Secret Rules for Intellectuals History and rules

History- Ralph Waldo Emerson - a poet, writer and believer in individualism - began The Intellectuals. Ralph Waldo believed that to be yourself in a world constantly trying to make you someone else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo started a group with multiple intellectuals in 1874, protesting the banning of books.
Be independent- Don't rely on anyone else.
You are not important! When asked what you are trying to do, say you are only trying to help society remember.
Remember the book, then burn it. You are the book; if you die, the book dies.
Don't force people to listen, they need to learn to think for themselves in order for the plan to work.
If the plan doesn't work, pass books on to your children by word of mouth.
"Always do what you are afraid to do."- Ralph Waldo Emerson
