Author, columnist, and blogger with a long career in business management, management consulting and executive coaching. I've authored and published seven books: "You, Your Self and the 21st Century,"The Flowers Are Talking to Me," and "Faith Stirred Not Shaken," Christianity in America,"The Martian Prelude," Faith Stirred not Shaken, 2nd edition," "On Coaching with The Birkman Method." I try to keep this in mind when I write: Sometime back I was watching an old movie titled Biloxi Blues. At one point a young man named Epstein, warns the protagonist, a fledgling writer, played by a very young Matthew Broderick, "when you compromise your true opinions you commit yourself to mediocrity."

Helping or Liberating? When we help others in need, are we above the fray or are we playing a role in the system causing the problem? There's enough to go around. Someone is tipping the balance so it doesn't seem so.

How Smart Are We, Really? The Dunning-Kruger is even more of a revelation when you understand the entire principle. But what we really need is a little compassion and humility.

So Who's Correct? Do you like to argue? Have you ever changed anyone's mind my doing so? This urge goes back a long way. It's in our DNA. Let's hope it doesn't kill us all.

What's happening to us old white men? Are old white men the last group we can generalize about? If so, why? Some old white men have suffered more than anyone else at the hands of other old white men.

Liberals Unite! (Tee hee) What's happening to our overarching liberal purpose while we argue among ourselves about whose personal needs will be met first. If and when we ever get the power back, we can address them. Not in our current shattered state.

Why don't facts convince anyone anymore? Have you ever failed to convince another person even though you had the facts? Probably yes, right? There's a relatively simple explanation.

The Dangers of Free Speech Do we really want free speech and the expression of ideas that we don't like? What's to be gained and what's to be lost?

Truth is Lost in Our National Hallucination As we can readily see by the everyday mistruths from the president and the silence from his party, we can forget the truth. The only thing that counts is sustaining the hallucination that is the United States. For instance, "We were once great and we're going to make America Great Again." "We are a Christian nation and are blessed by God above all others."

Rules? We Don't Need No Stinking Rules! In corporations the higher you go the righter you are. Now we're seeing how this works in government as the GOP and the Trump administration create their daily pandemonium.

We've Stepped Over the Edge of Climate Change. If you think this is simply politics as usual, consider this. Our government is protecting the rights of the corporate entities that profit from this disaster rather than protecting us, our children and our grandchildren. At a deeper level, they are protecting their power to deny effective action to keep campaign funds flowing into their coffers.

We Need a Divorce Before We Destroy Ourselves. I find the preservation of the union to be less important than the preservation of a representative democracy.

We're Slowly Replacing Politicians With Something Scarier Neither party represents my interests anymore. And a new kind of creature now occupies the White House. A non-political enigma who "walks and acts like a duck but isn't."

Roger Ailes Didn't Invent Hate. He Was Just the Distributor? Roger Ailes died and we are the beneficiaries of the hate he distributed through his cable news organization. I had a big taste of it this week. It left we very worried for our society.
