Things to Think About

The next three weeks, more or less, promise opportunities for new experiences; diversity of thought, perspectives, and attitude. If I am the man I hope I am, I will absorb disparate viewpoints, treating them as the beacons of wisdom they might become. My appreciation for open-mindedness is anathema to some people, especially people running for President of the United States. And adherents of some of those people. As much as I value tolerance and broad-minded approachability, I find myself incapable of finding value and decency in people who assign value to others on the basis of units of self-serving productivity.

I may be naive; but I think there’s a huge and unappealing difference between European and American definitions of morality and values. I suppose the only way to explore that is to…well…explore that.

I’m not sure whether I’ll be posting here for a while. I hope to, but I cannot predict the availability of technological capacity, nor of intellectual capital.
