We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

If you ask people why diversity is good, sometimes they point to genetics or ecology.
Those systems DO get strength through diversity, but that strength comes from the life or death struggle. Species that successfully adapt and outperform other species survive, even at the loss of the other species. Genes that are successful replace the less successful genes in the pool.
Diversity in nature is struggle and death for most.
