Voice of Reason: Christopher Hitchens - The conversation worth having

Thanks Loren Miller for sharing this with us. 

Mind-binding is real and it makes one unable and unwilling to doubt or question authority, to the detriment of mental and physical health. I remember well, sitting in my upstairs office writing about my distrust of my upbringing and wondering why, when I did everything I was told, life was so dreadful. I imagined a lightning strike would come down and smite me, just as I had been warned. Along came young, vibrant, intelligent, sensible Hitch, and I figured if he were still alive, maybe I would survive my queries. 

Be really mindful of what you believe to be true; it may be getting you into problems that remain unfixable if you put your faith into them.
