I’m James Keena
This website is a collection of my thoughts, writings, and public appearances. I typically explore topics that challenge my own thinking and broaden my own intellectual horizons. Hopefully, my words challenge readers to expand their intellectual horizons too. The topics I write about include philosophy, the meaning of life, economics, and politics. I learn a lot about myself and the world as I write, and I hope that you discover new things as you explore my work.
I’m an author, educator, and activist committed to defending individual freedom. I frequently speak at town hall meetings and seminars. My mission is to inspire, educate, and challenge my audiences.
I’ve written three books:
- An epic dystopian novel titled “2084: American Apocalypse” to be released April 2020
- A non-fiction warning to the middle class titled “We’ve Been Had”
- A political satire titled “Insurrection Resurrection”
You can read excerpts from each if you click on the hotlinks above.
Prior to my career as an author and speaker, I was a C-level executive in the computer and automotive industries. I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Economics from the University of Detroit. I’m married with eight children and 20 grandchildren. I stay active by reading, writing, speaking, and participating in hiking, kayaking, cycling, basketball, football, and hockey.
