Guests include journalist Joshua Prager, student Adora Svitak, writers Boyd Varty and Tony Porter, and psychiatrist Robert Waldinger. (Original broadcast date: June 10, 2016)

I have had the mind of perceiving life from my perspective. Forcing ideas to others while believing it's the most logical. Wisdom is surely humbleness. I will say, patterns do not define us, we might be repetitive beings on basic level but, we are adaptive beings based on events. Each person has a different experience and perspective at same age

Men write and read themselves as if they are the norm and all others are Other.

Baraschwa when the word men is used, is it to refer to a Gender or the human race?

Baraschwa That's not correct. That is a very destructive and primitive thought. If you spread this thought to others, you are poisoning and destroying everything we have worked to create in the name of Equality. Men are Men, Women are Women, Children are Children, Blacks are Blacks, White's are White's, Latino's are Latino's, Asians are Asians, Muslims are Muslims. At the end of the day what we all are, is Human. Remember that. That, is our equality.
