Don t we all aspire to do deeds that will give them a better life?We live in a time as Austrian-American economist Joseph Schumpeter noted of “creative destruction” a.k.a. the “gale.” Although his work in the 1950 s addressed economics the underlying concept is that one needs to tear down existing institutions in order to build new and better ones.

Nick and Barbara of sv Val

Nick and Barbara were dropped off on Reboot by the NSW Marine Police last night. We had some adult beverages and a good pasta dinner. They then got the first decent sleep in several days….Their story has gone global. They received telephone calls from Ireland and India asking for a statement.
