[Sorry to intervene, but this is quite a strong statement, and I'm tempted
to learn where your motivation comes from. It seems you have an awful lot of
energy and desire to change things - even after quite a few years of being
around, as I infer from your message. I wonder how you manage to hold on to
that energy? Also, note that I'm not saying your energy is good or bad, it
may be either - Martin Luther King Jr had this kind of energy and it was
good, but Hitler had it as well and it was bad.]
