 it for each seeks it only for his own private benefit and gratification,
 without giving one thought to others. >>

Wow.  I believe this is the root not only of problems in the TS, but of too
many problems in America.  Deep stuff.  I contemplated such questions recently
while visiting Monticello, slaveholder and American hero Thomas Jefferson's
home.  Paradoxes abound.  Where is the grandeur of our people, and where have
the beautiful visions gone?
