INTERVIEW WITH THE DIVOC

JOURNAL YEAR 1 /7 It wasn’t fun, exactly, but I wouldn’t have missed it. A bad trip is still a trip; and quite a trip at that.  My friend Jim worries about me doing this. Jim makes fine guitars; I call him the Just Artisan; he’s always saying ‘I’m just an artisan, but…’ before coming out […]

The ROADMAP

On 14th October 2020 an email was sent to a publication called The Canadian Report from an anonymous source purporting to be a member of the Strategic Planning Committee of the Liberal Party of Canada (under the Prime Minister’s Office), tasked with creating a plan to achieve 100% compliance with the plan outlined in the […]
