What (and who) is the Coffee Coaster?

Hello, I’m Brian Wright, proprietor of the Coffee Coaster, just a regular fellow who has done a lot of reading and writing in a political-philosophical vein. My roots are middle America, Baby Boomer, Goldwater/Ayn Rand-generation freedom philosophy. In the early 1970s, I was active in defining the secular-humanist libertarian movement and a cofounder of the Libertarian Party of Michigan (1972).

Starting roughly in the early 1990s… more to come … [this page doesn’t appear to have a draft location]

For more than five years, Brian Wright has been proprietor of TheCoffeeCoaster.com, a ‘wholistic libertarian’ opinion and (movie and book) review site. His writing—and that of many of his guest writers—comes mostly from a caring and reasonable ‘libertarian’ humanitarian perspective, that is, as a (world) citizen-intellectual who has a) appreciated Ayn Rand, b) broke sweat for liberty, and c) become a ‘person in his own right’… increasingly, he hopes, with a sense of humor. For example, here’s a parody of the media coverage of Ron Paul Campaign 2012.

More to come…

Live Free and Flourish!

  1. HOW TO CONVERT YOU BOOKS TO KINDLE

    u may recall having trouble converting a pdf or ms doc to the proper one for Kindle. turns out it’s simple, once you find the right person at Kindle to ask, which took a while.
    the instructions are below, but simplified, to convert your paper books to Kindle:
    it’s done at the KDP page where u probably already have an account for your books.
    go to the Bookshelf – if your book that you want to Kikndlize is not there, just click upper left in the ‘+ new kindle box’
    now for the secret. if you have an existing file there that failed, current or in draft, you must DELETE it from the Bookshelf. the reason is you cannot load a proper kpf file that Kindle accepts.
    then create a ‘new kindle’ book on the bookshelf, and upload a kpf file of it. the rest is routine. it will upload. u can preview it or not. it will be perfect. i just did a dozen of them in two hours.
    again, the key is that you must remove any existing kindle title from the Bookshelf, and then recreate it there. then it will take the pdf file. anyone can convert a pdf/ms to pdf, and there are probably free online services.
    the above is in summary what the below is saying.
