How content is used and generated in the western world needs an overhaul. It’s always confused me since going to school in the UK. Your peers tell you to concentrate on one 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 well-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 not 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 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 many subjects in their education, it stands to reason that their choices in life will be more ‘open‘ and not insular. Our schools are just not getting it right and need an overhaul; without this, people will never have what they long for, which seems to be more and more to do with the environment. It will therefore make a better world order – don’t you think?
The internet may have come into people’s 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, etc. But I feel we haven’t quite cracked it regarding conversation and improving how we do this. We still seem to be making everything more and more complex. Do we have to make everything so complicated?
When it comes to our governments (red tape), hundreds of documents are constantly written by hundreds of people. Are we not intelligent enough to think up a way that simplifies things. I think people finally fall 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 better world order.
