Circling Around Chaos

So you’ve been wronged, screwed, born upside-down, the world is a pale shade of what it should be, and your own internal development is stagnating and festering like sitting water. You’re not wrong about any of this. The denial of this suffering is impossible in a world where responsibility exists. Responsibility for oneself implies loss. […]

The Jobs Are Not Coming Back

Jobs are never coming back to the United States. The price of labor, with benefits and wages, is simply too high to compete with international sweatshops. Trump’s worship of business clashes directly with his protectionism. It is an incoherent worldview. Once Tesla’s self-driving cars become a reality, truck drivers will be the first out of […]

“Bougie Knows Best” – The Crisis of Democracy and Subversion, Trump and Brexit

We are nearly there. Every wide-eyed loon hack of a prophet from Malachi to […]

So the New York Writers Workshop Pitch Conference was phenomenal, Tim Tomlinson and Charles Salzberg have saved my query letter. Also felt a lot of empathy with my fellow writers – all the people in my group were real writers who deserve to succeed, and about three of the stories seemed really wild. Someone with […]
