I recently changed the name of my blog to VOR which is an acronym for voice of reason. That is one of the purposes of my blog, to provide a voice of reason. Right now the media, politicians and the government have a habit of exploiting people’s emotions to control them. As humans we are all susceptible to allowing our emotions to override our judgment. It often helps if we have someone to bring us back from the brink and to help us focus not on what we feel but what we think. Being able to take a step back, breathe deeply and analyze the logic of a situation, a suggestion or a position often is essential to making better choices. That is one of the functions I want this blog to serve to try and allow the reader to take a step back from outside manipulation and consider alternative explanations and viewpoints. Enjoy!
