The Distant Observer blog is a collection of notes and letters about current events and little known ideas. We apply creative thinking and alternative ideas to addressing and understanding contemporary problems and developments. Some of the things you’ll read here will not appear in the mainstream media. Some of ideas presented are immensely popular if rarely spoken of. Frequently our explanations seek to present modern issues in a simple and clear light. As always, this blog is meant to encourage you to think outside the box; to ignore the thoughts and ideas that the mass media has prescribed for us. If something makes sense here, share it! Post it to Facebook or Twitter, email to every contact you have. If you have a question or comment about any post, don’t be shy! Share it with everybody else who comes here. Together we can develop these ideas and hopefully change the way people think about the world around them.
