I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

I know almost nothing about Albert Schweitzer.

I had never heard of him until about three minutes ago and still know very little. He received a 1952 Nobel peace prize in 1953 because in '52 they had 'withheld' the prize. Apart from being a concert organist and historian of the composer JS Bach, he established a hospital at Lambaréné in French Equatorial Africa in 1913, having changed his mind from originally visiting Africa as as religious missionary.
