This blog is written in a style that attempts to emulate the late, great Hunter S Thompson.If you don’t like it you consider my effort a failure, if you find it amusing, then I have met the challenge. If you don’t care then neither do I.
It is Gonzo in expression and should not be mistaken for, or compared to, writing I do that is more academic and measured in tone. This blog is a reflection of Ethical Martini and should not be read as the whole essence of who I am. I deliberately use a literary method that draws on Orwell – truth is a revolutionary act and Gonzo – the first-person, colourful, forceful, satirical and humorous affect of HST.
If you take this blog too seriously or read too much out of it, then I apologise in advance for offending you. If, on the other hand, you are of a species known as “dribblejaws” and you’re looking for a fight over politics or language, then this is probably not the place for you.
I get angry at injustice and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty, though I prefer bomb-chucking to foxhole digging.
I enjoy life, including the occasional martini; you should too.
