After a dozen years in the Canadian Army, and 30 years in the Canadian Institute of Strategic Studies and the Mackenzie Institute, I now find myself without a suitable vehicle for my talents and perspectives.  I am a superb writer, speaker and lecturer; an expert in several fields of knowledge; and possessed of the ability to rapidly synthesize new information.  In an era where information flows so quickly, good-quality analysis and practical perspective is often lacking... that's where I'm needed.

By creating my 'Think Tank of One', I intend to provide timely and reasoned comment and interpretation on issues related to organized violence and instability.  

Friends and supporters will receive a monthly briefing on a relevant issue.  As the project continues, I'll be building an exciting website and providing regular commentary on current events on Youtube.  

Everyone's challenge these days is to make sense of the flood of information we all cope with, I can be a rock in that river.

My personal philosophy is I've always got something new to learn, this means I've always got something new to share.

One way or another, this is my last appeal.

This was to be the vehicle that I used to raise funds to keep myself going while I looked to re-ignite my career. However, wolf is not only at the door, it's chasing me out of it and into the street. I'm out of time and resources.

If I land somewhere on my feet, I'll keep blogging for the joy of it, but I won't be asking for funding. Work is slowly coming my way, and I remain (often foolishly) optimistic, but the crunch time has come.

For the help I have received so far, much thanks, and I know that some happy day, I'll have a lot to pay forward. Let's just hope that day comes very soon.
Like the sign says...

August might be the 'silly season'; but the historian in me notes how many major crises began in Augusts past -- just look at my WW2 Facebook posts even if you do not follow my blog! The need for perspective never ends, and I will stay at my post... Of course, your help is always much appreciated!
Always keep an eye on the future; I do!

Hello all, just passing my tin-cup around for support with my blogs on WW-2 and my Think Tank of One Page. This week, I've explored internet propaganda, the roots of modern extremism, hoplophobia, and the stretched nature of Toronto's police... next week could be even more interesting!
Truely Canadian... eh?
