About Jim Stalker’s Substack
This is Jim Stalker's Substack. I write behind the Substack paywall once a week.

Why Substack and a Paywall
In today's world, speaking freely is a daring act. The daily news is teeming with controversial topics that can quickly spiral into reasons for public outrage or even cancellation. As a writer with ambitions, albeit measured, I've learned to tread carefully with my words.
This reminds me of a piece of advice from my graduate school days: "Write as if you'll be on the front page of the NY Times." That guidance is more pertinent and valuable than ever.
That's why I've chosen Substack. Here, behind a modest paywall—a core part of this platform's model—I find the freedom to express myself without restraint.
Tell the Truth and Run
Welcome to "Tell the Truth and Run," where I'll share my most personal essays and uncensored thoughts. Whether it's diving deep into controversial topics or reflecting on everyday observations, I'm here to establish a bond of trust with you, my readers. My commitment is to offer integrity in my writing, mirroring the integrity I strive for in life.
In a digital landscape crowded with influencers who often mask sponsored content as personal preference, I offer something different: unvarnished truth. I'm not here to blend into the background noise of polished, promotional content.
I tell the truth and then, well, I run.
Join me in this journey of honest expression for a modest subscription fee. I hope to not just share my thoughts but also to hear yours. What does speaking freely mean to you in these complex times?
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to our journey together.
