On Speciesism: A Personal Response

The opinion that we, as human beings, should consider ourselves superior to other living beings has always appalled me.

Like a Block in a Puzzle

Society is a 2D puzzle: basic and made-up of pieces that, as a rule, always fall in the same place. You are a 3D Lego block: versatile and capable of creating all sorts of things.

On Ignorance: The Fallacy in Our Arguments

As a lover of philosophy, one of my favourite things to engage in are rhetorical debates. Not only are these insightful, but they also provide me with different perspectives when it comes to looking at the world at large.
