Think for Yourself


“If a person gave away your body to some passerby, you’d be furious. Yet you hand over your mind to

 anyone who comes along, so they may abuse you, leaving it disturbed and troubled—have you no 

shame in that?” —EPICTETUS, ENCHIRIDION, 28


Outsourcing your thoughts to other people, like the present day news media which generates 

consent by providing its own opinions, reasons, and arguments instead of you yourself going and 

finding the source in the wild and deducing from evidence you gathered yourself.
