Christopher G. Moore Updates: 23 May 2014

Dear Readers,

What a week it has been. Monday started off with the military intervention also known as Martial Law declared under a 1914 statute. How that ‘intervention’ differs in kind and practice from a coup remains to be determined.

Around 5.00 p.m. on Thursday the military announced a take over. No ambiguity. We have a coup in Thailand.

Censorship has been imposed on TV, radio, print and social media.

As an introduction for this week’s essay, it is difficult to know what could have been a more graphic illustration of my subject: The Global Language of Bias: What do we use language for?

“The first obligation of a writer is to mess with people’s biases, making them question the reliability of the filters they use to construct reality. We are all in the reality construction business. But the building material comes from quite different sources. You can build a grand structure of reality without using a single brick from the warehouse of facts and evidence. If someone asks you whether you are biased, you might inquire which of the 93 Decision-making, belief, and behavioral biases, or did the person have in mind it one of the 27 social biases or possibly one of the 47 Memory errors and biases?” (Keep read here.)

At we are giving away copies of our 2014 novels to our devoted readers. If you are interested, please go to: or drop a note at:

Have a great week. Stay tuned to developments about the political situation in Thailand and give all of us your moral support. It is times as these that writers, artists, and journalists are put to the test of something very old and analogue, something which I hope never dies out: courage and integrity.
