So, you want to discuss Costs?
564 American Soldiers Dead in Iraq.
~10,000 wounded, many Terribly.
~Tens or thousands of Iraqi Soldiers, and Civilians,
I don't know how many Soldiers and Civilians
Slaughtered in Afghanistan and Chechnya.
The World Trade Center ~3500 Lives Lost.
The Pentagon ~hundreds(?) of Lives Lost.
The Jetliner in Pennsylvania ~100+ Lives Lost.
=All= of their Families, 'just' as Terribly 'wounded'.
And everywhere, it's going on, still.
The Spain Bombings, Revulsing a whole Society.
'routine' Bombings in Iraq.
Bitterness, between the U. S. and Europe, where
there was, only 18 'months' ago, Commity.
National Treasures, all around the World, going
to Waste, instead of the Welfare of Humanity.
Economies, all around the World, Stagnant, except
in Those Nations whose Leaderships had the Good-
Sense to Stand-Firmly in-Peace.
And Thousands of more Lives will be Lost, or left
Precipitated by Thoughtlessness.
Abandoning of Oaths of Office.
Abandoning The Constitution of The United States of America.
And, all over the World, TD E/I(up),
spreading like some Sinister 'disease'
amongst whole Populations.
Including, Reversion in Russia.
The Cold War being Launched Anew.
'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization,
left uncomprehended all of this.
The Costs are Unimaginally-Great, and
will continue to Accrue across Generations.
All be-cause a Gift of Understanding was
The Course of Freedom was, literally, Free
of all Costs, other than folks =just= Doing
what it is they Profess to 'do'.
Wheigh the five-hours it takes to work-through
NDT's Fundamentals, against the Costs of 'mov-
ing away from' those five hours.
