Introduction Greenman is a pseudonym that I first used on bulletin boards. I have argued there for a democratic and progressive green approach, and as consistently as I could for broad left unity in the ongoing struggle. In the offline world I am a parent, trade union rep, Green Party (Green Left) activist, community campaigner, would-be writer, wide-reader, spiritual explorer with a liberal Christian approach and an interest in esoterica and religious history, moderate real ale drinker, left-group spotter and thorn in the side of pomposity and smugness, bureaucracy, concealment and manipulation.
Interests environmentalism, literature, libertarian socialism, global poverty, syndicalism, space exploration, music, left republicanism, film, liberal religion, secret societies, science fiction, philosophy, history, community organising, symbolism, mythology, painting, esoterica, cult TV, education and youth policy, food and diet, health and fitness.
