Personal life[ edit ] Moss was born in Bethpage, New York in and attended local schools.
I was largely raised in Ventura, California; my mother ran the household while my father worked to support the family. His entire career was spent working for the federal government, and all but one year was spent working for the Department of Defense.
If anything, the political outlook that I was raised with was fairly Cold War, but not too pronounced. I was taught that the Soviets were the bad guys, and my family generally supported politicians from the Democratic Party. My father was rather outraged when Nixon won the presidency inand I was saddened when Reagan beat Carter in My political outlook was fairly mainstream, which means that I was ignorant.
I kept my eyes open to see how closely reality matched my ideals, because I needed to honestly believe in my ideals. Upon graduating from college, I had a rather rude awakening as indoctrination and ideals brutally collided with reality. I eventually realized that my profession was virtually worthlessalthough that full realization was not clear for several years.
Then I met Dennis Lee and was able to live my dreams of trying to bring alternative energy to the world. After meeting Dennis, I had a very rude awakening, and my political education began in earnest.
Our efforts at developing alternative energy were definitely the targets of conspiracies. Policemen and others committed felonies while pursuing us, leading to the death of one woman.
Kangaroo courts, prison, murder, threatening phone calls in the night, and hiding from the murderers were common tales, and were the kind that few Americans hear firsthand.
It became obvious that the energy industry has maintained its technological monopoly by using extremely dirty tactics. It is one thing to hear the tales; it is quite another to live through them.
While Dennis was still in jail, I was introduced to Noam Chomsky and the political left. I consider left-wing scholarship to be superior.
The right and left both explain how the world works. Their perspectives can be divergent, but sometimes are nearly identical. The right sees the activities as more conscious conspiratorialwhile the left sees it as more unconscious structural, institutional behavior.
Fundamentalist Christians populate the right and academics populate the left. Both have their stories on how the world came to be like it is.
One was a conscious creation, while the other was a big and unfathomable accident. Each perspective has its strengths and weaknesses.
The right can veer into outright paranoia and see a conspiracy behind every bush, as it ignored or underplays the structural aspects of what is happening. The police may throw people in jail for curing cancerbut may not know the real reason they threw them in jail or even care.
They were just following orders. It seems afflicted by too-often rejecting the notion that people can be consciously malicious and act in concert.Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two.
