“Make men wise, and by that very operation you make them free. Civil liberty follows as a consequence of this; no usurped power can stand against the artillery of opinion” —William Goldman
HOW ARE YOU?
I’ve never been better! Just finished junior year of college, home for about a month before I leave for Thailand for a 5 week volunteer opportunity. La vita e bella. How are you? How is life/what are we gonna to do if Bob Dylan ever dies?
“Struggle does occur in many modes, and some lead to cooperation among members of a species as the best pathway to advantage for individuals. If Kropotkin overemphasized mutual aid, most Darwinians in Western Europe had exaggerated competition just as strongly. If Kropotkin drew inappropriate hope for social reform from his concept of nature, other Darwinians had erred just as firmly (and for motives that most of us would now decry) in justifying imperial conquest, racism, and oppression of industrial workers as the harsh outcome of natural selection in the competitive mode.” —Stephen Jay Gould, Bully for Brontosaurus
