Materials

I have been following this since the inception, when you first hatched the idea, Daniel. I understand that it takes a while to produce supplemental materials (or even the primary ones), so you started building the audience right away. (Do what you can do today...) Anyhow, I think the next step is to...

Re: The Laws of Human Nature

I find his books enlightening and timeless. Probably why he uses examples from the historical record, to show that they are timeless principles.

Re: How do you prevent an ideological system from being hijacked or misunderstood?
