First and foremost, I am not an academically accredited anthropologist, sociologist, philosopher, or historian. No formal training informs the posts in this blog; just observations of the society I live in. Some of those observations come from academic and nonacademic resources, others from dialogue between peers, and a good portion of it from just watching the world around me with a certain mindset. I do not intend readers to see the posts as Absolute Truths. The posts will be biased, they will be presumptuous, they will be brazen. Observing life, culture, as it happens demands quick assertions that will occasionally turn out incorrect or hyperbolic. Some aspects of the blog will assert creative licences while others solidly based in fact. Most will be a hybridization of art and science. I am not trying to convince you of anything. I am trying to define and understand American culture in the twenty-first century and how it influences people for personal reason. I welcome you to come along and play a part in these thought experiments, but first I recommend you familiarize yourself with some terms I use at Lexicon.
Now, buckle up, Buddy, and let’s go.
