santiago's zen calligraphy

Commerce diminishes the spirit, both of patriotism and military defense. And history sufficiently informs us,
that the bravest achievements were always accomplished in the non-age of a nation.... The more men have to
lose, the less willing are they to venture. The rich are in general slaves to fear, and submit to courtly power with the
trembling duplicity of a spaniel.
-Thomas Paine
