    If you've found yourself in a sea of people who don't agree with you, you'll know the "publication" duty is not always easy. It is a duty to yourself and your fellow man none the less.

    A world based on deception can only be propped up by those that deceive themselves. The truth is dangerous and its publication is a form of war.

    Within the three quotes today, Forbidden writings, withheld from publication, were published, bringing about the revolution in the Americas and our State of Independence. Mathematics give way for forms to appear. Truth, the application of knowledge coupled with numerical skill bring to light hidden understanding. Volumes have been written. Most things of great value are always hidden in plain sight. To seek a peaceful resolve, when knowledge used, is the key to bolstering patriotism, must be tempered with compassion, for those who know not, but seek to understand. Those that care not are generally enemies to themselves or others. Truth makes peace or starts wars, the ignorance of man is well used when tyranny reigns.

    The perceived truth sought by the likes of Marx, Hitler, Stalin and Mao ended in other that nobility. The publication of all socialism's failures is a duty rejected by the world's contemporary media and criminal malefactors such as theocratic seminaries (government schools) text book publicists.
