A freelance writer with a background in cultural anthropology. Traveled to Southeast Asia as a young freelance reporter during the war in Viet Nam, and remained in Bangkok where he married and stayed on – as so many others did at the time.

A Minority of One was the title of a stencilled magazine opposing the Viet Nam War, that somehow had found its way from America to my country town in Lapland when I was a teenager.

I don’t remember the name of the man behind it, but I was impressed that someone believed enough in the power of words and reason to challenge the US government over Viet Nam with words and a stencilled magazine…

Truth has nothing to do with majority opinion!
