The use of Reason and reasonable argumentation, the reclaiming of the idea of Progress and the struggle against dogma. In this post-modern world, reinventing Enlightenment is of the utmost importance.

Bloguing on Death row


Back to the Enlightenment is against the death penalty. Furthermore, I think that those in power, with the help of mainstream media, usually portray convicts on Death row as vicious animals.

Before, we could never really get the other face of the coin. The thoughts, the emotions of men and women that would be locked up for years in the Death Row, waiting for final execution, and, perhaps, final deliverance.

The blogosphere is changing this state of affairs, though. Meet Vernon. A prisoner on Death row and read what he has to say in a blog were his thoughts and emotions are being registered. You can even leave questions.

It comes with a catch: you only have untill February 6.
