Freedom of Speech

A Few Thoughts on August 15, 2018

Today, I heard a speaker ask his audience of young professionals to consider the costs of not changing. He was speaking about being adaptive in one’s careers, but I started to think about it in terms of how we treat other people. What is the cost if we allow discrimination, bigotry, and abuse to run rampant? I believe we risk losing the beauty in other people because our preconceived bias.

Fake News Fatigue

I’m getting fake news fatigue. No, not because I’m sick of consuming narratives that are obviously false, or even that I’m tired of wading through a ton of bullshit media just to find the truth. I’m sick to death of the term “fake news” and anyone who uses that term to describe a point of view they don’t care for.

Thanks, 45.
