Brian Lynch is a retired social worker who worked in the areas of adult mental health and child protection for many years. His work brought him into direct contact with all the major social issues of the day and many of our basic social institutions such as law enforcement, schools, hospitals, welfare agencies and private social service providers on both a local and state levels.

This was a privileged vantage point for him to observe every level of human ecology, from the lives of individuals to the operations of government institutions. He was struck by the impact of state and federal policies on the lives of ordinary people, for better or worse. Political conflict and the clash of ideologies has real, observable and sometimes devastating consequences. He now writes and blogs on topics that relate to his social observations.

Micro-targeting: How Personal Data Stolen From Facebook Helped Elect Trump Micro-targeting is a military grade propaganda weapon. Imagine if you had psychosocial profiles on every adult and could: 1) accurately predict an individuals behavior, 2) identify any individual whose actions you want to sway, 3) Immerse each of them in a custom media universe designed to alter voting behaviors w/o their being aware of the manipulation. Did this happen in the 2016 election? Will it happen again in 2020?

Data Analysis Shows a Dem Centrist Candidate Loses Massive income growth by the wealthiest citizens and changing patterns of wealth accumulation at the top of the scale created a new, high education/high wealth class of elites on the political left. Their power and special interests realigned the priorities of the Democratic Party and shifted focus away from those on the lower end of the economic scale.

Coup d'e'tat - The Revolution Has Been Televised for Years The Republican Party has been replaced by a subversive cohort of politicians hostile to a pluralistic, democratic Republic in which they must share power with others who don't look, think, or worship like them. The bedrock of democracy is the consent of the minority to accept majority rule in exchange for personal liberty and protection under the law. This social contract is breaking down in America.

You, Me and This Space Between Us Evidence is accumulating that social media platforms increase our daily exposure to like-minded beliefs, a narrower band of information sources, and mono-cultural opinions. It surrounds us in a self-referential media cloud that discretely alters our perceptions and narrows are world views.

Creepy Netflix Discovery Highlights What's Wrong with Social Media Today The artificial segmentation of the population is happening everywhere, across all social media platforms. Into how many different AI generated segments are we being corralled? To what extent is our narrowing worldview being remolded and reinforced by computer systems designed to maximize profits at the expense of our shared humanity. How long before we don't recognize a unifying American culture anymore?

To Impeach or Not to Impeach - A Soliloquy To impeach, or not to impeach: That is the question. What might William Shakespeare have Hamlet say on this pressing question? I asked him and this is what I heard.

Campaign Finance Laws Discriminates Against Worker and Voters Campaign finance laws set one limit political donations by individual voters but other, higher limits for businesses and PACs. If a business has the same free speech rights as a person, why is it allowed to have a higher campaign donation limit?

Why Russia Hacked Voter Registration Databases - Micro-targeted Messaging Into the" big data" world of our modern political campaigns comes a whole set of newly developed propaganda technologies that can exploit a campaigns massive knowledge base. Explaining how just one of these new, information technology weapons work, one called micro-targeting, we can see how the dots may be connected in the Russia election scandal now unfolding.

Front Lines in the Cyber-War Against America If Republicans in Congress seem dismissive of claims that Russia attacked our elections it may be because Americans on the far right have a starkly different world view created by right-wing media organizations. They believe we are under attack and democracy is at risk, but the enemy is in the Middle East and in our own government.

Propaganda in the Digital Age - Mind Control on a Massive Scale During the presidential election a new generation of military-grade propaganda techniques, the most powerful ever developed, was unleashed in America. The internet and our personal digital profiles were "weaponized" against us and we didn't even know it. It's called Cognitive Warfare, and we are all potential victims.

America at the Crossroads of Crisis We seem to be at a crossroads. We can choose the Trump path to social dissolution and toss as many "others" off the life boat where we find ourselves, we can ignore that we've be put in the lifeboat because of the wealthy corporate capitalists (until we sink), or we can link arms to forge a new path that restores democracy and a civil economy for everyone. The only real option is to come together.

Why Bernie Sanders Must Fight for a Contested Convention Given the state of the two parties, a Sanders win would be a foregone conclusion. All the polls say as much, yet this is message isn't seeping into the consciousness of the establishment. The Democratic Party is eager to put Hillary's negatives up against Trump's negatives any day, in yet another hold-your-nose-and-vote election.

A Silent Rage Approaches The "establishment" in America, and elsewhere around the globe, is this nexus between business, politics and the media that form the self-interested ruling class. They are the wealthy and all their loyal minions. We have seen this before, and it has never ended well. But the stakes are much higher today and radical reform is out only viable option.

Panama Papers Scandal Parses the Difference Between Bernie and Hillary The Panama Papers Scandal was foretold by one of the Democratic presidential candidates who opposed the Panama free trade deal and created in part by the other who supported it. It's another example of who has better judgement.

Bernie, DNC and Hillary Connections to Data Company Is there any bias or favor revealed in the handling of the Sanders campaign data breach? Democratic politics is also a competetive insider's game. The DNC must be fair and unbias if our democracy is to be properly preserved. Special interest corruption or establishment favoritism within either political party is a direct threat to our American democracy. The will of primary voters is as sacrosanct.

Primary Drug Abuse Prevention - An Unappreciated Necessity Primary prevention is all the things we can do to forestall or eliminate exposure to addictive substances. It is our best hope for solving America's drug problems. But primary prevention is under appreciated and under-funded, especially when a community comes to realize there is a crisis. Once the problem become an epidemic, attention usually focuses on law-enforcement interdiction of drugs and treatment, not prevention.

Black Families, Structural Racism and a Decision to Raise Social Problems to a Public Issue - Part 1 In June of 1965, on the eve of the Civil Rights Act, an unknown civil servant drafted a report on his assessment that structural white racism was destroying black families and the impact of this was underestimated by the federal government. His name was Daniel Patrick Moynihan and his ideas promoted then-President Johnson to express them in a speech. But the message got turned upside down and an opportunity was lost.

Debunking the Myth That It's Your Fault You're Poor Starting around 1973 the disparity between hourly worker compensation and the hourly GDP that workers generate became uncoupled and the gap between wealth and wages have grown larger every day since. A look at the data over the last 70 years reveals that this decoupling was rapid, happening of less than a decade, and persistent, ruling out all but a premeditated effort to change the structure of worker compensation.
