Thinkers Without Borders Individual Student chan, josh, joshchan, thinkers, without borders

I have started this blog because I would like to foster a discussion that transcends the borders that are imposed by others and often ourselves. I decided on the term “Thinkers” because my motivation to start a blog always came when I thought of something I found intriguing and wished I could share it with an audience greater than one. I originally toyed with the inclusion of the phrase “think tank,” as I’ve been fascinated with the term since I first heard of it. However, after some research into the usage of the phrase, I realized that almost all so-called “think tanks” have an obvious slant, whether they admit to it or not. Furthermore, the realities of funding and directives from above oblige think tanks to focus their resources on specific areas of research, which can be seen in some ways as an unavoidable bias in itself.

I will admit that the many prestigious "...Without Borders" organizations that precede this blog were a factor in my decision, Still, I would like to think that I am using the well-worn suffix in a novel way. While geographical borders are certainly surpassed in this blog thanks to the expansive nature of the Internet, I hope readers also consider the subtle borders that exist solely in our minds and limit our thinking. The border of upbringing. The border of embarrassment. The border of the zeitgeist (political correctness). The border of profession versus hobby. The list goes on, but I hope you have an idea of what I’m getting at. I would argue that these intangible borders are often the most limiting, as their very nature makes them all but impossible to identify and eradicate.

I concede that many of these borders will never be completely eliminated. Still, I see room for improvement.
