Well f**k me hard, a Satanist Republican actually exists.

I've definitely seen it all now.

You both know I don't worship fire and brimstone, right? I'm not even a real part of the church, I just follow the idea of controlling your own life, not having a book do it.

That's called atheism/humanism/Unitarianism. Not trying to disrespect y'all or your church, just throwing my two cents in.

I'm not even part of the church. What differentiates me is that I base my actions off something, the 11 Rules and 9 Statements

LaVeyan Satanism is just Randian philosophy with Hellfire Club style ritual to annoy Christians.

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.
