You are a wonderful writer. If you are ever in Santa Cruz, California I would highly recommend this bookstore to give your a book public reading and discussion . I would love to meet you.

Hi Michael,

Thanks! I love Santa Cruz, but don't know when I'll be back again. It's one of my favorite American cities.

Linh,

Out of curiosity I went to your Wikipedia page. I have read a great deal of your material and find your knowledge of history and politics touches far more of what the world is about than that narrow focus under the "Politics" category on Israel. What's written is presented in isolation and without context. It was meant to define you in most minds as an anti-American anti-Semite so you and your work can be dismissed without investigation. Someone lacking in conscience wrote it to reduce your economic opportunities. I saw it as a smear because your writing shows a deep curiosity and empathy in the people you meet. You are likable and your material is too thoughtful for it to be allowed to be defined in such a narrow manner on Wikipedia. If I had your talent I would insist that Wikipedia allow me to write my own thoughts. You might consider a future article asking if any of your readers or if the Unz people have a greater understanding of how Wikipedia works. I know Wikipedia gets edited by outsiders (sometimes humorously) If I knew how to honestly reflect your work I would do it for you. Unfortunately I'm ignorant on that subject.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Twain (I see similarity in how you both think)

You might want to think about it. Your work deserves should be reflected honestly on Wikipedia.

These thoughts above may be a bit personal so feel free to remove them if you wish.

It's just that propaganda used to dismiss someone worth reading really angers me. There is so much noise on the internet, it's like finding a nugget when someone good comes along.

Hi Michael,

As I explained briefly in my Palmyra piece, it's clear I'm on the radar, and that's why I'm no longer invited to read at universities, my books are not reviewed, so the distortion at Wikipedia is deliberate. A while back, Ron Unz even notified me and Philip Giraldi that even the FaceBook "likes" after our articles have been reduced or disappeared entirely, so they're that scrupulous about managing how people like me and Giraldi are perceived.

I can only worry about generating new articles.

The mind control and crackdown will get much worse.

Michael and Linh,

I totally agree with each of you.
