Madness Chronicles

Madness  Chronicles

  • HERDING CATS. Is it impossible, or is it a lucrative profession in fantasy land?
  • SINS OF SEPARATION. The rural South suffers an historic psychosis built around race, and dictating a real separation from God.
  • BOBOSCOPY. An adventure story composed of only Bob Dylan song titles.
  • GAME OF THORNS. It’s a fantastical spin-off idea for the historic HBO show. The throne? Nobody wants the darned thing.
  • BALLS. Women marchers against Trump had their own pink pussy hats; the guys hope to incorporate their genitals into their own distinctive statement.
  • IRAQ AND RUIN. A Cut the Shit story. Here’s what really happened in a global debacle that fed war industry profits.
  • THE DECLINE OF PERFECT WORSHIP. There is a glorious relationship between Universal Father worship and the basic elements of our garden planet. Over the years, the worship experience has grown more separated from nature and God.
  • GOD IS BETTER THAN THIS. The fatal flaw in all religions is their tendency to drag our Universal Father down to an infantile level of understanding, and that includes denigrating other paths.
  • FIRE AX, ISSUE 1. September 2017. Swings and flying chips … Out of Bounds … Over the Top … Across the Line … Off the Wall … and Right On!

INTRODUCTION

 

You aren’t alone if you see a lot of greed, malice and self-serving bias in the world. It could all be troubling and depressing and hurt your personality.

 

Or we can take a philosophical approach and examine the Madness. We have faith in our eternal destiny, beyond this mortal life.

 

We can glean some ironic humor and spearhead a path from Acrimony to Altruism. We can respond to our human feet of clay with illuminating new insights that carry us to higher ground.

 

Here are some writings of recent months for your consideration:
