"It is impossible for ideas to compete in the marketplace if no forum for

      1984, Brave New World, the King James Bible and the American Constitution, were
      all written by well educated old Englishmen who merely wanted people to THINK!
       Little events ~ the Magna Carta, Freedom of Speech, Abolition of Slavery, invention
       of electricity, individual property rights, industrial revolution, antibiotics, jet engines,
       freedom of religion, railways, steam engines, postage stamps, police forces, theory
       of evolution, umbrellas, Viagra, flush toilets, refrigerators, seed drills, television, the
       English language, radar, television, machine guns, stainless steel & steam engines
       battle tanks, vacuum cleaners, submarines, tin cans, electric motors, rubber bands
       internal combustion engines,
Etc. Etc., were all invented by old English gentlemen.

All that I can hope for is that some people may
think that I am a well educated old Englishman


   I will offer a hypothesis - you prove me wrong or send me a message of congratulation.
