A Journey Begins with The First Step

Well, here we go.  My first paragraph.  My goal is to have about 10 pages done by mid-May.  After that I hopefully will get going to about 20-30 pages a month.  Stay tuned.  The evolving table of contents is located on the sidebar to the right (or click [HERE]).

Introduction - Who, What, When, Where, Why

My name is Collin Smith.  For years I’ve watched politics not so much as a professional analyst but more as a frustrated American wondering why our politicians rarely do the will of the average American.  For the last few years I’ve been compiling in my head a list of common reasons that allow our politicians to essentially ignore us.  Some of this I learned while receiving a Bachelor’s in Political Science in the early 90ies.  Most of it I’ve picked up either through observation or reading over the last 25 or so years.  I thought I would share my list with the world in the hopes that some would find it useful.  We cannot fix the problems with our political system (and yes I will make the case that it is very broken)  if we don’t properly diagnose those problems properly.  Libre Esoterica Volume One is meant to be a political diagnostic kit for future problem solvers by diving into how politics are played out in the real world as opposed to theory.

So this book, Libre Esoterica Volume One is my humble offering to the world to help it understand the problems with U.S. politics and thus hopefully help those in the future make needed corrections to swing the pendulum of power away from special interest back in favor of the American people.
