A bold claim. I disagree. I could name any number of
more-philosophically-untenable concepts.
For instance, the notion that if you give me everything you have, I'll make
you happy.
For instance, the notion that the world would be a better place if the
human race were exterminated.

Now, that said, it's nonetheless true that waiting for the bus is a bad
idea if you turn out to be the bus driver.

I recommend the above URL for anyone on this list. I first investigated the
Power that is ZON about 5 years ago. I laughed 'til my guts nearly bled
when I realized what they'd done...



...it's Randism with a candy pseudo-mystery-cult woo-woo coating. Clever,
fun, funny and worth examining. But, as with Objectivism 1.00, not to be
swallowed whole without careful consideration. And if you've already
examined Rand, this is just her with a peculiar Newage-looking paint job.

Danny, if you're out there--you could do worse than to check it out.
