I have an aversion to watching videos that are offered in forums, especially when these are accompanied by little or no explanation. I do not assert that this is a reasonable aversion, but it does exist.Revolutionary » Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:04 am wrote:Did you watch the video I posted on top of page 2?

Also when you figure that out how to live your adult life in a way that you can for the most part remain happy?

Also you have to go to a school around a district where you live in and you don't get to chose which one you want to go to. In addition to those things it's not a democracy it's a totalitarian environment where you just have to be quiet and do what you're told. All the assignments and projects you are assigned everyone else is assigned them too. A one size fits all environment as well (I like to call it one size fits none) some students learn better with different teaching styles and different techniques and to this day all the stupid standardized testing has meant absolutely nothing for me and my future.

They teach us nothing about money.
Then we go to college to learn business (an extremely popular degree) where we have to learn how to chase the dollar to survive.
And while they teach us Business. We learn nothing of business ethics or environmental economics. The very things that protect our happiness and quality of life. Those things that mattered back in grade school.
meanwhile all the non-business majors suffer because they were never taught finances.
And then our teachers suffer (how many of you have heard more times than you can count a teacher complaining about how much money they make?) and when our teachers suffer, our education suffers.
"The modern community recognizes five groups of leaders or professions. The five professions as they are known in every country of the world are the soldier, teacher, physician, lawyer and merchant. On certain occasions it is the duty of each of these professions to die for the community. "The soldier, rather leave his post in battle. The physician, rather than leave his post in a plague. The pastor, rather than teach falsehood. The lawyer, rather than countenance injustice. The merchant-what is his due occasion of death?"
The merchant, a term that Ruskin uses to refer to all who are engaged in any form of industrial pursuit, is ranked in the professional classes. He is constituted one of the leaders of the most vital of all functions- feeding, clothing and housing the community and providing for its welfare.
"Observe the merchant's function," Ruskin goes on to say, "is to provide the nation. It is no more his function to get profit for himself out of that provision than it is the clergyman's function to get his stipend." The leader of industry, like the leader of any other profession, must look upon himself as the servant of those people- called consumers- for whom the things that he produces are intended.
The merchant, therefore, appears in a wholly new role. He is proudest when he is able to do the most for those who are depending upon him for the necessities of life."

Break the system so people have no choice and are forced to change.
Get people involved so they feel like it's important to their survival and give them ownership over it because people are selfish egotisticals.
Precisely. Politics has a bad name in some quarters, but politics is like diplomacy, the art of finding common ground, not grounds for conflict.Revolutionary » Sat Feb 18, 2017 5:12 pm wrote:@eclogite good idea I have to be strategic about this not emotional.
