    I had a young friend who was a genius...well, he still is.

    His doctorate committee had a member on it who was thoroughly against his choice of a thesis.

    My friend continued to write it and it was wonderful.  The anti-thesis dude admitted he had been wrong...but what if my friend had dropped the thesis or even been too discouraged to write it?

    It boggles my mind to think how often this may have happened and how many bland, blah theses have been produced for the sake of safety.

      The hardest part of rankism is how it grinds away at our spirit, steals vital hope, makes us all smaller. Even the winners on top are smaller in their hearts, from sitting on the humanity of others.
