    Nice! Tweeted and highly recommended, as is the original essay.
    "When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system's game. The establishment will irritate you - pull your beard, flick your face - to make you fight, because once they've got you violent then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don't know how to handle is non-violence and humor. "

    This essay has been a great influence on me since I first read it over 40 years ago and this was a very nice application of the original.This specialization and melding of various skills has created enormous wealth.

    And yet there are still some who think specialization is for insects.

    They've got some supporting "commentary" videos, too. Good stuff. Hope they do more.
