This site is dedicated to keeping an eye on the developing Trump regime and on ways we can use this as an opportunity to reinvent our democracy and reaffirm our reputation as a wise people.
I once had a calling in my earlier age to serve actively in the U.S. armed forces around the globe; but that faded over 20 years into a haze of misguided ventures created by an increasingly ideological national governing structure. Today, at age 53, a calling has again risen but this time I must answer it from the outside rather than from the inside. I must embark on this journey because I am convinced that this regime is dedicated to reconstructing America into an oligarchic kleptocracy. I am further convinced that the problems we face are not just political or cultural, they are even more fundamentally biological. I will explain and explore all these perspectives and more in this blog while attempting to learn and expand my understanding through interactions with you. I hope we will eventually attract all sides into a coherent and useful dialogue.
Finally, this is the most serious venture of my life – a venture worth giving one’s last full measure of devotion if required. I for one, don’t want to wake up one day realizing that I had been the frog that failed to see the deceivingly slowly rising temperatures before it was too late. We will certainly all know that time has come if this post is taken down by the regime and if it is; my first and lasting message will always be to organize non conventionally and fight on as did our forefathers and mothers. For now, we must simply and persistently put one foot in front of the other to forge a pathway of resistance and renewal through these conversations and subsequently inspired actions. May we all be guided by our collective wisdom. Thanks to you, whoever you are, for your participation.
