Once upon a time, the prejudices of an educated man were powerful enough to deny the uneducated a fair opportunity to learn.
Today, through social media, online educational platforms, and the overall ease with which information can be exchanged and distributed, we have the ability to be constructively influenced even by the minds of those who might be inclined to deem us unworthy of their insights.
The contemporary landscape is a learner’s market. We are more free than we have ever been to take charge of our education and, by implication, our evolution.
Natural selection has given way to self-education.
We get to choose what we become.
What an opportunity.
