I’m Doug from the inside out, and these books are a part, but just a part, of me.
I’m very independent in thought and action, so a conventional appearance is restful, protective, and a little amusing.
I like and respect people with very different views from my own.
The Rural Social Justice thread in these books is the armature that gives structure to pieces intended to provoke, inspire and feed the reader’s thinking and imagination.
Few people will read them; but it only takes one to make all the difference.
I’m not passing a torch — I’m just holding the door.

Where is the mercy in a “mercy killing” when you have created the situation that lead inevitably to that choice? • Where is the “love” in deciding who is worthy of receiving it? • Today’s doctrine releases us from the need to make the unselfish choices and take the compassionate actions that traditionally defined “humanity”: It only requires that we conform. • Human beings are parsed into different containers to meet different ends: one gender here; one gender there; one race for this perception; one race for that — all as instructed by the revealed doctrine of an unrevealed elite. • Where is the love? You might as well ask the chicks going to their disposal. It’s all about the using; love doesn’t make those kinds of choices.
