Thomas Paine – April 2010
All too often, it is the fine print at the bottom of a document that advises the reader of possible errors or omissions in the body of the document that has already been read. I believe it is best to point out, in advance, which content is knowledge ( supported by facts ) and which content is notion ( driven by emotion ). I am stating up front that the following contains a significant measure of notion. Such must be so since it attempts to predict the future. Even though this approach differs from my normal approach to subject matter, I believe the point to be discussed is so important it merits an early warning, i.e., warning before the fact, therefore notion.
