Over the years, we’ve come across many bad ideas. Rap music, for instance. Or legal tender laws. But the real measurement of a bad idea is how much popular destruction it can bring.
It’s a real shame there’s no warning system, like an air raid siren, to tell people to take cover from the bad idea de jour. For a bad idea coupled with a good story will compel vast populations to ruin themselves. Once established, there’s no turning back. Bad ideas must run their natural course leaving destruction in their wake. Then they must run their course again, and again.

I don’t even know exactly when that saying got started in the British Colonies of the 17th century. But I do know it is true. We had colonies here close to starvation in a land of abundant wild animals all over the place. They simply did not know how to catch them. The Indian nations were nomads. They knew how to capture wild animals to eat. They were not farmers. The motivation for our early farmers to produce food was not enough. They did not know the country well enough to be successful at it. They had to change to become successful colonies. It is (Read More....)
