An Optimistic Future

By John E. Wade II / August 29, 2019 /

I am an optimist at heart.  How else could I try to see the way toward heaven on earth – and do so persistently since year 2000? But our nation is in jeopardy – with a President who doesn’t embody the traits of a capable, wise, and honest leader.  And right now the Democrats in…

The Operation’s Repressive and Liberating Possibilities

By John E. Wade II / October 5, 2015 /

The reality of life is full of surprises. I really thought getting The Bipolar Millionaire finally in print would draw the press’s attention to how invasive a force such as a secret organization (with the government coupled with private entities) could pervade a person’s life—with long-term benevolent ends, but short-term “mistakes.” I would like to quote Henry…

The Operation as Described in “The Bipolar Millionaire”

By John E. Wade II / September 1, 2015 /

The Operation—as named by me—goes back to late 1998, probably when Dr. Alvin Cohen took over the management of my medication and made significant changes. It is comparable in terms of its long duration to when the federal government conducted a secret program (1932-1972) at Tuskegee Institute. In that infamous “study” 399 poor African-Americans with…
