Wisdom to Joy
In any compromise between good and evil, only evil can profit.
When good people fail to act, evil triumphs.
Appearances can be deceiving. A small body may harbour a great soul, and a great position may harbour a young soul.
People without courage live on their knees.
Commerce and spirituality, in themselves, are mutually exclusive. Commerce can be honest and without exploitation.
Moderation in the pursuit of justice is not virtuous.
The only thing that is truly free is bondage. A benefit for an obligation, and an obligation for a benefit. Protection for allegiance, and allegiance for protection.
The only solution to violent crime in society is fear—criminals' fear of the intended victims.
Deserve something first; desire it afterwards.
Gross negligence is equivalent to intentional wrong.
If you are in debt, somebody owns a part of you.

Joy is not in things, it is in us.
Life, liberty, and property do not exist because of laws; they existed first, and laws were created afterwards.

What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for others?
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group in a society, they create laws that authorize it and a moral code that glorifies it.
Politicians try to remedy evil by increasing the very thing that caused the evil in the first place: legal plunder.

The content of these presentations has been garnered through observation, contemplation, hopefully insight, and, most importantly, experience. Ideas and assertions are simply presented for consideration. The effort is not to prove or convince, but rather to present ideas for one’s own thought, research, innate common sense, and experience.
References are included only if information is specific and may not be generally known. No offense whatsoever is taken at any disagreement or counter-assertion. Many disagreements are due to semantics. Take whatever is useful and ignore the rest. If something fits and is useful, wonderful!

Deep gratitude is expressed to developers and everyone who has assisted in making open-source software available to all. These presentations have been made possible by LibreOffice (Open Office), Audacity, SimpleScreenRecorder, RecordMyDesktop, Glimpse, Gimp, Inkscape, ImageMagick, Pitivi, ffmpeg, OpenClipart, PublicDomainVectors, and Linux. Appreciation is also expressed to FreeThesaurus.com. In addition, gratitude is expressed to all the wonderful artists who have made their work available, for pictures speak to the soul. Gratitude is also expressed to people who have contributed comments that have helped to improve these presentations, and for the expert advice of Sweetwater, which made possible the quality of these recordings and the continued sanity of the editor.

The brilliant spectrum in the banner is the closest representation of the absolute joy of a realm of which I have memory since childhood. No one owns the spectrum. It is used here because of its joy.
In case it seems that considerable work occurred to make these multi-media presentations, it is absolutely nothing compared to what was required to acquire the content.
