David G. Myers
“Magician James Randi has used this empirical approach when testing those claiming to see glowing auras around people’s bodies:
Randi: Do you see an aura around my head?
Aura seer: Yes, indeed.
Randi: Can you still see the aura if I put this magazine in front of my face?
Aura seer: Of course.
Randi: Then if I were to step behind a wall barely taller than I am, you could determine my location from the aura visible above my
head, right?
Randi once told me that no aura seer has agreed to take this simple test.”
David G. Myers, Psychology

Leonard Peikoff
“A philosophy of education, in short, is essential to being a proper parent; otherwise, you are merely turning your child over to blind chance.”
Leonard Peikoff, Teaching Johnny to Think

Thomas Sowell
“The concept of “microaggression” is just one of many tactics used to stifle differences of opinion by declaring some opinions to be “hate speech,” instead of debating those differences in a marketplace of ideas. To accuse people of aggression for not marching in lockstep with political correctness is to set the stage for justifying real aggression against them.”
Thomas Sowell

Leonard Peikoff
“I believe that a proper education in grade school would achieve much more for the general public than getting an M.A. in the best college today ever would. You do not need millions of courses across decades and decades. That is a modern absurdity. It is the result of a worthless, self-perpetuating educational bureaucracy. Even with the explosion of knowledge, you can give people a proper, thorough education by the time they are a normal high school graduate.”
Leonard Peikoff, Teaching Johnny to Think

Leonard Peikoff
“Under communism, there is collective ownership of property de jure. Under Nazism, there is the same collective ownership de facto.”
Leonard Peikoff, The Cause of Hitler's Germany
