    but I cannot yet share your enthusiastic optimism. I hope very much that you are right and I am wrong.

    I think one of the things that need to be placed at the forefront of this new movement forward is the necessity to instill critical thinking ability in everyone involved. Schools aren't doing it, most people don't realize they don't have it, and that is the aspect of all the social media muck that bothers me the most.

    Setting an example of questioning the status quo is a good place to start, and for that I salute you. However, I encourage each and every one of us who are willing to unite to think about those who don't question enough and help them. In other words, if there is a meme to spread it's "question everything". I think it would help.

    None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
