Born to Hippie parents in the 1960s, I was raised to challenge convention and authority
early – and still have a problem with so much of it. A lot of liberals are quite polite
in their criticisms of society and its individuals. I’m not one of them. I’m more of
a Machiavellian Liberal, which means I lock horns with these rigid, conservative,
authoritarian personality types and their ideologies attempting to keep the world locked
down in unchanging, conformist, consumer status quo. I do it in words.
I’m currently working on a sequel to my 2006 Surrealist novel Face of the Screaming
Werewolf, and I’m totally enjoying this opportunity to freely express myself here at the
Citizen Journalist Exchange. In the Sixties, a radical challenge was popularly posed:
“Who are you to think that you can change the world?” I hope we know by now.
