Words of Wisdom for the New Year 2011

Why are we still in the dark...? The Enlightenment occurred during the 1600's yet we (the lost crowds) still fight against it. What keeps so many of us ignorant? Is it fear or are certain minds incapable of maturing? With advancements in science happening at any given moment, this unenlightenment and vagueness of mind, should have been eradicated years ago but yet it still continues. That is why I ask…WHY ARE WE STILL IN THE DARK? BTHOM???

WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE NEW YEAR 2011

I have heard of HL Mencken but never really
investigated his works. In today’s excerpt at
Delanceyplace.com there is a brief but profound eulogy of sorts, to a magnificent mind belonging to a man of deep conviction and forethought. Hey, Mencken nailed it, didn't he? His thoughts back then in 1918 are exactly what’s happening in America Today i.e.

**grave concerns about anti-intellectualism in American society, which he viewed as being found most prominently in organized religion (from CHRISTIAN TO MUSLIM - the optimal word being 'organized') and political discourse (TEA PARTY comes to mind)**

Here's a suggestion, for a new year resolution why don’t we (those of us who think) try researching the great minds who saw the writing-on-the-wall. Perhaps, it won’t do much in the scheme of things but for sure it will remind us THAT WE ARE NOT ALONE. Happy New Year! thinkingblue
