Jordan B. Peterson
“Life is suffering
Love is the desire to see unnecessary suffering ameliorated
Truth is the handmaiden of love
Dialogue is the pathway to truth
Humility is recognition of personal insufficiency and the willingness to learn
To learn is to die voluntarily and be born again, in great ways and small
So speech must be untrammeled
So that dialogue can take place
So that we can all humbly learn
So that truth can serve love
So that suffering can be ameliorated
So that we can all stumble forward to the Kingdom of God”
Jordan B. Peterson

Yuval Noah Harari
“In the past, censorship worked by blocking the flow of information. In the 21st century, censorship works by flooding people with irrelevant information. People just don't know what to pay attention to, and they often spend their time investigating and debating side issues.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow

Jim Gaffigan
“Little kids are the only sober human beings for the past fifty years to enjoy a parade.”
Jim Gaffigan, Dad Is Fat

“People don’t see the things they’re rewarded for as problems to fix.”
Mike Monteiro, Ruined by Design: How Designers Destroyed the World, and What We Can Do to Fix It

“On March 21, 2006, Jack Dorsey published the world’s first tweet: “just setting up my twttr.” On July 22, 2018, Donald Trump tweeted: “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!” (Capitalization his.) In the twelve years between those two tweets, some things happened that are worth exploring.”
Mike Monteiro, Ruined by Design: How Designers Destroyed the World, and What We Can Do to Fix It
