Humanity out there, beyond security bubble of our comfortable communities. Is not what we're led to believe by those whose careers, wealth or power is based on dependency. There's real talent out there, powerful untapped human potential. To unlock this untapped human capacity, trillions in new wealth, requires a revisioning of the value of the individual. Unconventional Investing is just this.

"It’s not enough to read a book or an economic report, to watch the news or in any other way obtain information about the world out there. To truly know it, one must actually live it directly. And not as some experiment, where you temporarily give up your comforts. Not simply as a thought experiment in comforts of your life. No. You must lose everything, have nothing, struggle your way to something just the same as everyone else. And yes, have that taken from you also. Before you can truly know what life outside in the very real world, for the far greater number of people, is like. More importantly, it is only way to know how much incredible talent and drive is out there. With most of this going so tragically unrecognized, undeveloped and unbenefited from." -From E.M.'s upcoming novel As Rome Burns
