Trust is Dead

Trust is breaking down in our societies — trust not just in big institutions but also in the natural good of the common man.

Politicians, bankers, delivery men, our neighbors, our doctors, our children’s teachers are all suspect, are all now known to be capable of doing wrong — we’ve seen all the gritty details in case after case.

Code=Trust

The future of trust is code, lines upon lines of unch...

I quite frankly enjoyed editing this book. This is a smooth YA adventure with likable characters, a tantalizing mystery and I learned a heck of a lot about Greek mythology. Sure, I'm the editor but I have no stake in the book's success. I'm ...more

Margaret Mead
“Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals. ”
Margaret Mead

Ayn Rand
“Hence the sterile, uninspiring futility of a great many theoretical discussions of ethics, and the resentment which many people feel towards such discussions: moral principles remain in their minds as floating abstractions, offering them a goal they cannot grasp and demanding that they reshape their souls in its image, thus leaving them with a burden of undefinable moral guilt.”
Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto

Philip K. Dick
“Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups... So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.”
Philip K. Dick

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If men are good, you don’t need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don’t dare have one. ”
Robert LeFevre
