    is code for "frontier," one of the biggest and most enduring myths still being pedalled to the people.

    In my work I run into some of the rarest activities known to humanity, global communities that barely count a thousand people, that are up against automated labor and problem-solving, and outsourcing.

    There is absolutely no place I can run or hide to be the mythical rugged individual. I'm dependent on my intercessors in either the economy, the government or culture to decide what life space to grant me, and then to defend it from forces whose greater efficiency would let them grab it up.

    I'll watch the evolution of this "western" strategy but I'll be much friendlier to the concept of libertarianism after I bankrupt my first global corporation competitor.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy....--ML King, "Beyond Vietnam"
