It’s all out there. The truth of our history is
waiting to be learned.
The ways of the world are discoverable, but the problem is that
each of us is born ignorant. We can only fight against the

power structure stays in place because it hides. It relies on the
limited lifetimes of individual humans as a primary defense. It
