Words of the Week: Economics & Christmas
introduction to this blog category
As much as the internet is crazy and weird, it's also one of my favorite things about this era that you can read about any topic in the comfort of your home. It's also super overwhelming. I'm on a few email lists that share really thought-provoking articles for discussion and help find the "best of the best", but they're pretty rare. I want to provide another place to look for articles that expand how we think.
That said, I'll be posting Words of the Week with articles I've been thinking about, especially circling around current events/social issues/etc. (Poetry will be a separate post for when you're just looking for some beauty and art!) Please note that most will not represent my worldview & political views fully (or be in opposition to it) and/or will be best suited for adult audiences (heavy themes or uncensored language).
One of my favorite quotes of all time provides a wonderful argument to why reading "offensive" things isn't inherently threatening to your worldview:
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
