An Open Letter To Zach Bush About Impact Agriculture

January 6, 2020 Dear Dr. Bush, I spent some time last weekend watching the interview you did with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. of Children’s Health Defense.

How Will You Choose To Resist Digital Slavery? An Inquiry Into Spirit and Patriotism

A year ago, on my birthday, I spent hours waiting for a turn to speak at a meeting of Philadelphia City Council’s Poverty Committee.

There was much excitement among the Covid-Reset Dissenter community this past week as the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) against lockdowns circulated. For many, it was a relief to have epidemiologists from prestigious universities like Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford finally speaking out. People are exhausted after months of increasingly stringent measures, and any glimmer of hope […]

Blockchain Education, A Ticket To Digital Serfdom

What is blockchain? Those in power will say: Blockchain is a secure way for people to own and control their digital footprint, the data they create living through devices and wearable / implantable / ingestible technology in “smart” environments. In essence, it is a digital ledger that keeps track of EVERYTHING across a decentralized computer […]

What comes after the left / right paradigm, if anything?

I asked this question on social media today and got quite a few very thoughtful replies. One person asked me what led me to ask the question, and this was my response: I believe we’re teetering on the brink of worldwide techo-fascism.
