    The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.

    Just finished watching The Post about the publication of The Pentagon Papers in 1971 and am finding it hard to consider a role more patriotic than that of a journalist willing to call out his government when they’ve been deceitful to the American people.

    I particularly liked the quote at the end which is a real quote from one of the Supreme Court justices who tried the case against the New York Times:

    “In the First Amendment the Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have to fulfill its essential role in our democracy. The press was to serve the governed, not the governors.” – Hugo Black

    The most dangerous tradition we hold about work is that it must be serious and meaningless. We believe that we’re paid money to compensate us for work not worthwhile on its own. People who are paid the most are often the most confused, for they know in their hearts how little meaning there is in what they do, for others and for themselves. While money provides status, status doesn’t guarantee meaning. They’re paid well because of how poorly work compensates their souls.
