My musings and I welcome you!

John Carver, Ph.D.John just thinking is a reservoir of my thoughts and conclusions on a variety of topics, mostly of philosophical, political, or social importance. Essays will be of differing subjects, lengths, and frequency. They are meant to share thoughts, not to begin dialogue. If, however, they do chance to stimulate ideas by others, especially thoughts that challenge previous beliefs and opinions, more the better.

My intention is neither to be antagonistic nor iconoclastic, but simply to follow wherever careful thought leads me. For that, I claim no certitude, just a commitment to integrity and candor.

Here’s the way this works. You can visit anytime you wish; maybe there’ll be a new post, maybe not. But if you’d like to avoid having to remember, click on “follow” (you’ll find it on this and other pages) and give your email address. You will be henceforth notified by email of new postings. You can read the new post right in that email or, if like me you enjoy reading in better typeface, click on the link provided to be brought directly to this site. Of course, there is no fee and you can cancel any time.

You are invited to register your comment, whether it be criticism or agreement. You may email me directly at or use the comment section at the bottom of each post.
