Replying to LO29315 --

Dear At, Mike and Jan,

I encountered Jeff Gates a couple of years ago wandering the information
wastelands of the internet. His worked seemed to me like an oasis. I wrote
to him and he was like his writing, and he reminded me of my muslim
friend, in that whenever we were in a shop he would say, " Andrew, there
is something you like, then please you must take it."

I would take the opportunity to promote capitalism, in as much as the
purchase of Gate's book 'Democracy at Risk' by Perseus Publishing $37.00
does that.

Here is his header for the chapter Education for Democratic Capitalism. "
Thus the task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen, but to think
what nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees."
Schopenhauer. That demands a little digestion. Something as well that
connects for me. Jung wrote reflecting on a long and practical life of
healing that though he has met and assisted many social luminaries and
gliterat(t)i (modern term) he sensed that the great fund of wisdom had
been met in the faces of the ordinary folk.

I commend another 'sentiment' from an imperfect man. "What self-centred
men have torn down, other-centred men can build up." Martin Luther King.
I, for one, like the idea if taking aside some self-centred men and
turning them upside down inside out into other-centred men.
