Christopher G. Moore Updates: 6 January 2017

Dear Readers,

Happy New Year!

May the fireflies of reason and hope light the path. May you follow the glow into the mist. May you continue to discuss with each other books, events, and ideas.

We all stumble forward in the darkness. We need to keep the conversation going, because that is the only way forward. As friends and citizens of the planet our destiny is to spread those ideas that give us hope and to challenge those that drag us into unending despair and conflict.

I offer one New Year resolution: treat your foes with respect and dignity.

Even when you feel that they disrespect you and rob you of your dignity.

Because those are the ones who are most in need of your message of respect and acknowledgement they have value, they have worth as human beings. It will be hardest resolution to keep. But we must try.
Justice and love are the two sides of a fair coin. Take away one and you lose the other.

A good way to start 2017 is with a classic Gary Larson Far Side cartoon.

My first blog for 2017 is titled Being Donald Trump. I explore the nature of our mental map-making the implications of that process in every corner of our life.

“Remember the film Being John Malkovich (1999) when Craig played by John Cusack enters a small door behind a filing cabinet and discovers he’s inside Malkovich’s head and can control his action. By playing with the internal maps used by Malkovich he can make him paranoid. Let’s substitute Trump for Malkovich and Putin for Trump. We go inside Trump’s head. Let’s call this movie: Being Donald Trump (2017) in pre-production.”

Be mindful of your mental constructs. They are unreliable handrails along a twisting, dark passage along the road of life.

Best,
Christopher

JumpersJumpers

Calvino investigates the death of a friend, a Canadian painter. The medical examiner finds the young man has ingested an exit drug, and the police verdict of suicide seems justified. But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>

The Age of Dis-ConsentThe Age of Dis-Consent

In the follow up to The Cultural Detective, Faking It in Bangkok, and Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, Moore pays caring and critical homage to his residence of choice by diagnosing some of Thailand’s discontents and offering subtle remedies for readers to tease out.

The essays range from political conflict to violence and criminal investigations in the digital age, to cultural upheavals, cognitive science and writing, including essays about Orwell, Kafka, and Henry Miller. More>>
