Begin with the Beginning

From the outset, the westernization of the new world was conflicted. On the one hand, was Team Goliath, representing the powerful few whose interests were driven by a lusty appetite for wealth, empire, domination of the masses, control, sex drugs rock and roll, etc. etc. etc. We’ve all been there, in one form of fantasy or another. These guys were just doing the things they wanted to do. They inherited a hierarchical structure which froze them at the top. It is pure and organic that their decisions would be driven by an insatiable desire to perpetuate this outcome.This Old World collectivist inheritence is at the core of the very many man and horrifically shameful events which haunt each of us rebels in that speical innermost space where there is no room to hide.

Enter Team David; the rebels. This is your team.

There are two very distinct types of folks which make up our squad. First, we have the puritan. This guy showed up because he wanted boundless opportunity to explore human existence nurtured by his exacting form of idealogically driven disciplines, deviation from which would be dealt with in the harshest manner imaginable.

The other folks are the cavaliers. They stand apart as the principled individualist. They are the ones who do not care what others do or say, how they act, what they believe, etc., as long as his ability to do their thing is unimpeded. They tend to be mannerly and gentlemanly; they genuinely care and have interest in those different from themselves and strive to make those in their company as comfortable as possible.

What we have is the ultimate stage for compressing our human capacity for growth.

I agree with Warren Buffet that we Americans did win the lottery when we landed here; the acceleration is exhilerating.
