The End of
This website is now closed

Started as a website project eight years ago dedicated to stopping a conventional bomb test on radioactive grounds in the U.S. called 'Divine Strake,' grew into a repository of research and writings on a large number of mostly unsupported causes in the anti-nuclear movement related to environmental degradation and human rights violations throughout the nuclear age - as evidenced by the partial bibliography of writings seen below. The site adhered to my philosophy of knowledge-based activism, following in the tradition of other research activists like Ward Churchill.

There were three main unfixable problems that led to the shutdown of this website. One was the unsatisifactory laws on the books in the U.S. that allow for huge financial pitfalls for holders of intellectual property (IP) when their material appears on the internet without their consent and can't easily get the material removed. The second point: was free (and ad-free) and I relied on donors, words of thanks and citizen action to legitimize the hours and hours of work weekly that I put into it. But all of these forms of support were perpetually lacking (the few that did support me have my deepest thanks). The third critical factor in my decision to close shop was the failure of my website visitors to adopt, and lend their time and effort to, the causes championed by my web project, a one-person organization. Few people were or ever became interested in these orphaned issues. If more than just the handful of people that I know of were truly interested and motivated to act, then I never found that out.

All three points wouldn't have grown into such massive problems had there been greater respect in society for the labor of independent researchers and investigators, including those in the nuclear realm. If the general public continues to fail to respect the activist-researcher and independent-scientist laborer, then we must expect a worsening of public ignorance and more nuclear incidents and related crimes. We need to link our passion to stop the reckless advance of nuclearism with the research activist-scientist laborer.
