One day, the Roman view of success may be less important than the Zen view of success, in investment and in entrepreneurship.
The Roman view being: conquer all, live by the power laws, and take no prisoners, only scalps.
The Zen view, that there is a world of abundance out there, and that competition can certainly be a prime characteristic of a market, but values lead and values win over money.

Rome was built. But Rome also burned.
Zen doesn’t burn. It’s everywhere, and is nothing and everything at the same time.
