A 3000-year-old matrix of politics, religion, and philosophy rules our world: It is a matrix of deception. It brings bleakness and loss to billions of hapless victims. Everyone caught within its web loses. But, now comes Pax Neo-Tech to release individuals from that ancient trap by weaving facts with honesty into sharply-pointed matrices. Those thorny weapons first puncture, then rip apart, and finally sweep away past-and-current deceptions. …Each who clean sweeps those deceptions from his or her life experiences ever-increasing flows of prosperity, health, and romance.
Defending free speech in the nineteenth century, the English historian and champion of liberty, Lord Acton, identified how individualistic ideas most vehemently opposed by the Establishment became the enduring ideas of the future. He points to the Greek-philosopher Socrates and then to the historical-secular Jesus. They were not political or religious leaders. They both were sublime teachers. Both advanced ideas of the individual over the Establishment. A threatened, mob-unleashing Establishment executed both men for impiety, though neither had harmed anyone nor infringed anyone’s natural rights.
The collectivist Establishment executed Socrates and Jesus for their individualistic, anti-establishment ideas. Today, however, Pax Neo-Tech flips their pointless/intangible delusions in imagined-or-ethereal realms into practical/tangible benefits in a real world here on planet Earth. ...Pax Neo-Tech works through Neo-Tech. But, how does Neo-Tech work?

well, it took till today (3 Aug 05) for this household to receive that
'Your so Special'-> letter/Invitation, w/ 22.9 cent bulk postage.
immediately i wondered ....just what data base, were you using to determine that 'I' was up-to-snuff, and deserved this chummy invite.
because i have no special talents, history, IQ, or $ making abilities.
lately, i've been finding errant/ lost/given-up golfballs around the complex where i live....maybe 3 a day, which i clean up and give to my son for his infrequent rounds of golf.
I was tempted to write the NTS about their faulty algorithim which 'wasted' the time, expense, postage...of sending me a personal invitation to join up.
i just figured that they could afford the mistake,
or else they could phone me up,
i'm not holding my breath...but i'm still accumulating stray golfballs.

However, it just annoyed me when the one user stated that I CANNOT be a Colonel at age 33. My father was a Brig. General at 37, after he recieved his PhD. And no, I am not the youngest Colonel, the younger is 32. What brings the figure up so high on the statistics you grabbed online was the factor of reserve members. Most officers go reserve after the typical six year commitment.

"ColLemke". I must take exception with your postings...not from research, but from PERSONAL experience. You see, I too was an officer...I too have received advanced degrees (Masters and Ph.D.)...and I do not recall getting that special "promotion" as a result of successful completion of either!
