    Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes states that a liberal education “…emancipates; it signifies freedom from the tyranny of ignorance, and from what is worse, the domination of folly.” In many regards, his words are very true.

A college education has to train students to be critical thinkers as well as prepare them to enter the profession of their choice all while cultivating an omniscient body of students who work together to defeat the “domination of folly” through their knowledge in each person’s field of expertise. A liberal education trains students to think for themselves, which, in doing so, relinquishes the rule of ignorance. In Ancient Rome, common people were not educated in any way, and, therefore, were never taught critical thinking skills and how to come to their own conclusions.

    Plays present a unique approach to story telling over typical novels. The little things, like the use of stage directions can dramatically alter the interoperation when reading a play. This gives the author a lot of power to tell a great story and have control over its interpretation. One of my favorite examples of a well written play is “The Farnsworth Invention” by Aaron Sorkin. This play is a fiction interpretation of the battle of inventing television. You have boy genius Philo Farnsworth…
