The day I can conclude that education and school have largely become compatible... That will be the day. ;)

That's a pretty noble aspiration. What does being a renaissance man mean to you?

Hmm, to define it, offhand? I suppose I'd, without any intended pretense whatsoever, define being a renaissance man as becoming intimately acquainted, almost as with the tempo or spirit of, and required for, a number of different subject areas of inquiry and investigation.

Fairly difficult to achieve, but rewarding, given its intellectual consummation, as a prerequisite and, if successfully realized, a most wonderful prerogative.

The day I stop drinking... that'll be the day.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
