10 Food for Thought “I think the future is the revolution that empowers every single human being on a custom basis. And I think it’s the next step for humanity because it’s necessary to move from the last stages of barbarism into a golden age of science and democracy. We’re not going to have science and democracy until each person is empowered to live their God-given potential and… that’s not going to happen by accident. It’s going to happen when we make it happen.” – Justin Dart
