I am a Reconciliationist advancing Imaginist Politics.
As a Politist I originated
myself at Wesleyan University (Structural Liberalism); proceeded to formal education in British Canonical Literature, Poetic
Theory, Chinese Poetry (Indiana University, A.B., 1986); Music History, Music Technology, Music Literature (Indiana University,
M.Mus., 1996); and continued studying on independent initiative topics such as European History, Military Affairs, and Geo-Strategic
As a Goodman I have been brought through by Margaret, Pei Shen, Jimi Hendrix, and William
As a student I was mentored by John Bitterley,
Guy Foreman, Wayne Tarnow (La Porte Schools); and David Barton, Peter Lindenbaum, Lewis Rowell (Indiana University). Especial
gratitude is given to Myrtle Burns, who trained me in Americanism; Peter Marquis, who showed my spirit the basics of flying;
Glenn Linnemann, who pointed out the meaning of meaning; Robert Demaree, who taught the Significance of Music; and Irvine
Yucheng Lo, who gave me purpose in chun-tsu.
As a structured thinker I have modeled my schema on works by Northrop Frye,
Harold Bloom, Philip Bobbitt, and Wilfrid Mellers.
As a rockstar I have been guided by recordings of Frank Zappa, John Lennon,
Paul McCartney, and Laurie Anderson.
As a leader I have modeled myself on Princess Margaret, Richard Nixon, John
Milton, and Richard Lugar.
As a careerist I am still under the shadow of the Covering Cherub, but chagrin
and dispossession aside, I stand, still.
As a Christian my primary loyalty is to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
