The Collective’s & Re-Engineering of Chaos

“From the volumes of history we witness repetitions; lessons the student seems most unwilling to learn.” 

This opening quote is from the book Valor in Prosperity and is one of many anecdotal references designed to crystalize a series of observations into a single phrase; likewise the case with the title of this offering, The Collective’s Re-Engineering of Chaos.

The Defiance of Ignorance, Again!


The Golden State is once again demonstrating the pervasiveness of a terminal disease and the unwillingness to accept a fundamental truth: There is always an “end”!  Ignorance in governance is dangerous largely due to yet another simple truth: Ignorance is always ignorant of its ignorance!
