is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist.
We are collaborators in creation."

    Mike and Archer are limited to their propaganda and mantras.

    ..laughs.. Anonymous, you're certainly on one today -- any jabs for me while you're at it? Archer hadn't even posted on this quote, and Mike didn't even say anything when merely posting 5 stars. You going to give your name, or are you going to cower behind the cloud of anonymity? You could at least make up a name for yourself, like "Casper, from nothingworthsayingville" or something of this nature. If "Mike and Archer are limited to their propaganda and mantras," are you going to at least give us a dissenting opinion so that we may debate the issue? Merely accusing people of being limited to "propaganda and mantras" is rather childish without expressing an opposing view at least once. As per the quote, I agree; this is the foundation of thought wherein our own Declaration of Independence and most civil disobedient protesters take their actions from.

    Practically, this sounds like very poor advice. Would you want your teenage child following this advice when they're driving? Learn to know your abilities and stay within them. At the same time you can work to expand your abilities so you can achieve more when you have the skills to do so.

    Anonymous, you must be a liberal, nothing to say on any issue, just put-downs of those who can think for themselves. As much as Waffler and I disagree and jab at each other, its all in good fun and, he at least gives reasons for his opinions.

    I have no problem with this except when power is exercised without regard for other people's property and rights. Yes, dare to dream, but when someone else's dream requires my compliance then they have gone too far. That's my propaganda for today. ;-) As for mantras, let's see... how about "LIve Free or Die" -- I always liked that one.

    Logan be assured that if some one wrote passages from the constitution in here and did not credit the passages, Anonymous would consider it propaganda.

    We are all collaborators in creation, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, etc, etc. and he knew that well...
