Freedom of speech is a key element of the, shall we say, human predicament. Whenever “Big Brother/Mother” tries to curtail this absolutely essential human right, I am – to put it mildly – up in arms.

Fall is prayer season. Some folks think of it as football season, and indeed, images of football players circled with heads bowed or pointing to the big guy in the sky are almost as familiar lately as birds flying south.

My Favorite H+ Philosophers - David Pearce, Martine Rothblatt, and Ursula K. Le Guin

by Hank Pellissier

iPhone is Not Your Saviour
