    Read Boyd’s Biography, http://www.amazon.com/Boyd-Fighter-Pilot-Who-Changed/dp/0316796883/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1314837965&sr=1-1

    He had a first class mind and went way beyond anything his minders and even most of his erstwhile “followers” could understand. A founding figure in emergent system complexity theory, and a tragic figure whose life was atrophied by his allegiance to a machine and accidents of upbringing and culture he was unable to outgrow.

    His piece: Destruction & Creation is one of the documents of the Twentieth Century! http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.goalsys.com%2Fbooks%2Fdocuments%2FDESTRUCTION_AND_CREATION.pdf&rct=j&q=john%20boyd%20destruction%20and%20creation&ei=2dZeToioBZPKsQKE35E4&usg=AFQjCNGJilbfDumz68x7_6kYCx9S6QQ6lw&sig2=nycB0lUkTLUY3962aF1j9A&cad=rja

    If Heidegger is “responsible” for Hitler, then maybe Boyd is “responsible” for Cheney & Rummey. They never had a clue as to the implications of his work, and he would have OODA Looped the shit of them!
