Policy Statement: place cursor on picture.

"Out of love for mankind, and out of despair at my embarrassing situation, seeing that I had accomplished nothing and
was unable to make anything easier than it had already been made, and moved by a genuine interest in those
who are dedicated to making everything easy, I conceived it as my task [the task of the philosopher]
to create difficulties everywhere."

—Sören Kierkegaard
