Summary: Reading the paper or watching the news does not make one informed. Media sources are often biased or have ulterior motives when presenting you with the "facts". You must learn to think for yourself, by any means necessary. Your television, your priest,

Author's statement:
Think logically, not emotionally -- investigate, explore, question. The truth can only be reached by careful examination of the facts; only the facts can speak for themselves. Remember that 42% of all statistics are wrong. The only broad, sweeping generalization that one can intelligently make is this one. Search for the contradictions and question the status quo. Don't be afraid to admit when you don't fully understand something, because ignorance is not stupidity, it is merely the state of being uninformed. Make it your goal to be informed correctly about all that you can. Finally, expand your mind. Use your imagination, make a sculpture, read the classics, write a poem, see an opera, learn another language, cook a gourmet meal, go to a modern art museum, play a game of chess. Life is more than MTV, the NBA and 90210.

"He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever."
