THE MONEY QUESTION, THE DEMOCRACY ANSWER
Counting pennies, votes, and soil particles: Learning and Liberation
A rolling autobiography by a Chicago Baby Boomer
First posted July 2019
UPDATE August 9, 2022
The Last Three years (2019-22): A new chapter in my autobiography has just been published as a blog. In order to allow some time for wordsmithing, etc., I have not yet added it to the “Rolling Draft” PDF. Eventually I will add it after the EPILOGUE, which was written in 2019. Maintaining the chronology of writing is of higher importance than literal logic, in this case.
