I resumed my career in 2003, and have been very busy ever since. I also briefly came out of retirement on the free energy activism front. I was originally planning on spending my free time in 2006 and 2007 re-editing my site, adding some new material, and rewriting some essays. However, I was persuaded to set that task aside for a few years, and perhaps forever. I have not stopped writing and editing altogether, and this page is designed to make it easy for my readers to find the significant changes since 2004.
This was relatively a quiet year, writing-wise.
In 2009, I plan to become more active, and have been researching and working on my most ambitious essay since I first finished my site in 2002. It will be on the political-economic dynamics of free energy. After I publish it in 2009, I will attempt to initiate a high-level, published conversation on the issue.
I have kept busy on the reading front. While there have been many notable efforts on dissecting the abysmal state of the U.S. media and its complicity regarding the invasion of Iraq, it is difficult to single one out. Many are Internet-based efforts, but War Made Easy by Norman Solomon is a good antidote to the propaganda barrage in book form.
Two recent books are particularly germane to my site, and I have incorporated their findings into my site. In 1998, when I first read an article by Joel Griffiths and Christopher Bryson on the Manhattan Project’s connection to America’s fluoridation effort, I hoped they would publish a book-length treatment of the issue. I was rewarded in 2004 by Bryson’s magnum opus, The Fluoride Deception, whose findings have been sprinkled throughout my fluoride essay.
The second pertinent book is making history, and is already being compared to Smedley Butler’s War is a Racket. As with Ralph McGehee, John Perkins was a recruiting error. Perkins was recruited into a professional group that literally call themselves “economic hit men.” As with McGehee, Perkins’ conscience eventually overcame him and he spoke out. His Confessions of an Economic Hit Man should be required reading for everybody who kneels at the capitalist altar. It validated from the inside many things that I have written about on my site.
I may put my entire site in one easy downloadable file one day. I may engage in public dialogue on the free energy conundrum and related issues, if I can find the right audience and forum.
I sympathize with readers of my work. It is not easy reading, and can hit the reader like a sledgehammer. In 2005 performed a slight re-edit of my introductory essay, and was dazed when I finished. I think my work is best digested in small doses, even for me.
