Educated in the classics, philosophy, literature, theology, and sociology, I am a former professor of sociology. My writing on varied topics has appeared widely over many years. I write as a public intellectual for the general public, not as a specialist for a narrow readership. I believe a non-committal sociology is an impossibility and therefore see all my work as an effort to enhance human freedom through understanding.

The Shallow Deep-State Goes Deeper as It Moves Toward Martial Law The so-called "deep-state" super-wealthy forces are in the process of conducting class warfare hidden under the guise of COVID-19 and the justifiable outrage at the murder of George Floyd. It is a bi-partisan affair concealed behind the fraudulent left-right divide.

The Online Double-bind The creation of the Internet and its near monopolization of news and information has created an addictive double-bind that has resulted in social schizophrenia. It is a magic show where words and images appear and disappear in an instant. Has it made life better or worse? Who runs the show?

Death: A Simple Idea with A Powerful Punch The fear of death is the fundamental human fear that lies at the center of all societies and cultures. It has long been used by ruling elites to keep populations in their place. The fear of freedom is its twin. It is essential in understanding the reaction to the new coronavirus.

What Dr. Anthony Fauci Hopes to Never Hear Again: "I'm Shaking It, Boss" If Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn't want us to ever again shake hands, what else would he like to prohibit and what would he recommend in its place? Since he is a pioneer, we can expect to hear more if he wishes to lead the way, but he should be prepared for harsh criticism.

Neglected Medical Swine Studies That We Need Today It is laughable that the mainstream media ignore some of the most important medical studies that can shed light on our current social problems. This article reports on one of the most important of such scientific studies.

Bob Dylan's Midnight Message to JFK's Ghost Bob Dylan has gifted us with an extraordinary song/poem that tells the truth about the government's assassination of President Kennedy. Most mainstream media have done a hatchet job on his message and have maligned Dylan himself. Attention must be paid to this piercing work of art and truth.

The Coronavirus Is Not the Plague: The Plague Is US While the coronavirus rivets people's attention, causing panic,news of the plague that the U.S. inflicts upon the world disappears. Albert Camus warned us long ago in his novel, The Plague, that unless people resist the occupying forces that wish to cower us into acquiescence, our liberties will vanish and we will be plagued by our own hands.

Keep It Simple and Question: Propaganda, Technology, and Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fear and confusion are the most effective methods of social control. Throw in the electronic media with its ever-changing information flow, and you have the perfect recipe for creating regular social panics. A very close analysis of media and CDC "news" about the so-called regular flu should make one pause and ask what is going on with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) media coverage, and why.

Painting A True Christ: A review of Terrence Malick's film "A Hidden Life" Terrence Malik's new film, while overtly about the life of the Austrian conscientious objector, Franz Jagerstatter, who refused to take an oath to Hitler and fight in the German army, is, by analogy, about the viewer, asking us to come out of hiding and declare ourselves either for or against the endless immoral wars waged by the United States.

The United States of America's Doll House: A Vast Tapestry of Lies and Illusions There are many reasons why the essential reality of the U.S. national-security warfare state doesn't change. Long ago, Jim Garrison, the only person to bring a court case in the assassination of JFK, said that most Americans live in a doll's house of illusions and lies. This article explores that "reality."

Hovering in Cyberspace In the name of speed and convenience, we have embraced at our peril the religion of electronic technology without limits. It is very hard to admit, and even harder to change, but it has opened up a Pandora's box whose final evil has not yet emerged. Such hubris has an incalculable price.

The Musical Matilda Inspires Joyous Rebellion Inspiration to rebel against injustice and cruelty can come from many sources, including a play with a child star. Musical theater, when done well, has a particularly engaging way of drawing us into serious matters while entertaining us. Matilda is such a play, especially this amazing production.

The Searching Life and Enigmatic Death of Albert Camus Today, January 4, 2020, marks the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Albert Camus, the great French writer. In the United States today, where illiteracy has become the norm, he is barely known. But his life and work need to be remembered, for he embodied and expressed so many of the conflicts we suffer today. He foresaw the plague that would become us and the madness of the future that is now. The enigma of his death haunts.
