About Perspectives:

Our Credoinspired by Neil Gaiman

Welcome to Perspectives, a new way to share ideas. The Statesman believes “that you can set your own ideas against ideas you dislike. That you should be free to argue, explain, clarify, debate, offend, insult, rage, …  sing, dramatize and deny.” The goal of Perspectives is to start and add to conversations through persuasion, thought-provoking ideas, research or some combination thereof. Each Perspective is written by a Statesman staff writer and does not necessarily reflect the views of the staff in its entirety. We write because ideas “are invisible, and they linger, and, sometimes, they are even true.”

Eppur si muove: and yet it moves.
