Brave New World has had the greatest impact on me. The idea of not being inclined to be content without having any real foundation. To think for yourself, to not be satisfied with the status quo. It's a vital concept in this day an age to truly consider what will cause us to be subdued, whether it be religion or government. Along with Oscar Wilde, the concept of satire, especially socio cultural and political are my true calling!
The debate! Talking about issues that matter and how they will affect our futures! Philosophy, psycholog, and especially behavioral economics!
That no government should be free from criticism, the moment a government is free from criticism is the moment it ceases to uplift the human condition. Satire for the win!
POLITICS! Satire, economics, and history!
utilizing politics and pop culture to point out the government's inadequacies.
Randy Pausch, notable because of his Last Lecture prompted me to look at the way I live my life. He reminds me of Steve Jobs, just because of the utter promise and potential that they lived with until their last day, being envious and striving to live with that kind of conviction.
