Maximum Candour to the point where it becomes unbearable, or a real pain in the ass, for some. To others a gladiator fighting the Hypocrites to save Lady Truth.
I have a degree in Political Science from a notable U.S. university, and some of the trouble spots in the world have been in the sphere of my academic interest. I like to write to politicians from time to time to offer pro bono advice, but nobody takes it since it's not a negotiable instrument. That's why the world is so screwed up, and I'm so tired of writing "Didn't I tell you?" letters.
History and languages have always been my favourite subjects.
I love to fly. I applied to the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War.
Since I've been giving away my intellectual properties I've had to make a living in the rat race, sometimes selling goods I wouldn't buy myself. As a God-loving agnostic I don't need a priest to confess. I'll write a book, or many books, when the rats let me.
I've been learning about law the same way I learned languages, plunge right into it and practise. I'm fascinated by our legal system, a medieval battleground where combatants cut with words and face the real judgmental God...
Henry VIII is my favourite monarch. I believe we owe our democracy to Oliver Cromwell.
I love our Queen, she reminds me of my mother. If it weren't for her I'd be a Republican.
My favourite book is the Constitution of the United States. I hope they stop burning it.
I haven't found much to admire in politicians but I loved Trudeau because I never caught him lying. I loved Reagan because he cared deeply about freedom and he was the right man at the right time.
I've always been politically incorrect, and I'm proud of it.
I won't bother to vote in the next election.
I'm generally on the side of the underdog, but I'm a cat person.
