    Dec 8, 2017 | OpEdNews

    Duluth, Minnesota December 8, 2017: The allegations of sexual misconduct made against Bill Clinton, himself a sex addict who admired the sex addict President John F. Kennedy, strike me as far more serious than the allegations of sexual misconduct made against the celebrity playboy Donald Trump. But I recognize that certain people may not agree with me about this estimate of the allegations made against each man.

    Nov 4, 2017 | OpEdNews

    Duluth, Minnesota November 4, 2017: Pete Walker's 370-page self-help book Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving is designed to be accessible in the tradition of Alice Miller's books and John Bradshaw's books on childhood traumatization. I found Pete Walker's 2013 book massively informative and admirably clear, and I suspect that many OEN readers would also find it informative.

    Aug 5, 2017 | OpEdNews

    Mar 24, 2017 | OpEdNews

    Duluth, Minnesota March 24, 2017: With so-called President Trump now deliberately shaking up American culture in ways not endorsed by second-wave feminist zealots, the openly lesbian atheist Camille Paglia of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia has now published a wide range of her previously published polemics in her hefty new 340-page book Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism to help him shake up American culture under the influence of second-wave feminist zealotry. In my estimate, Camille Paglia, unlike Trump, has set forth a coherent framework of thought, as I hope to delineate in the present review essay.
