About Alex


I am a 17 year old Jewish American. Everything I am interested in, and knowledgable about does not necessarily come from my very limited school curriculum. In fact most things I enjoy learning about could never be taught at a high school. I like to come up with my own theories that always tend to parallel previously stated theories but they are never exactly the same because for some reason my own mind likes to add a twist on everything. I also like to argue every side to every argument, which tends to leave me talking to, and arguing with, myself quite a lot.



An idea worth spreading

MY theory of a multi-verse which ultimately begs the question: If an infinite number of universe could quite possibly exist, why do we only experience the one that we experience?

I'm passionate about

Anything they don't try to teach me in my high school: i.e. philosophy, the universe, alternate history, politics etc.

Talk to me about

Anything. If I already know about the topic, that would make for very riveting conversation. If I have a limited scope of knowledge on the subject, I am always eager to learn.

People don't know I'm good at

Everything that you've just read in my profile. Very few of my peers know about my real interests because to them, I'm the slacker. But in reality, I'm home studying things that will never be assigned

If communism was working the way its progenitors wanted it to, would it be better than capitalism?
Well the question itself leads to more and more clarifying questions. For example, since the question asks us to look at communism in a vacuum where it would not be tainted by human action, but rather be able to work in it's intended manner; is the question also asking us to look at capitalism the same way? Or are we comparing intended communism to practiced capitalism. I'm very sorry I will be unable to answer your question. First of all, it's because there are many answers for many different versions of the question. But second (and most important) of all, I am simply a high school junior without the knowledge base to fully and accurately support any sides to this argument. I just thought I'd drop in and offer up a chance for some clarification on the question.
