Thinking? isn't that an oxymoron?

Justin, Elkland

A consensus among thinking men often leads to polarization of the masses. There is nothing wrong with this; it is the natural order of things.

100,000 people in Chicago's Lincoln Park demonstrated this very well..."yes we can yes we can yes we can...."

Valerie Nixon, Richmond

This, apparently, is what is happening, today. I believe it is caused, primarily, by a controlled News Media. ( Big Brother is also attempting to censor the Internet, our main free source). There are many issues, - a current big one is Health Freedom. We must get involved & protect our Liberties - as well as retrieving ones we have lost.

A skeptic is one who questions even his own thinking.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

To what extent is the dignity of the individuality of the individual actually honored, within the family or society.

Historically, a signal hindrance to human progress has been the pride and fear based cultural premium that has been placed on conformity, in most settings.

As George Orwell expressed it:

" The more people chant about their freedom and how free they are, the more loudly I hear their chains rattling."

Ultimately, Freedom is a state of Mind.
