So, how do you go about changing that? How do you change America when so many things have gone wrong? Freedom is guaranteed and protected absolutely, but that ain't going to change it. It's religion, sacred stuff. They'll die before they try to change it. They'll die fighting for it. How are you going to do that? How are you going to change that situation? It's going to take a long time to inspire even your children. In other words, you absolutely have to inspire generations on and on and on unendingly, until it happens. Until the change that we can see and feel happens, that we can guarantee it ourselves and say, 'Yes, this is the change. This is the change that will stay.' You have to start with something. You have to start somewhere. It's something kind of silly. I have been doing stuff and going into China now. And you try to think about, 'Oh, I need to do something, I need to make it.' It's silly. It's insane. But if I have to do this on my own, hey, stuff costs. How's that? That's why I try to do my best to not cross that line. There are opportunities that, yes, I know I'm going to get more return on this stuff if I take that opportunity, but I can't. Why? For me, it's just because of my name. That's about it, because I don't want to be an idiot.

But you have to start somewhere and you have to try to do those kinds of stuff. And your children need that kind of stuff. The more we have the better. Multimedia is very, very important. Why? Because if you have to sell our 'product,' you are going to have to master your communication capability. Things are out there for a reason. Things are given to us for a reason. That timing is here for a reason. That's the first step, obvious step. Everybody is trying to take that.

Look at how Fox [Broadcasting Company] has succeeded in America. It has pretty much taken over every level in such a short period of time. The trend was in the way money was invested, much less than the way we would do it. When you look at Fox News, it is literally run by a few character driven shows, and they cycle it three times a day. That's about it. And they have a little live stuff in the morning and in the mid afternoon.

Everything else is just a few character-driven shows. The format is very simple. "Your World with Neil Cavuto," "The O'Reilly Factor," "The Sean Hannity Show," and "Brad of Banaster." It's a few shows, a few character-driven shows, and they pretty much take on the world, and they influence so many people. Just one single person did all that. His radio show has a few points measuring his audience. Every point is like a million. People religiously turn his show on every day and listen to him just blab for four hours long.

I was just watching the news the other day. I see some guy who made money on fast food and donated 250 or 300 million dollars or something to help develop a Catholic town because he's Catholic. A lot of people are giving their money. There is another guy who died and gave billions to charity. Well, they are not giving it to us, right? And they're doing that. They're trying to, in a sense, become more and more established and showcase their lifestyle, their tradition, their ritual, their religion.

Do you want to move to Cheongpyeong now? That's funny, the story behind that stuff. Anyway, at least your children can help, as you guys are getting too old. But you know, you are not dead yet, right? You are going to die fighting, right? You will go out until your last breath, right? All right. For people who are actually going to make the difference, I would rather bet on the children. We'll die together. But if there's going to be change made, I rather bet on your children.

All those activities that we used to do, I think if we can afford it, of course, it should be continued because it's important. Science, medicine, and engineering committee has to be brought together. And it's very different. You can't really try to be intellectuals unless you can have a discourse with them and start at least. And create a much more serious, much more meaningful, much more useful foundation based on those committees. It is necessary to help what we want to achieve. What was the last year that ICUS international Conference on the Unity of the Sciences] was held? Anyway, long time ago. There's a lot of stuff that's important because you need to communicate. You persuade people through communication. You need to have those bases formed. That's very important especially in democracy and for society. And [President] Bush speaks about justice through democracy, that kind of stuff. Some people fervently believe in this stuff. So be it. All those things, we should take care of and we should nurture them, even if it's just an idea. It changes.

You can't just sit around idle. Those things are important. Fundamental things are important. And we have to master those fundamentals before we try to think about anything else. Without that, it is absolutely not going to happen. I would rather believe in aliens. Wouldn't that be great if some flying saucer lands on the White House lawn and says, "Hey, believe in Reverend Moon—otherwise we are going to laser you." We can change the world just like that. I bet a million dollars on that one. So, we should invest in ourselves because it's important. The fundamental things are important. We should encourage not just ourselves but our community. We need to act together as a grassroots movement too. Certain things are important and certain people, the powers that be, they need to know that' Then anything's possible after trying.

Life is short, you know. It's about finding something in life. That's about it in this sorry life. It's about making the right choices and finding something—a value, an eternal value. That's life. Because only here, you make choices that can alter your life. This or that. Because think about it—we believe in spirit, mind, and body. Fate, faith, and fact. Control it. Know what that is. Make the right decision, right choices. Know how to control it. That's the best you can do.

It's not what you want that keeps your livelihood. That's just livelihood stuff. Ultimately, in the end, that is the question you must answer on your own. In your life, in yourselves, in your idiosyncrasy. Find it. That is your purpose. That's our job. Good luck. It'lI take your life. It'll take a lifetime. It won't end. This quest will never end. Why? Because you want more. Trust me.

Okay, take care of yourselves. I'll see you next week.
