Jef your comment is right in line with my own thinking. This
cooperative framework that supports individual growth is a
corporation. Team up with others, specialize to whatever
degree you are comfortable, then work like mad to devour the
other guys' lunch. Of course he is struggling to devour
yours. But at the end of the day, the winning corporation wins,
and the consumer wins. The losing corporation, well, it is made
of individual consumers, so it wins in an indirect sort of
way. It's all about wealth creation as opposed to wealth
redistribution. What a system!
In modern times there is a new holy grail, far beyond
making the best trinkets for the least money. Today
we are standing on the threshold of a dream. On the
visible horizon is radical life extension, health improvement,
intelligence enhancement, wealth creation that boggles the
mind. May we all live to see it happen.
