The competition is killing us.
I’ve long argued that there is no profit in peace. You can’t give it away. I’ve tried hard to figure a way to work the peace business profitably, but I’ve had no luck. Strength through peace is a tough sale. I’m not born yesterday...I’m aware of the issues. For one, peace does not scale up.
Fighting for market share is not peace. Nature is not peaceful. It’s dog eat dog out here. Strength through peace does not put Nature in a submission hold; she is doing her thing no matter what humanity does.
Strength is derived via cooperating with Nature, peacefully; in concert with Nature. Death is as unavoidable as rebirth. Coevoloution is simply reality, and constant. Reality evolves perpetually. Roll with it. You like MacArthur, will return, or perhaps more accurately never leave. Where to? Beyond reality? I’m quite sure none of us are going there, ever.
The problem with peace is that you can’t eat it. I’ve not worked out how not to starve to death, peacefully. I’m open for suggestions. People will not take starvation laying down, and neither will I. Victor Hugo never solved that one. This far up the food chain, one can easily forget how violent hunting and gathering; producing food is. I’ve gathered, hunted, and produced food. It’s a bloody mess, believe me. Just getting a parking space at Trader Joe’s can get you killed. I’ve been screamed at for playing my radio too loud in the parking lot of Trader Joe’s. It a war zone out there!
I’m not going to war marketing strength through peace. I’m wating and seeing. I know I’ve got the product, and it works for me, but there is just no money in it. I’m stronger, strong enough to peck out Raytheon5, and sell attempt to sell it. It’s not about peace, so it might sell. I’m flexible. I understand markets, and media...It’s grammar and spelling that I missed reading Tolkien in Mr. Fury’s sixth grade English class.
I don’t have to bleed to lead, there is blood all over Raytheon5. Im leaving sex out of the first draft. There’s lots of sex in Raytheon5, but I’m charging extra for it, like leather seats. You cannot run a MIC without sex, believe me. The ending of Raytheon5 will not happen without first including a Peruvian cross dressing homosexual running HQ on the west side of Asbury Park. Talk about diversity? It’s all in there, or could be in there. I’m not giving it away, or go to worry much at all about selling it. I’m not going to let a writing project ruin my inner peace, or sap my strength, at least not before it’s sold.
I’ve got plenty to do working out the peace problems, in the field, part time. It’s a conundrum, but what I do best is wait and see. I’m happier than I ever was, but I’m not going to force strength through peace on anyone; I don’t even have a business card.
