“People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.” ~Soren Kierkegaard And now for a revolution in critical thinking skills… I don’t intend for this to be a long post today; I was fully engaged in an IDLife event last week (working on that pinpointed supplementation pillar)… [More…]
