A rich collection of thoughts.

I’m in the culture-changing business. I achieve this (in small increments) via Leadership training which is based in the Word of God. Mounting an attack upon the status quo is certainly daunting work – especially when one factors in the instability of human beings. Yet we press onward – changing one person, one man/woman, one mind & one soul at a time.
This article helps explain why I do what it is I do.

Over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America.
