Since reading Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' about age 15, I've - grudgingly - come to evolve a deep-held interest of politics to a global issue needing necessary action. This does not, as even the most fervent advocates for Mother Earth (as well as the more romantic, eco-gynephilic ones) often stress, involve greenhouse gasses only. The question of human survival, the foremost not only of our time but of our existence, requires a holistic progress based on academic discipline and involving economic, social as well as ecological dimensions, also focusing on groundwater preservation and radical agricultural reform, as well as preservation of species - particularly those in symbiotic existence with our own but not afforded the proper care or attention as such.
I'm a twenty-odd legal student, with BA:s in political science and the history of ideas and science from the National Defence College (Stockholm) and Umeå, respectively. I've held a long interest in politics, especially international politics, human rights and the development (and maintenance, a key word) of the Enlightenment gains and values. Private interests, can they be separated, include writing, traveling and arguing about topics of lesser importance, preferably in public.
