Anywhere, Anyhow

“Somebody who only reads newspapers and at best books of contemporary authors looks to me like an extremely near-sighted person who scorns eyeglasses. He is completely dependent on the prejudices and fashions of his times, since he never gets to see or hear anything else.”

― Albert Einstein

  1. Well, If I adhere to Einstein’s logic, by reading an older book, then I am focusing on the prejudices of that time. I tend to read contemporary authors though I just picked up a volume of Jack London’s stories.

    I do agree with him about newspapers. It is one thing for a newspaper to choose what stories appear in their publication, but I find it annoying when they write strong opinions outside of the editorial page, and it does not matter if it is a conservative or liberal opinion.

    I prefer to read the article sites such as: Aeon, the Atlantic, Truthout, Nextdraft and Medium. If I do need to look at a news publication, I will find my topic of interest at Google News. At least they use different sources.
