Instead of Illusion

“When I ponder the Big Questions, I strive to preserve the separation of reason and emotion. Or, if you prefer, the separation of thinking and wishful thinking. The world is full of pretty lies and ugly truths — and we have a duty to spurn the lies and embrace the truths. Even if the truth hurts, or makes us unpopular. I know that people find solace in their ideological dogmas. I want to take their dogmas away from them nonetheless.” (05/09/23)
