"Peace is not the absence of war, but a virtue based on strength of character."
--philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632 to 1677)

Xerxes: There will be no glory in your sacrifice. I will erase even the memory of Sparta from the histories. Every piece of Greek parchment shall be burned and every Greek historian and every scribe shall have their eyes put out and their tongues cut from their mouths.

--David Brower, three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee

It's like I told my audience in Las Vegas: If you're going to gamble, gamble on Humanity's chances at achieving a Roddenberryian utopia -- don't bother with the kind of gambling done in a casino. Therefore, even if only a few people read this, I'm still going to encourage activism at all costs.
