The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane. – Marcus Aurelius
During my tenure as a blogger, I never felt more compelled to share my thoughts on these uncertain times in as direct form as I do now. In the past, satire was the vehicle I’d share ideas akin to my thinking. But never did I explicitly shared my direct thoughts.
In today’s social and geopolitical landscape, it’s important to not only share our thoughts and opinions but to ground what we chose to share in reality. What we don’t need is to harangue and lambast each other with a vapid self-righteousness or to promulgate more tired invectives and divisive rhetoric, or finally to debate over the validity of alternative facts.
To that end, I hope this blog can be a place for open discussion and not irrational name-calling, and character assassination when we find ourself on opposing sides of an argument. That being said the topics discussed here will cover a range of topics and could benefit from your thoughts and words.
