Who is she?

Just another voice in the wilderness. No one with any political power or influence or ties to organizations with much of any either. Not earning a dime for expressing my opinions, and I seriously doubt anyone would be willing to pay me. ha

A few random blog posts:

Public discourse and political pressures in our most-modern era

So you’re upset with third party voters…

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts …

If interested, more of my views and thoughts are shared in videos stored in this playlist.

Born and partly raised in the (U.S.) Deep South before being transplanted to the Midwest, I am embarking on my fourth decade of trying to make sense out of living with all of you. haha

Over the last decade or so I’ve done what I could to explore topics relating to corporatism, foreign and domestic policies, agriculture (past and present), and the role of psychiatry and social engineering strategies (including marketing and pornography, which I had previously been tracking), plus whatever else happened my way. Prior to starting the ball rolling on this information hunt I had identified since teenagehood as being a libertarian-leaning Independent in terms of my political views, and I remain largely unaffiliated with any political parties or popular ideologies.

Getting wrapped up in a movement holds little interest for me after having tried my hand at feminism in my late teens and early-to-mid 20s.

My personal heroes include (in no particular order) farmer Joel Salatin, Eric Hoffer, Dr. Thomas Sowell, Dr. Walter E. Williams, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Johnny Cash, Joe Bageant, Chris Hedges, Joseph Campbell, Dr. James Hollis, Dr. Carl G. Jung, Dr. Jordan Peterson, Michael Pollan, Ralph Nader, Colin Flaherty, Harlan Ellison, and George Carlin. (Updating as others come to mind.)

Some information I’ve collected along the way is slowly being added to this blog (or was . . . not been doing much with this blog beyond treating it like a journal lately), taking time to listen to views expressed by others on the youtube, that being what prompted this decision to raise my voice and add my presence to the conversations taking place, for whatever it’s worth.

Not feeling like hurrying much these days, just enjoying reclusive tranquility in my downtime. Taking time to watch the wheels go ’round and ’round. Feels like a necessary phase.

    After watching what you have selected to post here, on a page I might safely infer is somewhat more personally representative of you, I feel compelled to ask you this rather -fantastical- hypothetical: If, by some strange anomaly in the collective consciousness, the majority and the powerful suddenly became aware of you and your viewpoints, and managed to assert them onto everyone else as they inevitably do… and for whatever strange reason it made things even worse,

    Would you hold yourself responsible for it? Would you still feel worthy of the respect of others? Would you still have love for yourself?

      I have no idea what you intend with these questions. My goal is never to have my views embraced by all others. They are simply mine and were forged throughout my life, for better or worse. Take my views expressed only for what they’re worth — one individual’s expression. Forever growing and changing and my views do too and will continue to over time.
