Dissection of a Misanthrope

The Writing Diary of M Brace DeFreak

The Sateric Dedication Page

Dedicated to the doctors who brought forth the suffering artist within me. Most indebted to the torture endured in the military and the subsequent treatment by the Veterans Administration.

If I place a dedication page into this novel, this seems a likely choice.

Sex and the Fertility Cult

Sex is what my fictional cult members do and sex how everyone gets here. My cult sues sex for profit and power, but the reason fertility cults existed for centuries is due to the importance of the sex act.

The groping issue in the news makes me wonder where the line exists, now. Single people should be sexually playful if they wish they wish to find a mate.Accusations should factor in marital status when deciding where the line rests. It’s no surprise that most of the sexual harassers came from the liberal media.

Secrets of Spanish Florida – A Secrets of the Dead Special

This special on PBS was overly favorable to my Spanish ancestors but didn’t address the religious tensions and the Inquisition. The story of the Huguenots was underdone.and fails to note how the widespread use of slavery by Catholic countries far exceeded the use in Protestant countries. After watching the documentary, you might see the wrong proportions of use.

My Spanish ancestors lived thru most of the period covered; since they arrived in the early 1600’s and my Native American ancestors lived through more.

In the Land of From Somewheres Else

Florida is ‘The  Land of From Somewheres Else because people keep invading my native land and not even the Seminoles can call this their native land because the most native Native Americans were allied with the Spanish. My Native American ancestor’s Spanish name hints she comes from a truly native tribe such as the Timucuans. Every time I go to the store, I’m surrounded by obvious invaders from another land, but I doubt any of them feels more alienated.

My Disclaimer

The alternative dimension; in which the storyline of this novel exists, is fictitious and only exists in such a dimension where ancient Mystery cults survived to this parallel age, so no names are changed to protect the innocent, in a world where no one over diaper pooping age is innocent–so the names, places, and events alluded to in this novel may serve the great goddess of history and trivia. Parallel worlds share aspects, but by no means remain faithful to the loopity-loop specs of so-called Earth Prime.

My use of trivia and history makes the disclaimer difficult, but the statement explains my use of trivia. The readability suffers because I prefer the use of such jargon to simulate typical legal jargon.

My Family Goes Back Farther

I am to Florida as a Puerto Rican is to Puerto Rico, but Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor penalizes us for having too much White blood and she was appointed by Obama who along with his foreign father was privileged enough attend Harvard. If the US is so biased against that African heritage–why did Obama’s father choose to come here. None in my family had significant help in attending a college, It’s odd how both Sotomayor and I come from mestizo bloodlines but I’m supposed to be discriminated against because I’m generally a White guy with a Southern accent; yet, my Native American ancestor is from a tribe more native than the Seminoles; they steal my ancestors’ bones.

Former literary agent, Amy Boggs, also discriminated against White, straight males until my email made her a former agent. I can’t prove I’ve been blackballed by literary agencies due to my stand against bigotry against me, but it’s certainly a possibility–literary agencies do not like being criticised, but I don’t care for abusive racism aimed against me and I have several personal incidents where those of another complexion harassing me, in my homeland.

White (genderist) Feminists seem like Boggs and the View from the Drawbridge lady spat hate at straight White guys. Boggs deserved to lose her job because she didn’t believe fair treatment should be applied to all and Barbara what’s her face should lose her job as a Seattle drawbridge operator because she showed no apology for her bigotry. There are many White Feminist elitists with this same attitude toward discrimination and they should all be the White people to lose their job for bigotry reasons.

Dream State by Diane Roberts mentions how rich White elitist from the North discriminated against White natives such as my family (though they have Native American roots), My novels feature different time periods in Florida history an I noticed how the cover above depicts the time periods within the lettering which is cool but I’m not sure if I should do something similar.

Any lawyers who want to sue Obama and Sotomayor for me–feel free to contact me.

Grandpa?

The Spanish name of my (Native American) great-great-grandmother suggests I, in all likelihood, descend from Timucuan ancestors. Double-jointedness runs in the family, so I jokingly refer to the sorcerer. De Bry created this sketch from memory, so the symbols encircling the sorcerer probably falls far from accurate.

The American Gods Disclaimer

Neil Gaiman uses Lucille Ball to represent the media gods and this sort of describes my use of real people in my novel. The I Love Lucy Show ushered in a new era of television, so Lucille Ball is a fitting goddess but I’m not sure about the use of a disclaimer for such use. My use of trivia creates a chance for legal backfire, so I’m trying to understand the subject. There is a public figure loophole which may handle my situation and I’m certain it handled Gaiman’s.

The Legality of a Fictional Conspiracy Theory

Would the Timberlake clan sue me? Legality is one reason I hesitate publishing my novel. Fact–the Timberlake name is linked to the Feminist factions spawned in France and the powerful media manipulator, William Randolph Hearst, and has circus links through the Flying Silverlakes, but my true interest is how they crisscross Florida. The cult in my novel does not exist. so the Timberlake family can’t be involved with the cult and the only reason I use the name is for historical and fictional reasons, but unfortunately, that leaves me on shaky legal ground.

Slander is the issue of consequence. Do I say or imply anything worse about William Randolph Hearst than Wikipedia or a history book? I don’t think so, Hearst manipulated the news. Fake news isn’t anything new. The other dangerous ground upon which I tread is the link to my fictional cult and this cult may appear evil, but in reality, my cult just reflects society. Creation of a plausible conspiracy seemed interesting, but this plausibility leaves me mired in a legal quagmire.

I obviously allude to Hedy Lamarr, in the first chapter, but I do so because I respect her contribution to science. Placing her in the Dove faction of my cult is my way of steering away from slander. Does the act of placing her a fertility cult slander an actress who obviously capitalized on her sexuality? Personally, I believe not; but it wouldn’t surprise me if some screams slut-shaming. If you interpret my post, Tight G-strings don’t hurt Pink’s head, correctly, you will see I respect Pink’s attitude and I place Lamarr in this category which owns up to their use of sexuality and O don’t slut-shame Ariana Grande–I cast shame at her hypocrisy.

Even though I don’t consider my novel slanderous and my interest in trivia and history is plain to ee==I’m still not sure If I’m on the solid legal ground and this depresses me. I don’t see a legal disclaimer that addresses my use of trivia, so I’m probably screwed. If anyone has an idea on how to deal with a fictional conspiracy theory based reality.
