About David M. Pittle

A pseudo-retired (I tried retirement, but got tired of it.) emotional health counselor, cognitive behavior therapist, sex therapist and spiritual coach, I am deeply involved in progressive/liberal political efforts. Conservative and right-wing political views cause mental, physical and emotional dysfunction and are contrary to the health of the earth. These ideas violate all the best ethics that humanity has struggled to achieve through thousands of years of progress, but it also holds back the future health and wealth of all peoples, especially the United States.

As a “card-carrying liberal”, I did not believe in an incarnate evil, like Satan or the Devil. However, whether by denying rights to GLBT people or declaring war on women and the middle-class, promoting the wealth of the wealthy while destroying the poor and, in fact, killing millions across the world with their policies of war and starvation, the conservatives and elites have finally convinced me that Evil is a reality and that they are the embodiment of it, the “Great Satan.” (Okay. Tongue partially in cheek, but . . .)

By reading my blog, you are self-identifying as one of a select group of great intelligence. Regular readers and subscribers are only between 20 and 30. So even if not economically, intellectually consider yourself one of the Elites. (If you don’t get the humor, I’m just wrong about you.)

Most of my posts here are not original. It is not my intent to rip-off other’s work and I make an effort always to credit the ideas and writing to the author and the original publisher (Or the source where I found the article) in the hope that my readers will be inspired to visit that original website and subscribe. Whether IPS, HuffPost, Alternet, Science Daily or another of the 15-18 feeds that I regularly read, there is simply more good–and bad–information available than ever before.
