THINKERS UNDERGROUND is a prototype for a chat room that I am developing. The target audience is a mature, left-center community driven away from the shrill "Undergrounds" with their sound bite hysteria and ad hominems and ad horrendums.

The initial topic will be petroleum politics - from the role of petroleum politics in creating nations (see, e.g., William Engdahl's "A Century Of War : Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order" and the Sykes-Picot Agreement), creating, implementing and guiding our foreign policy, and the creation of non-state actors.

A subsequent topic will be our preparedness for massive natural disasters and terror attacks. Because of my own involvement with volunteer responder organizations, and my early professional experience in the "HazMat" field, I am going to explore our preparedness to withstand attacks against "HazMat" infrastructure (See, my friend Stephen Flynn's "America The Vulnerable: How Our Government Is Failing To Protect Us From Terrorism), as well as our ability to recover from tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes.

After that I want to explore some aspects of my own youth (chronological and political) as they relate to the "faith based left" movement.

It's an experiment, and if we go forward into a chat room, it will be monitored - and will not descend in the cesspool of racism and bigtry that has bedeviled other issue oriented chat rooms.

Hi. Nice setup. Mozel Tov.
Hi, it looks great!
