Hello, I just signed up on this website, it looks very interesting.
I love the simple idea of this platform, to share articles and books and generally raise our intellectual levels (Love the intellectual lounge btw. That is how I found the website, I was searching for interesting lounge chairs and this also popped up way down on page 4 or 5!!!!)
I think anyone can be intellectual, whether they are a professor or a janitor. We all have things to share and many times, we are scared to do it with our own social groups because we fear they may think we are looking down on them. or that we are behaving way above our station, or way above our actual level...what is wrong with that tell me? To aspire to be bigger and better??
I think everyone can say something intelligent, everyone has something to share that others can learn from...some of the most intelligent people on this earth, from past and present never went to college right? I am not saying Bill Gates or those types, but people who had hard lives who could not afford proper education, self-taught musicians...everyone has something to say if given the chance...
Anyway, thanks for this website and I think I have a lot to say, which I will use this forum for!! (I hope the other members are supportive in their comments!!)
