I believe that CRITICAL THINKING EDUCATION is an important PUBLIC GOOD within liberal democratic societies. We all benefit, as individuals and as a society, when everyone has access to resources and opportunities to develop their critical thinking and communication skills.
To that end, I've adopted a "Pay What You Want" model to help support the development of this site.
