Look down, and see the beggars at your feet
Look down and show some mercy if you can
Look down and see the sweepings of the streets
Look down, look down, upon your fellow man!
Man the barricades! Occupy!
Bold. Ambitious. Audacious. A little cheeky. That's what I was thinking when I named this blog Manifest Destiny (and considered using the same name for a consulting practice). I'm not mellowing out, but I'm having second thoughts. "Crush Your Enemies" is a fun strategy for a board game, but I'm not sure I want to associate with it as a foreign policy, and it's not a very rewarding personal philosophy either -- even if you get good at it.
