WMail: The Working Minds Newsletter

Each issue of the free monthly WMail philosophy newsletter {ezine}
included excerpts from 'Working Minds: A Philosophy of Empowerment'
or essays based on the Working Minds philosophy, stimulating quotes, and
practical actions that readers can take toward the Fulfillment of Mankind's Potential...

WMail ezine Issue #72 of November 2007 was the Farewell Issue . . . .

        This 'WMail' newsletter was begun in June of 2000, intended to be sent out every month or so, via email only, with each issue containing quotations, an excerpt from the book "Working Minds: A Philosophy of Empowerment" or an essay by myself or an article by another author, and various and sundry philosophical news-bits.

        While topics of WMail range widely, they are based on the innovative and practical 'Working Minds' Philosophy of Empowerment which is based partly on ideas of Ayn Rand, Albert Camus, Eric Berne, C. Wright Mills, Thorstein Veblen, Carlos Castaρeda and others, plus a little quantum physics and a host of original thought. The content is designed to enroll the reader into individual participation in the Fulfillment of Mankind's Potential.

        The WMail ezine ended with Issue #72 in October 2007.

The mission of the Working Minds Philosophy and the websites will continue by posting
quotations, news factoids & essays on the Dateline Chamesa weblog ...

The Working Minds Philosophy of Empowerment defines strategies and techniques with which you will be able to handle successfully anything that Life brings your way.

The development of your Working Mind is entirely your Responsibility – at all times. How far you go in developing your Working Mind is a function of your Commitment to being a Self, an Individual who IS Responsible.

That – and only that – Commitment to being Responsible for being an Individual, in the face of ceaseless pressure to revert to subjugation by the internal False Mind and by the external Culture-Structure, is the necessary Context for the fulfillment of your existential potential.

The development by your Self, within your Self of your latent Working Mind is crucial and necessary for the survival of the human species.
Without you, Mankind is lost. With your Working Mind developed and engaged, the Culture-Structure becomes irrelevant.
