                         A Worldview in 72 Phrases                      

After outlining my worldview, and writing well over 200 pages on the subject matter, It occurred to me that I could convey much of the same set of ideas using a set of short phrases drawn from the effort.

While it turned out to be 72 phrases, not a simple few, I believe these phrases do the job. Many of the phrases are mere introductions to quite complex subjects that ordinarily would take extensive development to do them justice; such development I will reserve for my full worldview, and will use the phrases as placeholders for the ultimate treatment. An amusing thought occurred to me: this list treats much of what President Trump faces and appears to agree with.
