What touches us ourself shall be last served. - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar III.i.8

Welcome,

This is Bellerophon5685's userpage on Wikipedia. I was formerlly known as dudeman5685. I came up with that name back when I was 16, relatively new to the internet and G. W. Bush was in his first term (hell, it might even have been Clinton). Now its pretty embarrassing putting it on job applications and such. I've used it for some many applications on wiki, imdb, that its become a "brand" now. However I have now changed it to the much less chimerical Bellerophon5685.

Anyway, my areas of activity on wikipedia are pretty broad. I take a particular interest in political and social movements usually thought of as radical or extremist, both on the right and the left ( as well as some that defy classification). I do this because I think, especially in to today's political atmosphere, the phenomenon of extremism deserves an unbiased, scientific examination. Too often it is used by opposition research and partisan out fits to exaggerate the radicalism of their opponents and the "threat" that the theocratic, socialist, communist, klan etc. movement are supposed to represent and how "close" they are to mainstream politicians.
