    Death, and how it influences people

    When threatened with death, the automatic thing that comes to mind is self preservation. However, think about what you would lose. Anyway, the point is that if you kill a man off the battlefield, you're a murderer, but kill a man on it and you're a big hero...

    ambition- good or bad?

    Ambition is one of the human characteristics that leads us to war, just as it could as easily lead us to progress in a competitive market, creating jobs and a good cash flow. Everything has 2 sides. So, if you're for it, you support the aggression it creates, but if you're against it, you're...

    Good to be here

    Good to be here. My great grandfather was a 3 degree master mason, but no one in my family till' me has joined the masons again. (I think I still have his registration papers here from the early 1900's...) Anyway, it feels good to know there are others out there. Peace, brothers.
