I'm Franklin,the scientific method and the potential it has to improve the world, brings me joy. I no longer have political leanings and am overwhelmingly disgusted with consumer culture as technology has made them irrelevant. I don't think societies problems have solutions in past ideologies, laws, regulation or religions but I have faith in you and your ability to change and grow. Why? Because you are a human being (presumably) and we are all capable of amazing things.
