A week ago I made a comment that might have sounded like a
nonsequitur: "Life of Brian" should be required viewing for every
extropian. Of course there is the usual Monte Python silliness,
but Brian's speech he made to the crowd as he was urging them
to fuck off [which they would not do] was actually quite stirring
and a very good encapsulation of the attitude many of us have
toward the follower personality. Theres a lot of dynamic optimism
to be found in that speech. spike
