[I Said I Didn't Think It Would Be A Collectivist State So Much As A Wilderness In Which Most People Lived Hand To Mouth, And The Rich Would Live Like Princes - Better Than The Rich Had Ever Lived, Except That Their Lives Would Constantly Be In Danger From The Hungry Predatory Poor. All The Technology Would Serve The Rich, But They Would Need It For Their Own Protection And To Assure Their Continued Prosperity.]

Quotes About Mondamin

"And he saw a youth approaching, Dressed in garments green and yellow, Coming through the purple twilight, Through the splendor of the sunset; Plumes of green bent oer his forehead, And his hair was soft and golden. Standing at the open doorway, Long he looked at Hiawatha, Looked with pity and compassion On his wasted form and features, And, in accents like the sighingOf the South-Wind in the tree-tops, Said he, "O my Hiawatha! All your prayers are heard in heaven, For you pray not like the others, Not for greater skill in hunting, Not for greater craft in fishing, Not for triumph in the battle, Nor renown among the warriors, But for profit of the people, For advantage of the nations. "From the Master of Life descending, I, the friend of man, Mondamin, Come to warn you and instruct you, How by struggle and by labor You shall gain what you have prayed for. Rise up from your bed of branches, Rise, O youth, and wrestle with me!" - Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
