Three terms to focus on here:

Education
Our
Progress


On the flip side, if the integrated education and the desired outcome of it is a career or employment that can sustain a man or woman in this nepotistic capitalist system, then we should do all we can to absorb what is offered, even if it is to cater to the demands of it. Hence, the rat-race.
But how have most White people "progressed" since MLK was assissinated? They seem to be complaining.


We seem to live in a system designed to screw most White people so what they call an educational system is designed to screw them. So wouldn't True Education mean out thinking the system? Double-entry accounting is 700 years old but you do not hear educators or economists saying it should be mandatory in high school.

What if MLK and Malcolm X had suggested that in the early 60s?

That is why I wrote this:

Trusting White people to tell us what "education" is makes about as much sense as trusting the Devil to tell you how to get to heaven. According to info on the Internet Jesse Jackson is worth Ten Million Dollars. But I don't hear him suggesting mandatory accounting either.

If education is based on attaining learned skills to advance in the job market of capitalism, then many have failed. Most recently with the outcry of the "99 percenters" who now feel the crunch similar to those that marched for fair wages and jobs in the 60s, are fighting against the same oligarchs that recognize if they educate and present jobs for everyone, their salaries and pay would decrease due to competition as well as fluctuating markets.
One thing I only learned on the Internet is that double-entry accounting is 700 years old. Invented in Italy. Most people in Europe could not read 700 years ago. How complicated can accounting really be?

Another curious thing is taht accounting was on of the first things that big businesses used computers for in the 50s and 60s. But very cheap computers are more powerful than those ancient and primitive machines. So why shouldn't computerized accounting be mandatory today?

It is not just getting the jobs, it is what is done with the money afterwards.

If it is 700 years old, how much has really changed in 99 years. LOL

Depreciation is mention on page 30 in this book but it is not untils 250 in a modern book I have. Knowledge is watered down to better serve the education business these days.

Terms to focus on here:

  1. Education
  2. Progress
  3. Real World
This is really funny, but it hits the nail on the head.

The Politics of Science Fiction
Fiction made reality more easily understood.
https://authorraychilensky.wordpress.com/2016/01/08/the-politics-of-science-fiction/

We have to deal with two realities, Physical Reality and Social Reality. But social reality means dealing with people that sometimes have different ideas about physical and social reality. "Herding Cats".

Climate Denial is a social reality. Whether or not the climate is actually changing because of the spread of technology started by White People is a physical reality problem. It is funny how we constantly hear that "mankind" is the cause rather than Euro-Americans.

The technology is inescapable however, so we must master it

To list the various categories that one can be "educated" in...

  • Math --- dozens of subcategories here
  • Physical Science --- dozens of subcategories here
  • Linguistics --- hundreds of subcategories here
  • History --- literal and fictional subcategories here
  • Economics --- dozens
I was just talking to a math teacher yesterday. I think part of the problem is that each teacher gets caught up in their own specialty and tries to affect the perspective of the student. That may be fine in college but not so good in grade school and high school. I confess that my own thinking was affected by starting to read science fiction in grade school. That altered my perspective on everything my teachers were saying from 5th grade on.

I can suggest two related science fiction stories that present ideas and information about all five subjects listed above:

1632 (Ring of Fire)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1632_series

1632 can be downloaded for free: http://www.baen.com/1632.html

1636: The Kremlin Games (The Ring of Fire)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1636:_The_Kremlin_Games

This is a strange time travel story where a West Virginia town of hillbilly coal miners is transported back in time to Germany in the year 1631. That was the middle of what Europeans call The Thirty Years War. The second book has one of the hillbillies going to Moscow and changing Russian history. Off hand this sounds rather silly but it is interesting in terms of the technological and cultural clashes. There is a Black doctor from Chicago and his daughter in the story. Modern White writers have to have diversity. LOL

Before I read this series I could not have told you if Galileo and Oliver Cromwell had lived at the same time. They did, Cromwell was in his 30s and Galileo in his 70s. The Thirty Years War was a big deal in European history though it is just another old war to us. Unless someone is really interested in European history the "education" on the subject won't make much impression. But this strange story shows how ideas from the future would change things like the economy of Russia. Standard education does not show how much things interrelate.

This also shows the influence of Aristotle on European intellectuals and serfdom and slavery in Russia.

This book has a Rah, Rah, America jingoist tone to it that turns some people off but I view it as part of the learning experience, in that it educates the reader about how some people actually think and how some readers might be influenced.
