America was a country founded by failures who could not get along in the Old World and who came to a wilderness because there was simply no place else to go.
A fascinating article that I wish I read when it was first published in 1976. Wow. What was I wasting my youth on in 1976? What was I being taught so that I would become just another automaton? Doesn’t matter now, eh. No. It doesn’t matter. For they will publish this article again in a hundred July 4’s from now. And it won’t matter. Money’s a pretty powerful thing, baby. The love of money and success and… whatever.
