SAPERE AUDE

It is a challenge to find people who think. Search in vain for the few in most of the academic world, the political world, the professional world, the corporate world, the religious world, and even in the artistic world.  To win admission to the Academy requires good marks, and to obtain good marks involves catering to the biases of the anointed, and then living out the compromises of institutional life, not all that different from the much reviled Church.  To say as much out loud invites excommunication as a “repugnant cultural other” The same holds true for every form of human endeavour save for the journey of a hermit.   Sapere Aude!

 

Are those who dare to think condemned to solitude?   Cogito ergo sum.
