Is The American Dream Killing You?

Not me, it isn't. Then again, the American Dream, to me, is about the freedom to pursue things I love. It's not about material wealth, per se. And, to the extent it is about wealth, it's far more about the process of creating it than actually having it. Anyway, the guy who's been pretty much my best friend since we met as Navy officers in 1988 is just on the verge of having his second book published. During the year he was writing it, which ended nearly a year ago already, we exchanged hundreds of emails, all of them addressing serious aspects of philosophy, politics, and science. He makes some interesting points, but I don't think he's an individualist. I'll wait to read his final word on it. His first book was an entertaining read. I recommend it.

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2022, contains over 5,000 posts.
