The crowning achievement of civilization is the power of the human mind. It is the greatest tool and natural resource available to us. It is what transforms every other natural resource available to us. It is what has lifted us out of the Dark Age of fear, abject poverty, shortened life spans, and high infant mortality. Through the cumulative ingenuity of countless intrepid entrepreneurs and inventors, Free Market Capitalism has provided an abundance of wealth that has catapulted our comfort and standard of living into the stratosphere. Our lives are no longer threatened by trivial infections or the natural world.
The only remaining threat to our existence is our own rigid authoritarian dogma. We are held back by those individuals who obstinately to cling to barbaric notions of domination and violence. The power hungry control freaks clamor incessantly about the need to be afraid of your neighbor, this religion, or that group. They declaim that the only panacea is to give them more currency and more power over your life. They are the horse and buggy carriage that vainly endeavors to rationalize its existence in a world of spacecrafts and Maglev trains. Its irrelevancy is becoming more apparent with each glorious innovation. In a world of bustling productivity, it is not necessary to fight evil with violence. Simply strip it of its power by inundating it with a tsunami of innovation. It will be unable to stand its ground and will be forced to retreat back into the abyss from whence it emerged, utterly defeated without a shot fired.
