An America that goes forward to the best elements of its history and foundational principles. A place that prizes individual liberty and strives to achieve fully the aspirational concepts embodied in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. A nation of equal and unlimited opportunity for all its people. A citizenry of individuals that prize and exercise free will while fully embracing personal responsibility.
To speak and write about things that matter, with clarity, consistency, open mindedness, intellectual honesty, critical thinking, compassion, and courage.
In writing Deceit Decline Dissolution, I sought to:
- Present my view of the political, cultural, and economic conditions in the country I love, the disastrous direction in which it is headed, and the probable consequences of its current road to self-destruction; and
- To make a clear and accurate presentation of liberal progressive woke ideology by the device of it being spoken by credible fictional characters.
In writing We Are That We Are, I sought to:
- Lay out the spiritual, intellectual, and scientific experience and knowledge that has taken me on a long journey from theistic religion in my youth, to a life that is exquisite and full of profound joy and sadness, but that does not include belief in a supernatural god.
- Share that experience and knowledge with others, particularly alcoholics who strive to recover in a program that they fear requires reliance on a supernatural power beyond their capacity for belief.
Whenever I write, I strive to create content that is clear, effective, and entertaining and above all else, so well written that a discriminating reader might stop from time to time and say, “this really is fine writing.”
