I have dramatically matured since first registering to be a member of these forums, now that I am in my 20's and no longer in my teens. I am currently an honest and simple human man who enjoys drawing, writing, cycling, grilling, and swimming.
My passions are diverse and include Lord of the Rings, Dinosaur studies, meat & seafood, economic liberty, individual freedom, minimized government, geopolitics, foreign policy, military defense, traveling, friendship-building, and the idea of owning a few pet true toads, as well as true toads (family Bufonidae) in general.
The other thing to know about me is that even though I enjoy my current entry-level job, I still have aspirations of eventually becoming a Master-degree computer science major with a Software Development job. And of producing and popularizing my own comic book saga (which I will have novels of as well) from 2017 to the year I pass away, whenever that is.
Lord of the Rings and other Middle-earth lore have been a passion of mine since 2002 when I was first shown Fellowship of the Ring on VHS tape (remember those?) and naturally, I thought it was endlessly amusing. Since then I have always been fascinated by the Easterlings, or Men of Rhun, as my favorite legion of Middle-earth. That is why I have a mod for Battle for Middle-earth II going on that focuses on them being their own faction and including Haradrim troops as part of them like how the game already has Rohan troops as part of Gondorians.
Religiously, I am a Non-religious atheist who espouses a secular morality that calls the Golden Rule (don't do stuff to others you don't want to happen to you) its sense of right and wrong, while stating that individuals who abide by the Golden Rule can and should pursue total self-fulfillment based on their individual preferences.
Politically, the only legit label of all the best-known for my views is libertarian; which is a freedom-focused thinker who supports individual freedom, constitutional federalism, and economic liberty. For examples; I support free trade, gay marriage, and right of self-defense. As an American, I oppose my country's federal taxing status quo and want the whole status quo erased, and I want We The People to restart from scratch with a simple 10% flat tax on nothing but land value. I believe laissez-faire, from which my opposition to the other 99% of kinds of taxes that I can think of comes from, is the best economic formula for creating prosperity. Also, I favor total freedom of expression and am the ultimate hardliner on Innocence Until Proven Guilty, because accusations are not proof.
None of this means I agree with most of my fellow American libertarians on foreign affairs and defense, though. That is to say, I do not allow the favorites I play with free trade and free migration far above warfare to make me a pacifist; i.e. I reject this Non-interventionism idea that is the mainstream among my fellow Liberty Movement people. Instead, I support a logistically invincible but tactically wise military, and an ethically self-interested foreign policy, both as opposed to Non-interventionism and as opposed to the Neo-con status quo.
Overall, my goal in life is to become a well-respected software engineer and to become known for my novels and comics, both based on my very own fictional reality. I also want to create a book publishing firm and I'll name it 'Stoddard Island Market', which is named for 'Stoddard Island', which is my fictional world's version of Ellis Island, and this fictional parallel gets its name from my Middle name, which is the maiden name of one of my Irish ancestors. And yes, I'm a little over half Irish.
As for what I am doing on Revora Forums, I am creating a mod for Battle for Middle-earth II Patch 1.09, which I am calling Final Years of the Third Age. Plus, I plan to get it hosted here, but first I need to figure out either how to afford 3ds Max or how to apply the tutorials that exist to the software I have.
And that is it! Thank you for reading this About Me page,
