Mission

As we move forward into political and social uncertainty I wanted to create a space where not only all ideas would be considered, yes even the baseless stupid ideas, but I also wanted to create a space where we critically look at everything we consider inherently right. This includes our political positions, news sources, academic sources, social understanding, and personal philosophies. The best way to understand the depth of something is to understand what isn’t there. In none cryptic words I mean if you are a liberal, moderate, conservative, or any thing in between are beyond. The best way to make an argument for the validity in what you believe in is having the ability to argue against yourself. Yes, that sounds crazy. However, if you have the ability to argue against what you already know/believe is true then you have the ability to combat any opposition that is presented when you are defending your beliefs. As been quoted by Sun Tzu to the point of cliché, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
