FROM NOW ON, this blog, “The Naked Troubadour” will be reserved solely for my poetry, fictional writing, and music (or articles about poetry, writing, and music) and will function as my arts blog. In future, all my investigative or spiritual articles will be on a completely new blog, entitled “The Diakrisis Project” (link below). This is a revival of a hard-copy magazine I started in 1990 called “Diakrisis” (Greek for discernment, the ability to choose wisely), which morphed into an online service later in the 90s and continued until around 2011 when I went under the radar to go right back to the drawing-board regarding spiritual matters. I emerged from that, recharged and renewed, in 2017 and wrote the book, “Narrow Gate ~ Pathway Strait”. Now, continuing in that vein, “Diakrisis” is back as “The Diakrisis Project” blog, with around 300 items already there for you to read. As I will not be putting any investigative or spiritual articles on The Naked Troubadour in the future, if you are following me here and you want to continue to receive an email notice about my articles, please go to https://diakrisis-project.com where you will see an invitation to “follow” or “subscribe” by registering your email address to receive a notification each time something new is published. I look forward to hearing from you there. To whet your appetite, a new 8,000-word article, entitled “Transhumanism, Posthumans, and the Need for Authentic Leadership”, has just been placed at the top of “The Diakrisis Project” blog (with PDF version at the foot of the article, if you prefer that). I hope it will set the standard for what is to come. Blessings and best wishes from me!
OUTSIDE TODAY, here in the mountains, everything is in the clouds, low visibility with rain and freshingly cool for April. Inside the cabin, the cosy smell of smoke from the wood-burning stove, a stack of washing-up in the background, and in front of me a (so far) 15,000 word article (entitled “$cientistic Dictatorship: The Use of False $cience and Medicine to Control Society”) and an unfinished song being written on my laptop, a mug of ginger tea standing next to it. Just a personal “Hello!” from me, for once…

INTRODUCTION: The Cult of Trump and its Strange Bedfellows
There is going to be a lot of counselling needed soon in the Western world. I am referring to the followers of Donald Trump, who are going to be hugely disillusioned when they discover that in four years not even the tiniest part of the swamp was ever cleaned, that all the paedophiles in the world have not been arrested, that Amerika has not been made ‘great again’ (and never really was, actually), that QAnon must surely be an intelligence services psyop to test the gullibility of conservatives/rightists and as a likely pilot for future mind-control projects, that the “deep-state cabal” has remained completely intact (not even been dented), that all the wonderful acts of justice which had been promised to happen never took place, that Joe Biden has been inaugurated without a coup d’etat occurring, and that Trump has not got another four years, as they claimed he definitely would. Really, it has all been a spellbinding four years of hypnotic powermongering and cult-gathering.Read the rest of this entry »
For what it’s worth… here are my resolutions for 2021. And if I may add that all these resolutions are distinctly achievable. I never make stupid resolutions like “To climb Mount Everest” or “To marry the woman of my dreams” or “To parachute off the Empire State Building”, etc.Read the rest of this entry »

BELOW IS A 2009 MAILING that I sent out to my “news and views” email list (since discontinued) of some 1500 worldwide subscribers. I just rediscovered it on an old external hard drive and reckon it has as much relevance today as it did then. So I publish it here unchanged.

Having read my earlier article, “Abraham our Father: Jerusalem our Mother”, which overturned the false claim that modern Israel is a land promised by God for Jewish people today, a subscriber asked me recently if Israel therefore has any right to exist as a nation-state. It is high time for a little update on my thoughts about this matter, so this is what I want to address here. (I would respectfully ask that you look at all the weblinks too as they contain much explanatory and supporting information).
Previously, I have taken a kind of semi-neutral stance on this specific subject of a nation’s right to exist, and I haven’t really gone into it in very much detail. One of the reasons for this was because in my original lengthy article about Israel, I was providing specifically a theological examination of the whole aspect of Israel and did not want to allow any Read the rest of this entry »
I WAS GOING TO WRITE ANOTHER ARTICLE about the théâtre de l’absurde contrivance known by its portmanteau word, “Brexit”. But, being in a playful 🤪 geeky 🤓 frame of mind today, I created an image instead. Feel free to share…
