40 yrs ago my dad was suffering from glaucoma.When I gave him a bag of pot to smoke he was horrified.My response of “everyone does”generated “everyone YOU know does”.Enlightenment from the uncool that has informed my life ever since.

60yrs ago McCluhan said the medium is the message.Keep in mind that the mediation has an effect on everything you learn or see.

Read information generated by sources that do not agree with you-as an old hippie leftist I read Wapo,Wsj,The Economist,The Globe and Mail etc.It makes the information that generates contrasting views comprehensible.

Remember the debate itself is an important part of learning and it doesn’t have to be won.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
