Re: What were your dreams last night?

I stole my mother's car and drove to somewhere in south eastern Norway. From there I teleported to Bergen, Norway (don't ask me how), and went to a political seminar there. My thoughts after I woke up: "I teleported to Bergen without telling my parents, I have to text them and tell them not to...

Sam Harris on the moral obligations of the rich

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sam-harris/a-new-years-resolution-fo_b_802480.html Ive always liked Sam Harris but this article resonates on a couple of different levels. Surprised there wasn't already a thread. I have plenty to say but I suppose I'll wait to see if it resonates with anyone else first.
