For reasons that will become clear very quickly when you read this blog I would like to maintain some level of privacy, at least for now. I'm an American, college educated, and I've spent many years traveling and working on the margins of our society.

This blog contains my analysis of our reality, our media, and the way that the second reflects and influences the first. I come at things from - what I hope is - a useful perspective, though I am open to suggestion and critique. I have no shame: I am a far-leftist, and see the problems plaguing our country not as disparate isolated incidents, but as expressions of a pattern, a pattern that is rotting away beneath our feet and under our fingers.


This blog updates every Monday at 9AM Eastern time, usually. I take every 6th week off, and may from time to time publish a day or two late, due to material events or the size of the piece.
