I am only an ordinary Indonesian teenager that love Althistory on one side and K-pop on the other side. Simply like that.

From my father's story, I was belong to a very ancient Banjarese noble house that formed even prior the establishment the Sultanate of Banjar in the 17th century. That house, however, deposed by ruling house of Sultans of Banjar and then became a poor land-owner family for the next centuries. So, I had a little aristocratic element on my blood.

I very proud with my Banjarese heritage and identity. I prefer to speak with Banjarese language, instead of Indonesian on my daily life. However, I am totally an Indonesian nationalist that believing on irredentism of Greater Indonesia.

I am a convinced progressive liberal. I believe in free trade and laissez faire principle. Capitalism is unavoidable. They who have no strength to struggle for its own prosperity, will get exploited to its own grave. But, I am also a supporter of welfare state and social protection for the workers and the peasants as there is no nation in this world that can be developed on the top of carcasses of its own poors and weaks.

I am a Muslim by culture and name and a pantheist by faith. Although I belong to the Sunni Islam's Banjarese culture, I believe in Spinoza's God and Laozi's teaching of Tao. I adheres the Islamic culture as part of my Banjarese identity, but does not religiously observes the Islamic rituals. I rejects any discrimination and violence. For you that associated Islam with terrorism, this is my five cent for you: "Terrorism is like an insanity within the body of Islam and I have no sympathy over it. That is simply insane."

I was a non-Marxist Socialist and a revolutionary Nationalist during my early youth. I was admiring some revolutionary figures, such as Soekarno, Lenin, and even Mussolini. However, when I went into K-pop during my 16th, I increasingly transformed from a Revolutionary Socialist to a Liberal Socialist, until recently embracing Social Liberalism as my political view. Sutan Syahrir is now my political and ideological hero so far.

This is because the power of culture both makes ourselves happy and gives happiness to others.
