Tell us about yourself.
I am a writer, musician and technologist. I grew up in Missouri and went the University of Missouri and graduated in 2001 with an interdisciplinary studies degree. I have worked mostly in the tech field in a lot of different capacities, laptop repair, help desk, network administration, system administration. I have written several books, screenplays, plays and am a prolific forum poster. I have played in a lot of bands as a drummer and taught myself guitar, and I’m working on an album of original songs. I have lived in Germany when I was younger and recently I tried to move there again but it fell apart when the lockdown happened. I moved to Iowa last fall to be near family. I am trying to promote the four books I have self published since 2017 and I have faced a lot of censorship and harassment online trying to do so. I have also vowed not to use any of the major platforms as I believe those are part of the problem, and I know they will just ghost de-index me anyway. I have experienced a lot of state harassment and stalking due to my activism, and I have written the best that I know about how to protect yourselves from these unconstitutional and monstrous practices. I ran my own site until I couldn’t afford it and I am considering starting another. I am also an archivist of my culture and history, and maintain my own video, music, documentary and idea collection. I am single, live alone, and I would like to change that but under current circumstances it has been nearly impossible. Lately I have been playing drums at my church and otherwise spending a lot of time alone. I think the lockdown and mask mandate is idiocy, that has not been effective, and has done much harm, while empowering the worst elements of society.
Why are you here?
I read about Free Keene and I believe we might get along, and I need to make friends and find people who I can work with. I think you might like my books and that I might like you.
How did you find these forums?
Gold and Black forum on reddit linked to the story of the recent arrests and I found the free Keene radio project and this forum. I liked what I saw, so I immediately decided to try to be part of it in some capacity.
My books are available for sliding scale on Leanpub but they are also available for free on Library Genesis at these links:
You can also hear some of my music and storytelling at:
or searching youtube with “J. Michael Hudson Presents” until I am censored there, but so far burying in search results has been sufficient.
As my work pokes the bear by calling out the control mechanisms that are at work in society, and since most “alternative” culture that exists in the united states is in some or another way comprimised, I would like to ask you to download and store my pdfs offline if you have the chance to do so.
If there were one thing I would like everyone to read and share it might be this:
I am looking for a job and I would definitely consider relocating to be part of your project. I would enjoy being part of the forums and discussing what is going on, I am very experienced identifying forum trolling and I follow the debate pyramid of discourse where personal attacks are disallowed and immediately identify insincere operators in the public, with which we are plagued.
Hi, nice to meet you, I hope we can be friends. I would enjoy the chance to talk about my books and answer any questions you might have.
Thank you for inviting me and considering me to be part of your project.
Cheers in dark times,
J. Michael Hudson
