Suffering under orthodoxy

From North Korea to Iran, from China to Russia etc. it is possible to suffer under a certain kind of orthodoxy. Maybe in every nation, maybe in every job or neighborhood, even family. The hope of the new tools, the world wide web 2.0, internet access with high speed connection, digital photography, blogging of freethinkers etc. is: to have the wonderful chance to change many kinds of orthodoxy. To open narrow minded hierarchies. To build up communities with more fairness and empathy, more freedom and liberty. The chance to compare global conditions of living is the chance to work against orthodoxy.

(Charles Churchill, 1732-1764)] recently I was also amused by another quotation: Bishop William Warburton (1697-1779): “Orthodoxy is my doxy; heterodoxy is another man’s doxy.”
