Quotes from Daniel's Works
"It can happen that circumstances may shatter a culture's vision of its place in the scheme of things, may render its mythology meaningless, may strangle its song. When this happens (and it's happened many times), things fall apart in this culture. Order and purpose are replaced by chaos and bewilderment. People lose the will to live, become listless, become violent, become suicidal, and take to drink, drugs, and crime. The matrix that once held all in place is now shattered, and laws, customs, and institutions fall into disuse and disrespect, especially among the young, who see that even their elders can no longer make sense of them. If you'd like to study some peoples who have been destroyed in this way, there's no shortage of sites to visit in the United States, Africa, South America, New Guinea, Australia--wherever, in fact, aboriginal peoples have been crushed under the wheels of our cultural juggernaut.
"Or you can just stay at home. "

We can't afford to wait for David to finish off Goliath, because obviously David never finishes off Goliath. The two of them have been standing there toe to toe for thousands of years--and they'll still be standing there a thousand years from now.
We don't need to defeat Goliath. We need to change the way he thinks.
