"Let me be clear. Thinking things through is tough:
You need the proper concepts, rightly understood.
And no one working on their own will be enough.
It takes a crowd of minds, working together. Then we should
Speak to the culture, speak our truths … the stuff
We’re sure of and the doubts: the bad news and the good.
This is our role. We work things through
Mostly because we want ourselves to understand,
Repaying the privilege by sharing, old or new,
Whatever we discover, slight or grand.
We know that what you’ll take from us is up to you."
