[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.]

Jaeda DeWalt Quotes

"Living in the land of, "What if....?" leads to emotional paralysis. It sets the stage for doom and gloom thinking. It prevents us from experiencing the beauty of the present moment. Happiness resides in the here and now. It can not thrive in a prison of the past or in the worry of future outcomes that may or may not, happen. We need to trust that we have the divine wisdom within ourselves and through the support of others, to climb the treacherous terrain this human existence brings. It is worth the struggle. The view from the top is extraordinary. Onward and upward!"

Quotes About Change And Success

"There is one aspect of the change in moral values brought about by the advance of collectivism which at the present time provides special food for thought. It is that the virtues which are held less and less in esteem and which consequently become rarer and precisely those on which the British people justly prided themselves and in which they were generally agreed to excel. The virtues possessed by Anglo-Saxons in a higher degree than most other people, excepting only a few of the smaller nations, like the Swiss and the Dutch, were independence and self-reliance, individual initiative and local responsbility, the successful reliance on voluntary activity, noninterference with ones neighbor and tolerance of the different and queer, respect for custom and tradition, and a healthy suspicion of power and authority." - Author: Friedrich Hayek
