“I don’t agree that I am controversial. What I feel is that most people are not critical thinkers.  The society tells them what to believe, what to think…and their knee jerk reactions are guided completely by that conditioning.  They usually realize later on that what I’m saying is not controversial… when they take time and think in depth.  Even if they don’t agree with me… they understand what I’m saying without all the claims of being shocked by controversy.  I’m not a controversial person if you’re a critical thinker.”
