Unlike Sartre, Smith seeks fame and fortune. He expects to earn it, though, and has seen ample proof it will not
come easy. His real name is, in fact, George F. Smith. His formal training is in psychology, philosophy, and mathematics
at Tulane University and the State University of New York/Buffalo. He did graduate work in achievement motivation while
trying unsuccessfully to get into a doctoral program in clinical psychology.
Smith's purpose in writing articles is to present a rational, laissez-faire analysis of current issues. He
sees the world as neither liberal nor conservative, left nor right, Democrat nor Republican, but rather as Force versus Freedom
-- or Big Government versus small government. His focus is on the individual and self-responsibility in a society generally
hostile to both.
He also writes feature-length screenplays that he tries to sell to Hollywood.
In a past life he was regarded as somewhat more than computer literate. During the '80s he wrote and marketed Boosters,
a library of assembler routines for Turbo Pascal programmers. Some of the software got tested with his three-year-old
twin daughters perched on his thigh playing Big Bird games on an adjacent Commodore 64. In addition to programming,
he's done budget analysis, support work, and end-user training in the computer field.
A certified Toastmaster who enjoys public speaking, he welcomes the opportunity to address your club, school, or convention.
He's also available for guest commentary on talk radio and TV.
