    First The Birmingham School District refused to afford Black students an equal education now they want to secede from the collective. So which song is being sung this go round? Dark clouds a coming from racial disparity or are the lights dimming from loss of historical voting power?

    Since I do not see what is so great about Whites educating Whites Why don't we create a reading list for Black kids? Not just Black History either.

    It is curious that accounting is not mandatory for White kids even though double-entry accounting was invented in Italy 700 years ago. The schools are designed to produce brainwashed workers even if they are White.

    Get outside of the box:

    Stuart Chase seems to have a problem calling forward from his brain -- WORDS.

    When he has a vacuous moment, a loss of words, he substitutes the word he falls back on frequently, F**k.

    I tend to think he is speaking according to what he supposes his listeners can relate to. I am glad though he has discovered books.

    The jerk that made the video is not Stuart Chase.

    The jerk just does a silly job of introducing the book and talking about Alfred Korzybski. I stumbled and forced my way through Science and Sanity in my twenties. I never heard of Tyranny of Words until 10 years ago. But it is so curious that such a book is not widely known. Ignore the BS the jerk has to say except what is applicable to the book.

    Your are correct. The two sentences he did read from that book were quite interesting and even beautiful. Do you write since you have an interest in that book?

    Curious to see more replies.
    I've seen so many post against integration and claim a need for segregation. A problem the millennials, cluelessly, have with the CRM.
