"David Foster Wallace on Work & Life" is an article adapted from a 2005 commencement speech at Kenyon College. While it is not related to politics, I really enjoyed the piece and it truly changed the way in which I think.
Wallace says that the liberal-arts cliche about "teaching yourself to think" really means "learning how to exercise control over how and what you think." He explains that
liberal-arts education should teach students how to live without forgetting what is "real and essential."
ENJOY and happy friday.
