The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.
– G.K. Chesterton (1874 – 1936)
The Cycroft.com, Cycroft.net, Russ-Campbell.com and Russ-Campbell.net group of websites is published and edited by me, blogger and outdoor photographer, Russell (Russ) Campbell. These Web pages are mainly about politics, family research and photography. In time, however, I plan to cover a wider range of subjects.
I was born in Kingston, Jamaica, W.I. and moved to Canada in my teens. After a career during which I was at different times a chief financial officer, a chief information officer, a chief operating officer and a consultant, I became a blogger and “discovered” digital photography.
My commentary and essays have appeared in print and on several websites, including the following: Burlington Post, Canada.com, Hamilton Spectator, National Post, Our Burlington, Ottawa Citizen and Times Colonist. In 2011, essays and selected blog entries of mine were published on Postmedia Network’s (Canada.com) The Real Agenda blog. And links to my blog have been featured in the Best of the Blogs section of iPolitics.ca.
My wife, Denisé, and I live at Burlington, Ontario, Canada where I spend my time photographing nature and writing as a conservative who believes that common sense and independent thinking trump political dogma and that partisanship should not trump civic duty.
