April 27, 2011 – Bad indeed.

Reorienting.

Today, I’m RIDding this book on how “bad” our society has become.

It was written many, many, years ago. But I worry now that it was very prescient. The decline of science literacy, the “sound bite” nature of our news, the mere existence of the “birthers,” etc. have all contributed to our populace being more poorly informed than ever.

It’s time to wake up people. Click here. Or here. And learn the lessons.

But today, I’m RIDding this book because it de-motivates¬†me from trying to improve things. To accept things as they are. And to let a sleeping dog lie.

No more.

I’m going to challenge ignorance and lack of information when I see it.

So, uh…get ready.
