My “Moth” Podcast Pitch

Written:

I am a first-generation immigrant who legally came to this country at 10 years of age and was promptly naturalized through the efforts of my father. I have a deep appreciation for this country as a land of immigrants, and I have an even deeper appreciation for what I understand to be the “American Experiment” in history. This experiment is our national calling to champion what I would term “practical democracy and the rule of law” in our world today. This national mission is absolutely special and sacred for all of humankind and the fate of our “better world” is resting squarely on America’s back. My intention in life, through my educational preparation afforded through the American student loan program, is to become a central fighter in this great cause.

In this age of our American experience where Trump represents a rise of some of our less noble sentiments as a nation, I am here to take a stand as an immigrant and true American. I will make it my life’s mission to remind America of its special significance as a nation of plurality and to do my best to initiate a movement of populist unity through my social justice vision at http://www.newamericanspring.org…

Recorded:

Hey I’m a first generation immigrant who desperately feels that America is beginning to forget its identity as a nation of immigrants.

When I was in school I learned about “The American Experiment.” I learned about the ideals under which our nation was founded and I was introduced to our great and foundational thinkers like Thomas Jefferson, to special admirers of our new country like Alexis de Tocqueville, and to wonderful poets like Emma Lazarus who wrote the famous lines beginning with “Give me your tired, your poor…”

One of the special things about America which I am so grateful for is its sheer generosity. While I was, by social inheritance, just another one of these tired, these poor, these huddled masses who yearning to breathe free, this did not prevent my acquiring a very good education. Through our student loan program, I was able to gain my Bachelors in the History of Modern Philosophy, a higher liberal arts Master’s degree and most recently, my Masters Certificate in nonprofit leadership. I pursued these degrees because I simply wanted to blossom, to become myself with no specific plans for what will become of me once I attained my identity.

After gaining this education I embarked on a rambling and soul searching lifestyle. With the foundation of my liberal education, I simply wanted to explore my America and my fellow Americans, as they were, outside of academia. I wanted to see the real world. So I became a big-rig truck driver, going about my country and interviewing my fellow Americans in imitation of my favorite philosopher, Socrates, who interviewed his fellow, ancient Athenians.

What came out of this life experience of mine was my book “The Socratic Trucker,” and my final realization of my true calling in life. In these years of Trump, many of my fellow Americans are forgetting our nation’s special calling to showcase to all the world that a rule of the common people is not just a futile idea which is destined for shame and failure on the national stage. Our nation is meant to prove the glory of the common man and in so doing the true glory of humanity.

As an immigrant and someone of the most common background who benefited from America’s mission, I am here to remind my country of that mission and to help advance our final triumph as a nation through my New American Spring movement for a revitalized people.

This is my story.

Why Fear Putin?

How is it possible that America is just waking up to the weakness of its citizens to message manipulation? Have we not allowed ourselves, most shamefully, to be steered by our long tradition of political ads and money politics? This history of ours is particularly ignoble because, supposedly, unlike all the other nations upon our globe, America most directly claims to be a nation of, by and for the people.

The original aim of our forefathers for a rule of the people, having its origin in the historically miraculous spirit of the Magna Carta, should have resulted in a nation whose direction has always been from the bottom up. Yet to the contrary, the American people have passively allowed forces, interests, and messages originating from top-down entities, to continually play various alluring and seductive tunes for them while they sway their votes in the direction of these pied pipers. Should we therefore be surprised that, given the opportunity, foreign enemies like Vladimir Putin might identify our embarrassing weakness and utilize whatever means they find at their disposal to laugh at and mock our “democracy” in sowing dissent? Have we not allowed our “bright republic,” from the start, to become fundamentally tainted?

Wake up, America! It is not too late to revive, or maybe for the first time awake, to our populist sovereignty over our City on a Hill. We must make the effort of embracing one another in our various diversities so as to keep our populism pure, uniting under the rule of law and democratic spirit, taking back the reigns of our great nation from our grassroots. I can say this because, as an ordinary American, I am committed to fighting this good fight at newamericanspring.org, for my nation and for the world which still looks upon its light.

Revolution of Vision, Evolution of world…

 

The Kingsmen Movie Series– Story Idea

Would you believe that the Kingsmen movie producers are considering MY, an ordinary movie fan’s, IDEA!?

 

I noticed that the Kingsmen movie series seems to be developing an identifiable theme– ultra-powerful individuals and or organizations seeking to decrease the human population in a sudden and drastic way. This theme is familiar to people who are aware of the global overpopulation debate.

 

Solving our problems by drastically decreasing the world’s population is, of course, a clearly evil approach. What if the next Kingmen series did something mind-blowingly creative by having the powerful Kingsmen network defend the life and work of an ordinary, unknown man, the titanic opposition to whose work is unknown even to that man? The Kingsmen would defend the life and work of said man because although he is a most ordinary person in the global sea of humanity today, he is actually the next great human visionary who is developing the kernel of a global social movement which will usher humanity into a noble and bright future, one which is grass-roots-based rather than top-down-directed. Said man is also being targeted by ultra powerful forces aimed at preserving their top-down domination by holding the world back from this evolution (perhaps via a back-from-the-future effort), and the Kingsmen secret service is countering their threat to this man’s life and work via great action and battle scenes which are just out of view of the visionary himself. He must be kept in the dark about his true significance until his work has reached a launching moment when its message begins to catch on virally, at which time the Kingsmen shall openly join forces with the movement, as the peoples’ defenders.

 

This man and this movement: Roger Farinha and New American Spring!

 

Worth a try! lol…
