Reading For My Brains
I just finished reading the Aaron Swartz book and now I’m reading my first Noah Chomsky book. I feel like I can and should be working to change the world.
From the industrial factory origins of schools, to the clandestine activities of the Reagan administration, my brain is working like it hasn’t in years. Chomsky just said something in his book, about how to not look at the effects of activism by what happened, bad stuff definitely happened, but how much worse would it have been if people had done nothing.
I want to talk with people about the world, play off each other’s thoughts and ideas, and try to better myself. I’ve felt so stagnant intellectually, and I finally feel like I’m overcoming the coefficient of static friction.
