Toward better understanding of the circulation of elites, please follow along on my journey on SubStack.
It turns out that while having a blog gave me a place to put my thoughts on “virtual paper” it seemed impossible for anyone to find my work.

If you want to follow along with my more frequent musings, as I said above SubStack is where to find me.
