Multiplying Ideas

"If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple... But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
- George Bernard Shaw

Captain Lambert,

There is no doubt that, GBS, as he was known, had a good mind for writing, scripting, and other artful things. But like many folks he had opinions about the worlds people, and felt that everyone should be equal to everyone else. In this United States we fought the ideas of Socialism/Communism for more than 4 decades, which was the philosophy of GBS. We, in my opinion, could use less plays and theatrical honors, and more self esteem through hard work, honest labor and standing on the principles handed down by our founders. These are the things that made this country great but these ideals and values are slowly being eroded by the Socialist/Communist philosophy.

Very Respectfully,
