My Creed (abridged) - Dean Alfange

This quote was added by nautiusmaximus
I seek to develop whatever talents God gave me - not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any earthly master nor bend to any threat.

This is fine for him, but would he impose the same creed on his wife? What about his children? His elderly neighbor? If you want no earthly masters, don't depend on anyone. If you want danger and challenge, go live in the wilderness. Civilization is for stability.
