"Those who actually achieve much, although they may
desire the rewards, have also something in their nature which inclines them to
choose a certain kind of work as the road which they must travel if their
ambition is to be satisfied.
This artist's impulse, as it may be
called, is a thing of infinite value to the
individual, and often to the
world; to respect it in oneself and in others makes up nine tenths of the good
In most human beings it is rather frail, rather easily destroyed
or disturbed; parents and teachers are too often hostile to it, and our
economic system crushes out its last remnants
in young men and young women.
The result is that human beings cease to
be individual, or to retain the native
pride that is their birthright; they become
machine-made, tame, convenient for the bureaucrat and the drill-sergeant,
capable of being tabulated in statistics without anything being omitted.
This is the fundamental evil resulting from lack of liberty; and it is
an evil which is being continually intensified as population grows more dense
and the machinery of organization grows more efficient." -

commentators have offered reasons against this, we propose a novel public goods

Biomedical knowledge is a public good, available to any individual even

The public goods

advances have reduced the distance between cultures but unfortunately the
distance between interpersonal communicants appears to be expanding.
Paradoxically, the closer we get, the further
apart we appear to be. Communications technology is largely responsible for this
increasing social/interpersonal distance.
Tools are intended to make

emotional sense as equivalent to physically touching someone.
Hence, the paradox; one feels closer
because some form of contact is experienced and further apart because that
contact serves to create a less accurate representation of the participants and
their messages. The absence of the characteristics associated with face-to-face
communication can result in a loss of fidelity and an increase in the
psychological distance between communicants.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs
when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or
persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a
system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic
mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international
corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media
worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is
responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior
and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation.
Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores
and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt
international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the
ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing
emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through
prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the
destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not
adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
