Bio: Author / Internet User / Poetic Visionary (Self Appointed)

Area of Expertise: Author/Editor/Journalist

Topic: General, Overarching Remarks

Headline: The Worth of an Individual

Nutshell: With the growth potential inherent in the modern age of technology, the democratic dream, the worth of the individual, is becoming ever greater. Think about just how easy it has become for a single individual to destroy the world.

Vision: Where once the taking of the world required enormous armies and dedicated warriors, the technology and information available today make it a simple matter for a single individual to achieve the same goal.

To put it shortly, we no longer need dedicated warriors to change the world, just dedicated madmen.
