Having recently read Orwells 1984, I was impressed with how he understood that both politicians and people abuse language. This further confirmed to me how the W.T had deceived me by using words to distort reality. The book 1984, also contains many other great thoughts of George Orwell.
Of course there have been many other great thinkers, Buddah, Darwin, Freud, Einstein and Marx come to mind. So:-
A) Who do you consider the great thinkers are who have influenced the way you think today and why?
B) Do you think great thinking often comes about by average thinkers debating together?
