My Real-World Model:

o        Cool quotes:

o        Below: Links to interesting alternative information and views about threats to the two things I most cherish - freedom and life.

o        Disclaimer: I definitely do not share (nor does my employer of course) all the opinions expressed in these sites - for if I did my knowledge base would be inconsistent ;)
I just find some of them useful to bring out-of-the box insights orthogonal to the one-dimensional thought of most mainstream media ...
