really liked it
bookshelves: philosophy-religion, fiction, improvement

Dynamic, and static forces of evolution for creatures and societies. Intellectuals are dynamic - bring back instruments to improve society. Without that purpose the dynamic state can be chaotic and not enhance the conservative/static elements of society. Americans are broken into two psyches. The Europeans need for form, purpose, order, and hierarchy versus the elemental, freedom, and open space qualities that are adapted primarily from the American Indian. Static holds the learned body of knowledge/quality while dynamic explores and and can improve quality. If something does not have quality it is created, used, or employed. Morality does not have control of quality. Good and bad is based on the need and purpose of the group that defines and uses it.
