    I am an activist, but only if the cause affects me personally. For example, I am an activist for adoption reform because I was adopted and know the downside of it.

    Rather Be Red Than Dead

    Now to say that you'd rather be dead than red, an argument I revisited in the form of the new Indiana Jones movie, is rather foolish. Whether you're talking about communism or socialism, if properly executed, either would be preferable to death. "Give me {equality} or give...
