"Most of one’s life is one prolonged effort to prevent oneself thinking."
Aldous Huxley

Hello Microdot,
I was first exposed to Aldous Huxley by my 10th grade English Lit teacher and we were assigned to read Brave New World. I later decided to learn more of this amazing person's life. The great 60's band, The Doors, got their name from his book in the 50's "Doors of Preceptions."

Here is another great quote from Huxley.

"At least two-thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religous or political ideas."

Enter the Religious Right Conservatives and the Tea Party.
