22. Hey, cool handle
My nick was actually given to me by my old poli sci comparitive systems prof who first called me an idealist -- the class maoist -- after a week or two of that, I responded by saying that all sustainable systems mirrored the state motto of Missouri, 'let the welfare of the people be the supreme law' and every thing else was a revolution waiting for a moment to happen.

I said 'social democracy is the only realpolitik', and that is what he called me on and off the rest of the semester.
