About Me

David Taub Bancroft

Me standing in front of some trees

My name is David Taub Bancroft, and I live in Vancouver. I guess I’m some kind of writer. A stubborn Greenie, I studied political science and philosophy at Simon Fraser University and am currently working very, very slowly on my first novel. Writing is hard.

In this blog, I intend primarily to spout off on all things political, but I will not rule out the occasional book review or instance of shameless self-promotion in the rare event that something I write becomes published. My work has found its way into The Montreal Review, Zouch Magazine & Miscellany, the Mad Scientist Journal, Trust & Treachery, and backofthebook.ca. I am a regular contributor to rabble.ca.

Readers are encouraged to leave comments detailing how much they love this blog. All comments that stray from this approved theme will be censored.

  1. I like how upfront you are about censoring all comment that don’t mention how much the reader loves your blog. 😀
    Does this mean this comment might not be approved?

    • After some reflection, I decided to “approve” the above comment for appearance on this blog in order to demonstrate the depths of hatefulness to which some, though not all, of the dogmatically pro-Israel folks are willing to sink. Let it be a teachable moment.

  3. Hello David!
    I am happy to have found your blog (I hope this passes the test). Looking forward to reading your thoughts on things. I’m wondering if you do movie reviews?
    Your former co-worker and fellow cinephile,

    • Haha, sure, your comment passes.

      Good to hear from you, man, it’s been a while! I’m not updating this blog as often as I used to, but I still post from time to time. I wrote something movie-related back in 2019. Mostly I write about politics.

      Thanks for reading!
