From the outset, I intended for The Brotherhood of Dwarves to bind together a community of like-minded people. I know I’m not alone in my weariness of the fear-mongering media, corporate fascism, varying degrees of religious intolerance, and divisive politics that have ripped apart our society. I would like to see this site become a place where we can discuss the real issues we need to address and not be bombarded by the pseudo-debates of Chik-Fil-A or Duck Dynasty that are little more than overblown publicity stunts. I would like a community where we can disagree about our religious preferences without attacking each other’s intelligence levels. Let’s grow this community into a forum for discussing, with open minds and critical analysis, the issues we face.
At its heart, my series is about the triumph of personal relationships over materialism. It’s a message I believe our culture, especially the current generation, needs to hear now more than ever. I know this message is important. I know it needs to reach a broader audience. I also know that because that message contradicts the corporate narrative, it will never be accepted by the mainstream. As has been the case from day one, I will have to grow my audience one reader at a time, but if we can turn this community into one that is more interactive and supportive, with open discussions, I believe we can create a beacon of light for those seeking answers as to why materialism is so unfulfilling.
That will be my focus moving forward, to create a community for people who need to find their place in a world that is overrun by greed, fascism, and commercialism. I hope you will help out by commenting on more posts and engaging in open discussions. That’s all for now.
