The Intelligent American seeks to bring science, politics, philosophy in addition to other groundbreaking news into perspective, as a method of promoting diversity of thought. We believe in supporting an objective perspective, in addition to a healthy dose of skepticism, in conjunction with a collaborative discussion, as a mechanism of provoking thought.
“Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and ‘progress,’ everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man’s refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, ‘Disobedience was man’s Original Virtue.’”
― Robert Anton Wilson
