Hello! This is my copy of a work done many years ago on the early internet days by mareev (at) well (dot) com.
I've had it posted here for many years as well, as I believe that certain themes carry on throughout history, and
documents such as this one should be studied carefully in order to bear witness to, and realize the extent to which
these themes continue into the present day, and how they have influenced and created the world conditions in
which we presently find ourselves.

Be the change you want to see!

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing. . .
It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government. . . 
God forbid that we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. . .
