NYT: Meet the Renegades of the Intellectual Dark Web

If you're a fan of open discourse, here's a rare breath of fresh air from the New York Times this week:

"the boundaries of public discourse have become so proscribed as to make impossible frank discussions of anything remotely controversial."

"Of course, the whole notion of drawing lines to keep people out is exactly what inspired the Intellectual Dark Web folks in the first place. They’re committed to the belief that setting up no-go zones and no-go people is inherently corrupting to free thought."

"the only way you can construe a group of intellectuals talking to each other as dangerous is if you are scared of what they might discover."

...For millions of years man had lived just like the animals
then something happened which unleashed the power of the imagination
we learned to talk.
///
It doesn't have to be like this
all we need to do
is make sure
we keep talking

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
115 pages, $12.50
