RIP Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

Christopher Eric Hitchens:

He was not without his faults, but he was one of the most outspoken critical thinkers of our times!

Troops in Texas… and they’re CHINESE!

A very thought provoking video! Too bad that he is not the front-runner of the GOP pool… I guess he would never have the corporate sponsorship needed to pull off an election win… but then again, this too is a campaign promise…

Curiosity is your Duty

Whether or not we think about it, our decisions affect more than just ourselves. Depending on who we are and what it is that we do, the effects can be big or small. One of the biggest decisions most of us make on a daily basis is whether or not we will ‘care’. To think that we are not obligated to do something is perhaps our biggest misplaced belief. Perhaps the pressure that surrounds ‘acting’ is that we cannot think small, somehow, over time, an expectation has developed that when we think, we must think big, and when we act, our actions should be on a large scale. This could not be further from the truth – being curious about everyday ‘facts’ is a great start, and informing yourself the best action!

Start out simple, be it the source of what you eat or what you know – ask a simple question a day, and make it a goal to find that one answer. Chances are, your questions today will lead to your question for tomorrow. If I were god, ignorance would have been a sin, and curiosity the biggest virtue!
