Ignorance is not bliss. It is the food of slaves.
Raymond Hewitt has much to say about religion, philosophy, science, economics, history: truth.
"Basically, there are two systems of what people accept as truth. The most common is to accept the beliefs of others when they are appealing, because they are popularly accepted. I took the minority road, to base my thinking on reality and moral non-aggression. I can tell you from experience that it is such a great pleasure to be conscious of the signs and events around me and to be able to compensate for them with a minimum of error."
