Who Am I?

Or Better yet how do you view me?
"Fascism combats, and must combat, without respite or pity, not intelligence, but intellectualism—which is, as I have indicated, a sickness of the intellect" - Giovanni Gentile

”After visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”- John F. Kennedy

Last time I saw a thread like this, the answer was "home".

So...home?

"A truth is not necessary, because we negatively are not able to conceive the actual existence of the opposite thereof;but a truth is necessary when we positively are able to apprehend that the negation thereof includes an inevitable contradiction. It is not that that we can see how the opposite comes to be true, but it is that the opposite can not possibly be true." -R.L. Dabney

"Those then who know not wisdom and virtue, and are always busy with gluttony and sensuality, go down and up again as far as the mean; and in this region they move at random throughout life, but they never pass into the true upper world; thither they neither look, nor do they ever find their way, neither are they truly filled with true being, nor do they ever taste of pure and abiding pleasure." -Socrates

An idealist that hasen't realized what idealism is yet.

Replace " the USSR" with Idealism in this V. Putin quote: "Anyone who doesn't miss the USSR has no heart; anybody who wants it back has no brain."

Idealism is the belief that ideas have intrinsic power in and of themselves.

Stoic Guardian? What do I win?

How do I see you: as Stoic Guardian, I refer the honourable gentleman to the argument I gave some moments ago.

Think about it you are indeed you, it's deep like deep places that are very deep, they have great depth, their depth is almost unfathomable, at the bottom lies... er I don't know, candy and a blow job. Or perhaps a box of chocolates, it's deep like that, it's like a multiple layer candy fest, lots of chocolates, where the key is on top, that tells you what you are getting; Forrest Gump was a retard.

Perhaps you are trying to hint on something esoteric about this, but in truth it's just a simple somewhat vain question.

You can't blame my thread just because duality keeps posting movie posters(for some reason).

i don't really know you, but i appreciate your opinions regarding government and the state. you seem less knee-jerk than most in that regard.
If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
