Critical Thinking

 in Jersey Village - Eternal Martial Arts

In Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, one of the characters (Beatty) is trying to convince Montag of the futility of free thinking: "...So bring on your clubs and parties, your acrobats and magicians, your daredevils, jet cars, motorcycle helicopters, your sex and heroin, more of everything to do with automatic reflex."  The book is a cautionary tale about so many things, but definitely warns against uniformed thinking.  Written in 1951, it sounds very much like today.  We live in an entertainment dominated culture where people have outsourced their own thinking in many areas.  It's important that we teach children to think for themselves and to avoid group-think, unless we'd like to learn the lesson that books burn at 451 degrees fahrenheit.
