The middle way.

My theme or intention might be defined as follows: Eugene is a symbol of America, of a land in which even those descended from the passengers of the Mayflower are immigrants. All immigrants search for security. In this land, security is the eternal and evanescent goal. But in this search for security there is a loss of humility. Only the dead and God have security. And the Gods will see you dead if you search for it. The old Greek sin is the sin of Pride--Man attempting to be Godlike. It is our human destiny to be insecure--we cannot go against our destiny. This is fundamentally irreligious. It is a blasphemy. It goes with a lack of values. [TRUNCATED]
