The Testing Orthodoxy team loves feedback regarding what topics you would like to see examined or what stories that you’re interested in. We also interested in where you disagree with the site’s viewpoints (this is perhaps the most valuable information since the goal is a conversation). The T.O. team splits its time between various projects, but values feedback as to what direction this blog should take. Partner with us. Your voices are the only ones that we care about.
Orthodoxy means the generally accepted practice or doctrine of a particular industry, faith, etc. It also means the status quo on a particular subject or issue. It’s a fancy way of saying “the way that things have always been done.” Orthodoxy stands for stagnation. It signifies a desire to stifle intellectual evolution and discovery. Defenders of orthodoxy are afraid of change because it typically entails a shift in the current power structure. Whenever change results in a better outcome for the majority, it will likely result in a less attractive reality for those currently in power. Those benefiting from orthodox views don’t relinquish their power peacefully or willingly.
Orthodoxy, as practiced by Fundamentalism (religious, civil, etc.) is a great fire that ravages our society. Orthodoxy stifles progress, empowers prejudice and ensures ignorance. It must be stopped. The world is the opposite of what it once seemed. Darkness is light and light is darkness. Many people, by following the “light” of Orthodox beliefs, have spent years diligently trying to not become the very monster that they have turned into. They had it backwards all along. The cause of this mental and moral affliction is the abstinence of knowledge. The antidote of the disease is the indulgence of knowledge.
Join our community and extinguish the flames of intellectual and cultural tyranny. Enjoy the copulation with forbidden wisdom.
