I have gotten a far amount of requests for information about my history and circumstance. I will reveal much more in the two upcoming books, but here's me in a nutshell: I do not want fame. I do not desire wealth or fame. I focus my mind on transcendence, not shame, with the goal of helping to heal societal wounds. I have a perspective that can be useful to the conversation. I am a tall white man that descends from many generations of, more often than not, "haves." I don't know of any stories of scoundrels, per se, but all of them would benefit from a shift in perspective. I can't make it harder for my Grandfather to go to college, but I can use my experience to communicate with them to create a better, fairer system going forward. My great grandfather was an honest judge in Chicago during prohibition, for whatever that's worth. His son married the beautiful daughter of a man that owned stockyards and they had my Father. Wasps for sure, but my Grandfather on my Father's side was one of the most honest people I have ever known. He wouldn't break a rule on purpose, BUT I DOUBT HE EVER HAD TO. My mother's father was in the Georgia State Legislature in the 70s and 80s as a Republican, when Democrats were the majority. I come from generations of judging, disapproving wasps, who misunderstood the nature of light because they faced the sun and saw no shadows(privilege). Both grandfathers died relatively young, and my Father committed suicide just before the expiration of a term life policy. It was more important that my step-mom be taken care of than to live into old age. His self-worth was decimated by bad investments, to one of which I introduced him. I was in my 20s, and I had not learned about the absolute futility of good ideas coupled with inexperienced, unfit stewards. The economy in Florida at that time certainly didn't help. The only reason I want money AT ALL is because creativity suffers when survival needs are in jeopardy, not at all because not being able to make a payment is WRONG or BAD. I want to. I perceive nearly everything universally. No "Woo" there. It's more of a shift in frame of reference than anything else. I will lay every bit of my soul on the table, holding nothing back. You will get radical openness, radical honesty, and global perspectives.
The first 40 years of my life were relatively unremarkable. The next 40 won't be. I'm 41, which puts me on the tail end of generation X.
A Forum for Revenge Attacks?
Nope. Not in the least. I have a lot to say about the state of our world and our country. I have a positive message and a burning desire to both serve, and lead. It will be entirely open and honest. I will always ask for and post responses, but if the answer itself is dishonest, I will illustrate why. There will be zero false framing or dishonest premises. At this point, I am judgment proof, but that will only protect me from those in power that choose to double down with dishonest lawsuits designed to use money as a weapon. Truth is a complete defense.
A host of a podcast that I listen to, Dave Rubin, said that he gets TONS of emails with people getting railroaded. Doing this impression of a bulldozer that thinks he's an author is my attempt to step into the gap. I will need help to reach across. Seriously... angels needed.
Proverbs 17:17. Shameless virtue signaling? You bet your ass.
I know! Wow! It IS fun!
