As we gather to celebrate a host of new ideas that will undoubtedly prove to be of great benefit to our society, we must not forget that over the centuries there have been ideas that have not served mankind well. These ideas have ranged from the downright evil, to the poorly thought-out, and to the amusingly stupid.

This presentation offers a solution—one that caring, intelligent, and serious-minded individuals will find acceptable whatever their political or philosophical persuasions.

A former long-time resident of Victoria, his current roaming territory is the intellectually-barren veldt of the Comox Valley. He charges down to Victoria from time to time to feed on its lush intellectual greenery.
