Right now, we're so focused on doing more with less - a valuable challenge - that we're limiting ourselves to inward advancement.
The things that expand our horizons trigger grander innovation. Activate manifest destiny, and watch the world come alive!
Dig this well. I have called it the most important civil liberties matter in our lifetimes -- certainly in thirty years -- even though it was hardly covered by the press. In 2013 both the U.S. courts and the Obama Administration declared it to be "settled law" that a citizen has the right to record his or her interactions with police in public places.
No single matter could have been more important because it established the most basic right of "sousveillance" or looking-back at power, that The Transparent Society is all about. It is also fundamental to freedom, for in altercations with authority, what other recourse can a citizen turn to, than the Truth?
One of the chants at Black Lives Matter rallies should be “Give Us More Tech!” Which is short for: “Oh so NOW you believe us, now that we can take pictures of what we went through for generations?” Well, yes. Then become nerds! Use cameras to fight back, a lot safer and more effective and modern than guns.
But none of that will be possible when elites - like the state - can shut down our phone-cams. So make a habit of keeping some old fashioned cameras around! And count on technology to give us so many eyes that this trick will sink into obscurity.
Community colleges are strapped for cash because someone came up with the idea that affordability trumps ability. Thus, community colleges are repeatedly forced to cut back on services, forcing their students to endure waiting lists to get on waiting lists, a faculty of part-time teachers who have little too no connection to the school our it's students, and an education remarkably similar to what they should have learned in high school.
Yet while community colleges are cutting funding, career colleges continue to make an investment in their faculty. Sure, it's less of an investment that they made in their admissions staff, but to hear (not from Oliver, of course) that Corinthian Colleges was actually replacing the bulk of their part time online faculty with full time faculty because they recognized the need for instructors who cared about their students, one just may realize that working to ensure a college is profitable may not be such a bad thing.
' “If the public needs to relearn what to do every time they approach a bin, then they’ll treat each bin like a trash can,” she says. '
We've been "taught" about recycling -- to separate our papers and plastics and aluminium from our trash. But over the past years, confusion of what we can recycle has made the process inefficient and more costly than beneficial.
I posit this article as a case study for when training is not the appropriate option -- yes, people need to learn, but they don't need training.
She looked down on the village that had been her home until she was eighteen years old. It hadn't really changed much over the years - it was still a small collection of two and three-room cottages nestled in a little valley with a small, flat school to the east and a church dominating the center. Steam rose off the rooftops to mingle with smoke drifting lazily from chimneys. She could almost make out a few people in their yards, turning over the soil in preparation for winter.
When she'd written her parents that she wanted to come back home for a visit, the response had been terse: "That would be fine." Sixteen years of absence had done little to mellow her mother's feelings. Her father...
The last thing she'd heard from her father had been shouted after her as she dove into Franz' rusted VW Beetle with nothing more than a stuffed backpack and two layers of clothing. "No good will come of this!" he had warned. "You'll be back full of remorse and a swollen belly!" Her mother had stood behind him, voicing her agreement through loud, gulping sobs.
She'd tried to explain her dreams to them - to all of them - but it had been a disaster. Only Franz had understood. Hadn't he had the same dreams of doing more in the world? Of cities and countries and far-off places where there was more to life than trees and the mill and whomever God was going to smite next?
Anna had been so sure she’d never return, but..
"For God's sake, Mom, you've been out here for ten minutes! Can we just go? I'm freezing!"
Anna looked back at her daughter, 14 years old and ready to fly with fledgling dreams of her own. It seemed to Anna that she had spent a lifetime helping her grow, but now all her efforts were to pull her back from the flimsy boundaries that separated her from the dangerous outside world.
That's why she was coming back home today - to let her parents know that she understood.
I mean, with just a few replaced words, she could be describing the federal government's assault on education.
"In an unprecedented maneuver this past June, the Department of Education launched a mean-spirited assault on education.
It was stunning. With one letter, the federal government elected to turn their backs on fairness, compassion and common sense -- and go after dreamers in California and across America.
We are talking about children and young adults -- many of whom were brought to our country as infants -- who grew up here, went to school here, work here and live here as our neighbors and friends. Now the DOE wants these young dreamers and their families out of school. It's sad, it's ugly, and it's against everything we stand for as a country."
