Studying the glorious work of those who want to do your thinking for you
No, I'm not currently a professor -- it's just a catchy title. I am an American male baby boomer raised in the rural Deep South. Subsequently, I have lived in major cities elsewhere in the country, and have spent a great deal of time traveling all over the U.S. and in Europe. My fascination with propaganda, myths and the cult mentality stems from several things, such as: being raised in a strict fundamentalist environment; an academic background in literature; a career in theatre, film and journalism including several years as a film critic; a close encounter with the Moonie cult as a young man in San Francisco. I blog anonymously because (a) I want to keep this endeavor separate from my current career, and (b) I don't want this blog to be about me, but about what I'm discussing.
