To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. (BMFuller)
This wiki (as with all wikis) is always a work-in-progress. It has migrated from re-configure.org/wiki "MediaWiki" became a cumbersome time-suck due to spammers and bots.
Resources are added every week as well as on-going re-organization.

The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.
