The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells My rating: 5 of 5 stars Not new in terms of primary predictions but just a hell of a lot closer than 20-25 years ago. And it’s scary as shit. Naturally the US is just one of a handful of countries that not only doesn’t give …

Utopia for Realists: How We Can Build the Ideal World by Rutger Bregman My rating: 1 of 5 stars Yeah. Utopia for anything, any reason or topic always sounds good.

A Review of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook”

Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook by Mark Bray My rating: 5 of 5 stars These days? An absolutely essential book. Necessary, especially in 2020 America. Because most Americans haven't been exposed to historical fascism the way Europeans have, most don't have an accurate, complete or in some cases any understanding at all about this very dangerous …

A Look Back At My 2016 Article, “Republicans Can’t Be Christians — Sorry!”

President Donald Trump with one of his most ardent evangelical supporters, the sellout Franklin Graham [I published this earlier today on Medium. It's literally the same thing, but better proofed and edited, so it's perhaps 1% better if grammatical mistakes just kill you like they do some. If that's the case, you may wish to …

Book Review: A Foreign Policy for the Left

A Foreign Policy for the Left by Michael Walzer My rating: 1 of 5 stars Weak. I've been a progressive/"liberal" for most of my adult life but over the past five years have become really disgusted with the group. While I cannot stand (even believe) where the far right has gone, A) the left could …

Leaving LinkedIn. Hopefully Some New & Diverse Blog Posts Here…

I am coming to the conclusion I may finally terminate my LinkedIn account after 15 years there. There are a number of reasons and it both pains and saddens me, but I see no viable alternative. I've worked hard over 15 years to build the largest very high-quality network on the platform, and by most …
