Hi everyone, I would like to tell you why I haven’t posted much over the last month, and what it means for the future. It all started a couple months ago with a “coincidence.” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. knew my work vaguely before then, as a fellow Covid dissident and environmentalist. But that had little to do with this coincidence. One of my readers won a fundraising raffle for “a day of falconry with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.” She was allowed to take a guest, so she invited me.
Wow, Charles! This brings tears of joy and hope to my eyes in reading this. What an exciting step. I've already come out in favor of Kennedy's candidacy and this is truly magnificent that you are working with his campaign. I read his book, American Values, last year and found it to be incredibly good. What a leader he is, and I agree with you that he is just the kind of leader we need. The first step it seems to me is to convince Biden and the DNC to hold Democratic primary debates, which I believe are currently not planned.
WOW. I felt calm and strong reading this, and grateful for your contribution of "reunion" ideas to this campaign! I can feel a seismic shift happening in my life as well; an ongoing mantra is I'd like to be helpful while feeling creative and joyful. Thanks for sharing your inspiration, as it helps ignite mine, wherever it leads! Excited for this campaign on many levels. Thanks, Charles!
This warms my heart. I'm not American, but American politics affects us all and news of Kennedy running is hope. You deserve this wonderful opportunity and I wish you all the best on this exciting new adventure!
Congrats on the next chapter. I actually re-registered as a democrat for the first time in a long time (Libertarian since) just to vote for RFK in the primaries. Everyone I talk to says "he has no chance." That attitude is the problem. We need hope. If we are truly in a time of great change, at some point that change has to manifest in the physical. Hopefully this is one of those times.
Yes, Kennedy is truly different. Go for it and have fun! "You shall go forth in joy and be led forth in peace" from the book of Isaiah.
That’s some hope for the world. Thank you.
I'm thrilled to read this. Please let me know if there's anything at all I can do to help out in New Hampshire. He will win here, I'm sure of it.
Hope. This news is thrilling to hear on many levels... first, the palpable feeling of excitement and alignment for you, Charles, that comes through in this writing. Also, the hope and anticipation of much healing to come from this partnership of sorts. I have long admired RFK Jr. and his work for the environment and human rights, and was delighted when I heard he was running in 2024 for president. Listening to his speech several weeks ago to announce his candidacy was inspiring. I recall thinking it was very Charles-esque for exactly the reasons you shared in this writing.
Love this! Thank you for helping get the best man for the job into office.
What a surprising, courageous, exciting and uplifting move!
All the best on this new part of the path. Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do. With gratitude from Amsterdam...
This is so fabulous, such good news: thank you, Charles. I agree with you
and your sense/intuition that RFKJr is going to win the election. Yes.
Let us all proceed with that in mind.
Terrific direction. Good for us all.
Fascinating! This kind of reminds me of when the Harlem Globetrotters or the Three Stooges (in animated form) would show up randomly on Scooby Doo --- It's this "cross-branding" juxtaposition that I got very excited about as a little kid and I always use those Scooby Doo shows as an example of worlds colliding -- no, it's that specific agents or characters from completely unrelated universes are suddenly in a plot (always a Mystery) together. There's just something very fun and engaging about it. This is and exciting development that I am struggling to find the right label for, but it's emotional in nature. Never in a million years would I predict that a similar kind of cross-pollinating that I have spent a life in music doing could happen in POLITICS?!? Godspeed!
I am so excited to hear this! Looking forward to more from you and Bobby!
Wow Charles! Exciting times ahead. Much luck - I’m standing next to you in England and wishing you much luck with this next step. Couldn’t think of a better opportunity for change than you and he plus the team being open to discussion and unafraid of confessing uncertainties. Go for it!
Wow this is amazing news!
