1. What is the purpose of this blog?
2. How is this blog going to be different from the myriads of other blogs that inundate cyberspace?
3. What is my motive for actually beginning this venture?
I realised that I live in a post modern society that welcomes the subjective contributions of all especially within an academic/intellectual space yet within this said space that is supposed to give expressions of the competing world-views, some are stifled; made tabooed even. Consequently, I was motivated to give voice to those who have been pushed to the fringes because they hold those "tabooed" world views. Now that takes care of question number 3.
Now to answer question number 1, this blog seeks to elucidate, elevate and educate. The blogger and the contributors wish not to simply entertain you or tickle anyone's thirst for a decadent chunk of gossip. Our objective is to get our people to be critical thinkers and philosophers while remaining accessible.
Moreover, this blog is different because it does not seek to tell anyone how to think but seeks to engage, us, all to think and contribute so that we can get a whole picture. who says we all how to agree? Why does it have to be either or all the time; why not both and?
Keep your fingers cross and keep the ideas churning as we take this journey together. Now that I have introduced this blog, stay tuned for our next post.
