During the night I had a visit from a spirit being who introduced himself as Demosthenes. Upon awakening, I had to Google the name to learn more about who he was:
Demosthenes (384 – 12 October 322 BC) was a Greek statesman and orator in ancient Athens. He delivered his first judicial speeches at the age of 20. Link→
In Defense of Logic
He had a message that he named, 'In Defense of Logic':
"Words are a mighty instrument to heal or to hurt. Articulate them concisely and succinctly that the verbal skill of eloquent expression of your intent may distinguish you as a god among men."
"The greatest enslavement among men occurs when well-intended, but misguided parents instruct their children in what to think instead of how to think. This crucial oversight perpetuates the enslavement of the minds of subsequent generations steeped in dogma and stifled by the prison bars of unquestioned loyalties."
"The result of generations of enslaved minds, is the irresponsible disrespect for original thinking. Instead of producing a culture for future generations in which old hackneyed belief systems are questioned for their validity, old assumptions and invalid belief systems are touted as hallowed wisdom."
"In the face of the disintegration of society, the pertinent question must be asked as to what has caused the stagnation of the minds of man, and what has burdened humanity with the yoke of mediocrity and mindlessness? As in the days of the demise of the great Atlantis, the answer must conclusively lead to the societal norm of stifling greatness in the impressionable minds of the young by discouraging their questions and arrogantly imposing parental value systems as answers. Thus I say to you: set the minds of your children free by fostering their right to question and discard your most doggedly held beliefs."
