Above are links to my essays; the underlined blue phrases in the essays are links to related materials. Some of the essays are the transcripts of videos, which are linked near the top or bottom of the essay page. Below is a list of just the videos, newest first. Some older essays and videos have been removed from this website because their content overlaps too greatly with that of newer material (but most older videos still can still be found at my youtube page).

I took the name “LeftyMathProf” in my email and web pages because I’m a leftist politically and a retired mathematics professor, and because it is a lot easier for most people to spell and pronounce than my real name (Eric Schechter, pronounced erik shektur).

I’m about as far to the left as one can go — I’m a Lennonist. That’s not Vladimir Lenin, but rather John Lennon:

“Imagine no possessions …
Imagine all the people sharing all the world …
I hope someday you’ll join us.”

But “someday” had better be soon, because both the ecosystem and our social fabric are collapsing — in my opinion, faster and more drastically than even Dr. Doom will tell you, and only a global eco-anarcho-zen-commie revolution can still save us. Best wishes to you and yours in the great changes that are coming soon to all of us.
