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 now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
Some doctors claim that all human deaths can be ascribed to “heart failure” – and yet its causes are as varied as our interactions with each other and the world around us.
If human emotions, drives and beliefs are naturally occurring aspects of the human condition – does that make murder “naturally occurring” as well?
“Naturally occurring” has been the ethical loophole through which government authorities and their cronies has squeezed environmental wrongdoing for decades.
The saltwater that is slowly creeping up the Mississippi River is just the latest disaster that our government labels as “naturally occurring” – Naturally occurring if your greed and arrogance count the results as less important than your profits.
Unceasing human driven climate change has morphed into an alibi where anything that happens in nature is “natural” – leaving no culprit for adjudication.
I won’t say the future is dark: because the disastrous outcome of our inaction is clearly illuminated in every choice we make.
There may not be time to fix things — but there’s plenty of time left to blame. “Fiddling while Rome burns” is a naturally occurring phenomenon.
