I'm really curious to see everyone's views on this. On one hand, learning all of the history, culture, world politics, economics, etc. is very important. I think they are subjects vital to everyone's education, but not every school has the budget to have all of these subjects on tap. On the other hand, why should there be people who aren't necessarily qualified to teach us things so important, and will their biases get in the way of the bigger message?

What is your opinion Hubski?


    We need a civic confirmation that treats democracy as its own ethical and even spiritual experience.

That's just creepy to me.
