Jeff Mincey's Blog

Jeff welcomes you to read his words here.

Jeff Mincey began his career as a musician and teacher of music. He composed mainly in the classical and jazz genres while recording folk music and performing throughout the Midwest. A decade later he ventured into software and technology which took him headlong into the corporate realm, an experience which quickly radicalized his politics and his outlook on economics and society.

Though he was born into a Southern Baptist family (before this denomination took a sharp fundamentalist turn), Jeff became an agnostic at the young age of seventeen and remains one to this day. However, despite having no god beliefs and eschewing dogma in all its forms, he is open to metaphysics and spirituality, and theology and other disciplines of philosophy are close to his heart.

In his twenties, Jeff characterized himself as a fiscal conservative and social liberal until he came to realize that the fault line between the two is illusory and that fiscal policy and social policy are inseparable and organic. Jeff now jokes that he's "to the left of Marx," and he self-defines as a feminist and strong proponent of social justice, and this orientation forms the leitmotiv of his writings.

A news junkie for much of his life, Jeff has come to despair at what passes for journalism and public discourse; and with the aid of blog sites such as Everyday Citizen, he hopes to play a small part in changing it for the better. We're delighted that Jeff has joined our Everyday Citizen community.

After having meandered throughout the Midwest, Jeff now makes his home in the Twin Cities of Minnesota with his family of cats.
