Think For Yourself. Question Authority.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability, to inform yourself.

– Timothy Leary

Yet again our government has banned a work of art that highlights an extremely critical social issue. India’s Daughter, a BBC documentary about the Nirbhaya rape case is being banned by the Indian government. The documentary gives an insight into the mindset that a huge chunk of our society has about women. This is a documentary that needs to be seen. Stand up for free speech! You can watch the full documentary here before it is taken down.
