    A look at the philosophy of David Hume.

    This article is beautifully written, by Sara Papic.  I could take a leaf out of her book, for my own.  Perhaps her writing is a little bit bland, and could do with some more colour.

    Me likes Hume a great deal. But he made an error in crediting the free market place of ideas when he opined that Catholicism would die if its proponents were not punished for speaking. Catholicism is so illogical i am paraphrasing that broadcasting its tenets to all would cause it to croak.

    Three centuries since his birth and intellectuals continue to trumpet the validity of the free market place of ideas. Add the algorithms of the internet on social media and it is gotta be near impossible for anybody to believe the BS if they will only give it a thought.
