The Twilight Zone is an easily recognizable and very thought provoking series. I plan on creating 4 posts, some over favorites of mine, others just ones that were particularly philosophical. So let us begin:
His wife would strongly disagree with John Stuart Mill, because, although he may have a right to pursue his greater pleasure by reading, he is ultimately damaging their marriage and relationship with one another by refusing to converse. Even if he was a genius, I do not think that the characteristic should give a person the ability to snub everyone else and swallow the opinion that by doing so, the world is a better place since the uninterrupted genius will contribute so much more to society.
