I believe ultimately the day will come when we discover that we are the ones we've been waiting for.
I believe our inherent tendency to seek mentors is simply carried over from our childhood dependency for direction, or rather that's why it comes so naturally for us. Unfortunately many of those who like to serve that need do so for the control and power it provides, a breeding ground for perversion.
What I love about the internet is that it's changing all that, slowly but surely. It does so by placing everyone on a level playing field where we are all both mentors and students at the same time.
If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
