questioning leads to discovery


Don’t accept what you’ve been spoon-fed all your life.
Don’t submit to the whims of the masters of the universe willingly.
Don’t be another sheep who thinks he’s a wolf.

Question why you hold the political beliefs you hold.
Question why Burger Kings still exist when no one ever eats there.
Question every single minute detail of what you encounter every day. Your life will be richer and a lot more interesting.

On this site we cover a range of topics, in a variety of styles, at different positions along the spectrum of seriousness.

The Heretic Picayune is the first step toward a vastly more interesting society. And it starts with the simple act of questioning.
