Over the past few years I have been involved within the Independent Filianic / De’anic religion. However that fact has never ended my long term participation within certain forms of alternative politics.

This disenchantment has come after a period of four years in which I made a last effort in my life to help build a Socialist movement in this nation via my work to help revive the Social Democrats USA one of the oldest Socialist organizations within this nation. That work had produced little evidence of success…
