The Gross National Debt

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


And there was a young man born in a valley. His elders told him nothing existed outside the valley, all was void and empty and to leave the valley meant sudden and certain death.

Their elders had told them the same thing. They saw no reason to leave the valley as it supplied all they wanted and needed.

The young boy, born of a curious mind, set about to find out the truth. And so he went up the mountain at the edge of the valley.

He peered over the mountain top and was immediately attacked by a mountain lion and eaten.

The people in the valley below sadly shook their heads and reminded each other that to leave the valley was certain death and the boy brought it on himself.

But in the instant before he died, the boy saw another valley similar to but different than the valley which he’d left.
