NOW SERVING Psychedelic Culture

The Cynic and the Boatbuilder

The cynic thinks that he is being practical and that the hopeful person is not. It is actually the other way around. Cynicism is paralyzing, while the naïve person tries what the cynic says is impossible and sometimes succeeds.

The Cycle of Terror

To build a society of safety and trust rather than security and
fear, we are going to have to act from the former rather than the
latter. I therefore offer a few modest proposals for how to respond to
the Boston bombing.

TED: A Choice Point
