Our world has many problems.

The biggest one is probably climate change.

But I don’t know what to do about that, beyond trying to reduce my carbon footprint. And you won’t get much about how to solve it from me.

The next biggest problem, for me, is tax evasion and tax avoidance.

I am no economist, but you will get a little about that from me, and hopefully you’ll find it edifying.

But one of our biggest problems, as I see it, is victim-blaming. Sure, it’s not as big as climate change. And it’s not as fixable as tax evasion and tax avoidance. But it’s a pretty big problem.

It’s universal: we all do it and we’ve been doing it since the dawn of humanity.

I am working on a book that explores why we blame victims and how we can do less of it. (I’m not so naive as to think we can end it.)

When you subscribe, you will get updates on my book in progress.

There will also be links to thought-provoking articles and podcasts, on much broad subjects.

And, because I cannot help myself, my music and movie reviews. They have nothing to do with my book. But you’ll get them anyway.
