With a BA in Philosophy and some studies in Theology, I consider myself a thinker. I always strive to judge ideas, arguments, and proposals on their merits, never on their origin. I write about topics that are important to me and, at the same time, affect the lives of millions of people both in the US and in Europe. I am also a geostrategy buff, interested in all things military. I am lucky enough to read news in four languages, which helps me get a broader understanding of the world.
