    There's something called the American dream that doesn't mind trotting itself over anything in its way. What exactly is this dream that has been used to justify everything that is pictured in this diary and worse? What happens when the pursuit of some people's happiness demands the slaughter of thousands upon thousands? My guess is that the mission statement is flawed.

    Freedom at the expense of taking others' freedom is no way to live. Competition, which is nothing but small scale war, is not a noble mechanism. That's what I got from watching Sesame Street, anyway. Deep down inside we all know that cooperation is what is needed. Equality through cooperation!
