Going Back to Find Our Way Forward:

Trump, a Great Awakening, and the Re-Founding of America

We find ourselves in a pivotal era filled with defining moments and global shifts. What’s the significance of it all? While many perceive doom and gloom, Going Back to Find Our Way Forward argues that these times are not only clarifying but also immensely hopeful.

To truly grasp the promise ahead, we must unravel the threads of our past, uncovering the hidden opportunities that surround us. It may seem paradoxical, but amidst the apparent chaos, there’s a silver lining waiting to be seized.

The metaphorical red pill, a ubiquitous symbol, has awakened millions to truths previously obscured. Enter Donald Trump, the relentless dispenser of this awakening. As truths come to light, the enemies of honesty are unmasked, marking the onset of another Great Awakening. Similar to the historical event that birthed America, our contemporary awakening fuels a renewed confidence in the possibility of a re-founded nation.

In this book everyone who loves truth and America will find one man’s take on the requirements for true human flourishing, and liberty and justice for all.

Thank you for visiting my website. For background, I grew up Catholic, for which I am grateful, as it prepared me to receive the truth of God’s word when it was presented to me from a Protestant perspective. Growing up in the Los Angeles area, I went to Arizona State University in 1978, and moved into a dorm room next to two Jesus freaks, as I thought of them at the time. They invited me to a Bible study by asking if I would like to learn what the Bible had to say about who Jesus is.

Because of several things that happened throughout my teenage years (without getting into how God had prepared me for that moment), that was the perfect question to ask me. Despite having gone to church every Sunday for as long as I can remember, hearing readings from and sermons on Scripture, Jesus was an enigmatic figure to me. For whatever reason (and I do not blame the Catholic church or the church we attended), I had not up to that time been given ears to hear or eyes to see. The seeds of God, however, had been adroitly planted by the Holy Spirit in my soul throughout my young life.


The books or music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through them was longing . . . Do what we will, then, we remain conscious of a desire which no natural happiness will satisfy.

– CS Lewis, The Weight of Glory
