

Political orientation: More of a moderate progressive. The reason being for that is because most of my political views have come more into the mainstream since I started getting interested in politics. Back then if you openly supported same-sex marriage and won elected office, you had to have been from Massachusetts as that was the only place you'd have a shot at getting elected. I'm pro-choice and being from a small, blue-collar town, I'm pretty pro-union. I call myself a Democrat simply because Democrats align closest to my views and the Republicans right now are just insane. The main thing that makes me a liberal is the fact that I'm a pragmatist and that ideology has never solved a problem, created a job, or pulled anyone out of poverty. If you met me, you'd find that I'm pretty candid and I think that plays a bit into my political views, is that I tell it like it is.

Favorite book(s): "Are you there vodka? It's me, Chelsea!"

Favorite TV show(s): Family Guy, The Simpsons, The Rick Mercer Report, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Law and Order SVU, daytime trash TV, The Ed Show

Favorite movies: Shawshank Redemption, Prayers for Bobby

Other interests not involving politics: Traveling, aviation, sports, and psychology.

Favorite color: Blue

Favorite Sports Team: Michigan, Western Michigan, Detroit Red Wings, New England Patriots

Do you live by yourself? For the most part.

Do you have any siblings? One younger brother.

Do you have any nieces, nephews?  Nope, and never will.

Have you ever been attracted to someone of the same sex? What do you think?

Relationship status: Forever alone...

What year did you join Atlas? 2014

If you could pick your own nationality, which would you pick? Canadian, Australian, or Italian. Just not American.

Do you live by yourself? Not at the moment, living with my significant other,
                                    but in Illinois, I live alone.

Do you have any siblings? Six older brothers

Relationship status: in a relationship

What year did you join Atlas? 2008

Do you have any nieces or nephews? 4 nieces, 4 nephews

Have you ever been attracted to a person of the same sex?  Not sexually, but in other ways, yes.

If you could pick your own nationality, which one would you pick?: German, I guess;
                                                        I sometimes think of myself as an "adopted Chinese" person,
                                                        given that I was previously married to a Chinese woman,
                                                        had a Chinese step-daughter, my current partner is from China
                                                        and I go there often--but I'd probably never reside there.
