Once upon a time (sorry) people would get together and discuss their thoughts, dreams and ideas. Some were writers like Tolkien and CS Lewis or Mary Shelley and Lord Byron. Others were philosophers or scientists; the Ben Franklins and Henry Fords did not live in a vacuum.
Today we may not gather at the pub or coffee-house but we do gather on the web. However, for as advanced as the technology has become there is far too little intellectual interaction.
The media is no help – everything they report is reduced to a sound bite to allow time for commercials. When they do have discussions they have all the decorum of a kindergarten class that’s run short of graham crackers.
I have more faith in human nature than that. This blog is my attempt to start the exchange of ideas in an intelligent manner. It is intended to promote thinking, discussing, satirizing and just having fun.
