In general I believe that each individual must take responsibility for their own life as well as the larger communities they are part of. I'm an idealist, optimist, and realist - I really want to figure out a way all people can live together without strife, I think things can and will be better than they are, but I realize there are individuals out there who will find a way to profit or gain power at the expense of others.
