Bertrand Russell’s philosophical thought and understanding speaks to me at a fundamental level. A rationalist, agnostic and mathematician who has spoken out fearlessly as a voice of reason and logic on topics which many philosophers and historians fear to tread. Many times he says exactly what I have been trying to put into words, but could not. He lived in the 19th and 20th centuries, to the ripe old age of 98.

Dysfunctional and absolutely exciting at the same time. Creating our common future with every individual and societal choice we act on, every moment of every day.
