This site examines critical issues that the author considers to be important, some existentially so. As such, errors and falsehoods are identified, illuminated and corrected or dismissed. The general approach is primarily evidence-based rather than opinion and emotion-based.

Issue content may be aggregated. Seemingly disparate issues are connected.  The viewpoint is that the world in all its aspects as we know it, forms a complex dynamic and adaptive system whose behaviour is cyclical rather than linear, and prone to chaotic transitions.

The site also collects items of personal reference and research of interest possibly only to the author.

The term ‘POOG’ is an macro for “pissed-off old guy”, encountered in the Ottawa Citizen around 2010-11. In searching its provenance I came across another definition which fits remarkably well:

The POOG, September, 2020.

The mightiest of all men. He fights ignorant darkness in the name of wisdom, truth, courage, and honor.
