According to the Atlantic Magazine, a “Brave Thinker” is “someone who has the courage to ask fundamental questions about why things are the way they are, and how they might be instead”.
Brave thinkers ask uncomfortable questions and drive our society forward – The Atlantic has nominated 27 such people. Some we know, like Ben Bernanke, Ralph Nader and Barack Obama – and some that are more obscure, like Trey Parker and Matt Stone the creators of the TV show “Southpark", and John Fetterman, the mayor of Braddock PA.
But brave thinkers don’t just exist on a national level, they’re also right here in Connecticut – in our cities and towns, in our neighborhoods and schools.
Today, Where We Live – we’ll talk to the editor of the Atlantic to find out how they made their nominations – and you’ll hear some local nominations as well. And we want to hear from you… Who would you nominate as a “Brave Thinker” and why?
