Subbed!

I am a Marxist. Not the Sanders/Sweden/state bureacracy kind, but the workers' democratic control over the means of production kind.

I often use the debates I get into on these forums to demonstrate logical fallacies to to my students and debate teams I coach. Beware - your arguments are under scrutiny of adolescents and teenagers!

I will need to take specific steps to make sure this rig stays quiet. As days go, I will reveal more information, but I've left a hint in the OP (actually two hints).
