Help Me... Make Sense Out of This
Let's please take a review of both those things which are morally right and wrong, and also those that are advantageous to our economy and to our nation. Let us separate those things which are personal and those things which are attached to larger truths and larger outcomes.
I am personally not of much power or strength... certainly not of much wealth. I am an intelligent political prisoner with certain intelligence assets: both President Obama and President Trump saw fit to utilize me.
I am currently under political fire because I wrote essays advocating for profound reform of the American medical system and for medical coverage to be extended to every citizen as a human right. I explained how this would be accomplished in my essay 'On American Medicine.' I laid out intellectual sense in plain English. Unlike many of my rivals, this has always been my position.
Secondly, I wrote an essay arguing that attempting to de-nuclearize the Korean penninsula through nuclear warfare doesn't make sense.... and could do great harm to our economy, our people, our national reputation etc.. Nobody disagrees with this. The current thinking is to bluff the North Koreans into giving up their nuclear missiles... and it's simply not feasible. This tricky strategy could lead to an actual nuclear war... something I already put myself through hell once striving to prevent.
The President is, fittingly, surrounded by generals and businessmen etc., conservatives of his own party. He has a brave Jacksonian streak and likes to talk to the public, to critics, and to anyone who says something in a way that makes sense.
