Personal life and background

According to "Tablet", Dave is a "gay-married atheist" who grew up "in a fairly secular Jewish household on Long Island".[2] Dave fasts on Yom Kippur and identifies as "absolutely Jewish". He studied one semester at Ben Gurion University.[2] During an interview with Gad Saad, Dave said: "I smoked a lot of pot in college, but I do remember that the whole point of it was for an intellectual space, and I had plenty of stoned debates about the meaning of life with all my stoner friends, you know."[4] Dave's dad went to Cornell University.[5]

Political views

Dave is fond of talking about small government because he believes "a good government is one you don't have to think about too often."[6] He is "a classical liberal" with "a lot of libertarian leanings".[7] In mid-June of 2016, Dave was contemplating voting for the libertarian Gary Johnson.[2] Dave has said:

I believe the exact same things that I believed in 1988 when I first got into politics in 7th grade -- I've changed a little bit maybe on some economic stuff, I'm a little bit more libertarian maybe than I used to be, but I believe the exact [same things], it's not me that changed. People say, "Well, you left the left", [but the truth is] the left left me.[8]
