A New System is Coming. It's Inevitable.

I have a vision for a better tomorrow, and see the possibility that it is nearer than most of us imagine. People are awakening to their connection to others and getting many opportunities to feel the pain of the less fortunate in order to strengthen that bond.

Should Grandma Smoke Pot?

Today I make my stand. I'm not an activist, but there's an issue on a ballot near you that needs your attention. It's about the legalization of marijuana, especially for medicinal purposes.

As a long-standing advocate for the responsible and unrestrained exercise of free will, I could rail against laws that restrict those freedoms. Laws prohibiting pot are among those. But I won't.

Sovereignty of the Self

Thomas JeffersonThomas Jefferson was a guy who also talked about individual self-determination as the key to creating a better world.

He espoused the idea all men were endowed by God with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Too bad he left slaves off that list. He didn't say much about women, either. I guess he wanted to leave some work for the rest of us.

Nevertheless, it is this idea of personal sovereignty that is at work in each of our lives, and its interaction with that of others determines how our relationships unfold and our common affairs are conducted.

One of the great challenges ahead for humanity is the battle between free will and personal sovereignty subordinated to the will of an all-powerful state, manipulated by those with a thirst for money, power or influence.

A Heart-Warming Story of Overcoming Adversity

Armageddon's Coming -- Will You Sit This One Out?

A great war is brewing, and there will be hell to pay if we keep going on the way we are.

There, I said it. You don't know how long I've avoided hitting that nail on the head. Not that I didn't know it was there. Just that I didn't want to sound like an alarmist, or look like the guy who walks the streets with a sign board that shouts, "Judgment Day is here!"

I've always tried to move toward a higher vision, rather than away from pain. And that's the way I practiced law and went about sharing a new foundation on which to build better lives and a better world.

But I've come to the conclusion most don't want to see those things, much less understand the meaning of life or the challenges life brings. So I guess it's time for me to speak their language.

We are in a war for the soul of humanity. Unfortunately, most only see things in their own self-interest without knowing what that interest really is. Or why it is there.
