Who am I?

I’m an undergraduate studying philosophy, with opinions on many things. If you like my essays, please share them! It helps more people find them.

What’s this about?

Utilitarianism, effective altruism, our mistreatment of animals, foreign policy, and everything else I feel like talking about. My blog has many high-profile endorsements:



“Better even than Michael Huemer’s books.”


“The best of all possible blogs.”


“Really a beautiful thing like frankly not a lot of other things and people—many people—are saying great things about it, and I don’t get credit for it and that’s okay, I never do.”


“Carrying false endorsements which, for legal reasons, must be stated.”

—Some random lawyer.
