The Task Ahead

"The task ahead is gigantic if we are to avoid more personal, national, and even international tragedies based on unpredictability, insecurity, fears, anxieties, etc., which are steadily disorganizing the functioning of the human nervous system. Only when we face these facts fearlessly and intelligently may we save for future civilizations whatever there is left to save, and build from the ruins of a dying epoch a new and saner society. ...A non-aristotelian re-orientation is inevitable ; the only problem today is when, and at what cost."
—Alfred Korzybski, Introduction to the Second Edition 1941, Science and Sanity

From the Stray Thought Bin: Beware of Nice People

How weird has it gotten that some people might consider you 'dangerous' because you act nicely towards others, care for your loved ones, and just want to be left alone? 

Citizens beware: there's nothing more dangerous in this world than cheerful, happy, blonde families.

From the Stray Thought Bin: Problem-Solution

There's a solution to every problem and a problem from every solution. 

Dabrowski on Self-Education

"Self-education is the highest possible process of a psychological and moral character. It begins at the time when the individual undergoes changes which permit him to make himself partially independent of biological factors and of the influence of the social environment. At this stage a process, thus far not explained by psychology, takes place, as a consequence of which the individual becomes the resultant not only of inheritance, of factors acting in the womb of a mother, and of his biological and social environment, but also of one more, ever more powerful factor, namely that of defining oneself and of acting upon oneself (the so-called third factor)."

On Diagnostic Labeling

"Physicians think they are doing something for you by labeling what you have as a disease."
