However, for all those that come after me just know Indivismus Maximus is going to be a contender, my child is rough, but can create world peace. We will just have to soften some of the edges. Time to progress not relapse back into Marxism. So good luck and may the best peace worker win. In the future I apologize now to my wife and grandchildren for being so one sided with Indi. Not so much my grandchildren as Indi can be taught while having fun at parks, zoo's, amusement parks, dancing or researching in Grandpa's garden and sitting on Grandpa's porch having a lemonade. To my future family I love you and I hope I do not annoy my grandchildren, I'll make it fun though and interesting.
Love you bubba's. Pap's been working on this for a long time.
