I think the monotheistic religions, not just the Christians, need, as a product of their own insecurities, to destroy or coopt all that was before in the way of spiritual thinking. Small wonder that those selfsame religions, particulary the Christians, now experience the backlash that they do. To me...

Shit. Walking home from work Friday, I pass an Isuzu box truck, and think to myself how much stuff I could get to the playa with that thing, and how efficient it'd be doing it. Then I remembered, I'm not doing BM anymore.

I certainly never meant that Chimp had to talk about home problems, it's just another option.

A forgiving assessment of this would be quibbling. Commerce within the fence is trivial. I disagree. Commerce within the fence is literally at the center of BRC, and the symbolic value of that should not be underestimated.
