As my older brother lay dying of terminal cancer/COPD; he told his daughters: “I will not go gentle into that good night – I will fight,” and proceeded to live that statement day after day when doctors predicted he would be dead. If there can only be one end; then it matters all the more how you face it – so I’m returning to the battlefield of human worth with a renewed commitment. And . . . Oh, yes; I’ve been pulling my punches with the previous books – it’s time to go toe-to-toe with our evil times. This book is an in-your-face challenge to those people who refuse to show their face: And if they won’t come into the light – I’ll bring the light to them.
If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.

“We can share what we got of yours, 'cause we done shared all of mine” — Grateful Dead. “Jack Straw”
While much is made of sharing out Social Security and the benefits of a lifetime of toil – we are living in a time that is notably lacking in togetherness and empathy.
Once we pass the threshold of our giving; we reach a deserted plateau indifference – where even the cries of our COVID “die off” are sucked into non-existence.
Our sharing is a Millennial Judgement – the expiation of some kind of Doctrinal “Original Sin” – a giving of tribute: a recognition of superiority.
Maybe their sharing would reduce their perfection by some small amount – or acknowledgement of us would make them unclean.
They won’t even share the time to try to understand.
