“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms”

There should be no such thing as a “non-profit”.  Profits are the “traffic signals” of the “invisible hand” of a truly free market.

NO MARGIN = NO MISSION.
