Flight – An Old Post from my other blog

“Flight”

I was involved in a discussion about Education today vs as it was 40 years ago so I did what comes naturally – I ranted

“The problem, as I see it, has more to do with character, ethics, opportunity and community support for young people and educational opportunity on the job. We as a country have used the word intellectual as if it were a slur and science as if it were witchcraft. We have allowed some to insinuate that sensitivity is a weakness and quick undeliberated decisions are a sign of strength. We believe that outrageous profit is great no matter who it hurts. We are taught to believe and not to think. We are taught that life is a game and not an interconnected community of people.”
