How content is used and generated in the western world needs an overhaul. It also has confused me for a long time how when you’re at school. Your peers tell you to concentrate on one particular subject and get very good at it for excellent career prospects.
Never are you given an inclining that that idea is absurd as you need to get a rounded view on many subjects – surely!
Maybe this is something; they do at independent schools. It would be interesting to know what they teach at private schools: they tell their students how to manage people and don’t talk much about learning one particular subject.
For me, education is more than a means to develop the economy and be pawns in the game of life.
With this in mind, everyone who wants to have pride in themselves needs to have a well-balanced education, which goes with the entire population.
The decisions you make in life will make a difference for you and your society, and those decisions will dramatically change the more of a rounded education you have.
If people have a broad view of lots of subjects in their education, it stands to reason, their choices in life are going to more ‘open‘ and not insular. It will therefore make a better world order – don’t you think?
The truth is our schools are just not getting it right and need an overhaul; without this, people are never going to have what they long for, which seems to be more and more to do with the environment.
The internet may have come into people lives, but it still is not being used to its full potential. It’s getting people to experiment more and more with various ways of communicating, such as social media, podcasts and so forth.
But I feel we haven’t quite cracked it when it comes to conversation and improving how we do this. Do we have to make everything so complicated? We still seem to be making everything more and more complex.
When it comes to our governments (red tape), hundreds of documents are being written by hundreds of people. Surely we are intelligent enough to think up a way that simplify things.
I think people are finally falling out of love with materialism and want to live in a better world that’s more mindful of the earth. It just needs that conscious decision to start doing things in a less controlling way and think of a better world order.
