About Me

CURRENT MISSION

satan! ups, I meant saitan....

ABOUT ME

I am not fond of self-descriptions but here's an attempt:

I try to be an open-minded, easy-going vegan anarchist. This implies for me a strong commitment to anarchist/autonomist principles such as equality and liberty. Further I am very interested in traveling and music, which is one of my great passions. I try to be an active member of my community and to enact positive change however small it may be. Finally, I study philosophy because I take great pleasure in intellectual pursuit.

PHILOSOPHY

radical equality

autonomy

scepticism towards authority, traditions, institutions

live and let live

don't hurry, be happy

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try my best!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I found out about couchsurfing in San Francisco, where I coincidentally met some couchsurfers, who introduced me to it.. Since then, I couchsurfed in California, and different places in Europe. I started hosting people when I moved to NZ, which is at least as exciting as couchsurfing. Through couchsurfing I met heaps of awesome people and I never had a bad experience. Interestingly I have not couchsurfed in NZ because everybody knows people all over the country here.

Interests

music - playing, listening, going to/playing/organizing shows

philosophy - especially political philosophy, political theory but not limited to these subtopics

politics - autonomy & grassroots political organizing, political acts in everyday life, political beauty

traveling

reading

conversations

veganism

and lots of other things which can also be summarized as "stuff"

Music, Movies & Books

Music:

mostly hardcore and emo these days I suppose, but I enjoy a vast variety of different music as long as I can find passion and authenticity in it.

Books:
brave new world, the old man and the sea, waiting for godot, catch 22, on the road, Stiller, and lots of non-fiction

Writers: A.A. Poe, T. Hobbes, F. Dostoevsky, A. Camus and German writers like Brecht, Frisch, Böll and Andersch

I am not too much into movies, but I've seen a few though.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I live life every day. - and it still manages to surprise me!

visited 18 states (8%)Create your own visited map of The World

Teach, Learn, Share

I probably teach quite a few things:
- philosophy/political theory
- German
- playing guitar (maybe?)

I think this is quite hard to say. But I believe you eventually learn something from every person you met in life.
