The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt
"An excellent book. A little too detailed at times in the science of moral psychology for a layperson like me, but I learned a lot and found it fascinating and engaging on the whole. It's an excellent read for understanding the intense feelings tha..." Read more of this review »

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., A Man Without a Country

Isaac Asimov
“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'
Isaac Asimov

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Frederik Pohl
“A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam.”
Frederik Pohl

Isaac Asimov
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
Isaac Asimov
