A new direction for 2020

in #instagramlast year

The military posts have stopped because, after almost two years documenting how the DoD is spending our tax dollars, daily, to enrich ten or so multinational corporations, I decided I needed a new, more uplifting way to spend my time.

So I'm back to promoting economic education for kids.

I'm doing this in a few different ways, but primarily using Instagram to share byte-sized amounts of information, one image at a time. My geke account on Instagram is "crypto.geke" if you're interested in following. Below is a snapshot showing the culmination of my efforts over the last few weeks to get this account up and running.


Not only am I sharing economic theory, but also graphic info on the basics of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, with even a policy opinion or two thrown in:


I'm thinking of starting a separate Instagram account to share the venns, primarily as a way to organize them all in one place. I'll also be listing them on the geke.us website (which is where each original image is stored) but the Wordpress theme I currently use isn't allowing me to organize and display the venns in the way I'd prefer. And so, we soldier on....

Once the venn account is also up and running on Instagram I'll make an announcement on Steemit. And if you're on Instagram, please let me know in the comments!



'Kids say the darndest things.' Kids have a tendency to cut through the crap that we have gradually been convinced moderates and affects the facts. Things they learn literally form permanent neuronal networks in their brain, that forever after impact how they think. Supporting their tendency to veracity with simple factual information, like 'sharing requires ownership', and 'doctors serve who pays them', is not only good for kids, but for the society they will control when they attain majority.

I've enjoyed the Venns because they enabled me to grasp how war profiteering was ongoing in real terms. I approve of your new focus, however, because I reckon it's more important to enable our posterity to better control war profiteering than that I know a damn thing about it.


Thank you so much for the encouragement and kind words! You'd be surprised how little I hear it.

You have an agile mind, a good heart, and sound work ethic. I am surprised you aren't overwhelmed with folks grateful for that constantly.

Just so you hear it again =)
