“I'm convinced that most men don't know what they believe, rather, they only know what they wish to believe. How many people blame God for man's atrocities, but wouldn't dream of imprisoning a mother for her son's crime?”

“When I close my eyes, I can see the world of my dream clear as day - a world where there is no man, there is no woman, there is no queer, there is only love - a world where there is no white, there is no color, there is only love - a world where there is no believer, there is no nonbeliever, there is only love - a world where there is no leader, there is no follower, there is only love. This is the civilization that we must build - a civilization that has conquered its animal nature rather being conquered by it - a civilization that is human at heart, human at thought, and human in action.”
Abhijit Naskar, Solo Standing on Guard: Life Before Law

“This is what nationalism does. It blinds you to rational arguments that may threaten the integrity of your nation's image, just like fundamentalism blinds you to rational arguments that may threaten the integrity of your religion's image. It's a smoke screen created by the mind and sustained by the mind by means of sentiments which are mostly biases in action, set in motion to protect your barbaric allegiance to your little tribe.”
Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

“Sonnet of Progress

Where the nation ends,
There the world begins.
Where the self fades,
There community begins.
Where luxury withers,
There equality begins.
Where biases shrink,
There truth begins.
Where pride dies,
There growth begins.
Where rigidity ends,
There life begins.
Such true life is forever revered.
Prejudice conquered is world conquered.”

David Horowitz
“I have said publicly (and repeatedly) that “bias” is not an issue, that every individual has a “bias” and professors have a right to express theirs in their classrooms so long as they do so in a professional manner, and in accordance with the principles of academic freedom.What faculty may not do is to impose their bias on students through coercive grading, or by failing to provide them with critical reading materials, or by presenting their personal prejudices as established wisdom.”
David Horowitz, Indoctrination U: The Left's War Against Academic Freedom

Abhijit Naskar
“Biases continuously try to keep us from recognizing and understanding those biases. For example, racial biases keep us from understanding racial discrimination, just like religious biases keep us from understanding religious discrimination and cultural biases keep us from understanding the inhuman habits in our cultural traditions.”
Abhijit Naskar, Earthquakin' Egalitarian: I Die Everyday So Your Children Can Live

Abhijit Naskar

“A person's assumptions reveal who they are, more than the words they utter.”
Wayne Gerard Trotman

“Engaging in the physical world; learning how to build or make or do something in the physical world, where the results aren't negotiable; you can't claim that you did it if you didn't; you either summited, or the cake is edible, or the eggplant grew, or the table is made - whatever it is, doing something that is a physical manifestation in the world will create strength and ability. [And that physical experience is important because unless you have experience you may have inaccurate ideas about things.]

Experience reveals your biases. And it reveals the holes in your thinking. And it informs you and enables you to become a much more complete and frankly, compassionate human being.”
Heather Heying
