Pilgrim, Know Thy Self
Every day I receive spammer emails offering to sell me software that promises to let me find out nearly anything about anyone. Who cares?
Maybe this is an invasion of privacy issue, or not—but it smacks of totalitarian nonsense for people with too much time on their hands.
It would be much better to find out everything about your self—that is, if you’ve got the courage to take on such a journey. Better to live in a society where integrity is not only its own reward, but it pays to develop this quality.
As the sages have taught us: a wise man knows others; a master knows himself.
