The education issue

From social symptom to root causes came about as a bi-product of ZDAY 2013 in London, in which all but the introductory talk featured exterior organisations and speakers. Each of whom seek to address a particular social or environmental issue closely aligned with the movement’s materials.

How to Spot BS and Never Feel Insulted Again: A Brief Introduction to General Semantics and Non-Violent Communication

How to Spot BS and Never Feel Insulted Again: A Brief Introduction to General Semantics and Non-Violent Communication

There are few things quite so mis-understood by humans as their own psyche and behaviours. A few examples of our distortions from reality include concepts such as the existence of 'good and evil' people, or of a human having a distinctly separate 'mind and body' and hence having separate 'mental' and 'physical' health. Such old superstitions are still passed around human cultures today, even decades after evidence that shows them to be irrelevant has passed from the cutting edge of science.

Self appointed guardians in the spotlight

Self appointed guardians in the spotlight

We are familiar with Peter Joseph’s references to the self-appointed guardians of the status quo – those all-too-abundant, willfully ignorant members of society who seem to regard any criticism of the current system as an attack on their own dignity, self-esteem and social status, and who are all too ready with their belittling strawman attacks as soon as the RBE concept is introduced. We have all spent time sharing online resources helping to arm ourselves with various tips on how to cut through their logical fallacies and maintain a strong, credible position in any debate.

My Proposal for an RBE Game

My Proposal for an RBE Game

I've been working for a while on this concept in my head.

After searching for other such proposals on the web for me to join in and share ideas, and being disappointed by what I found, I decided to start working on my own proposal from scratch.

When we look at the concept of education through the lens of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems, we immediately notice that the word “education” itself generally refers to formal processes and institutions that deliver teacher-driven content from preschool through higher education.

In Otherwise Grim State, Zday 2012 Provides Optimism

It is not hard to understand why some people take solace in blissful ignorance. The amount of accessible doom-ridden information on oppressed human rights and freedoms throughout history is disheartening, to say the least. Mind you, any truth seeker has surely come to realize that going back to a sheltered, dependent state of mind is futile once a certain threshold of consciousness is transcended.

Response to The KONY 2012 Phenomenon | TZMUK

Recently, a viral phenomenon flared up as a result of a video campaign entitled ‘Kony 2012′, which encourages the viewer to become passionate about chasing down a man named Joseph Kony, who is apparently involved in gang warfare, rape, severe child abuse, slavery, murder and the like in Uganda and it’s neighboring countries. This is obviously extremely inhumane and abhorrent behavior to say the least.

PJ's radio show Q & A breakdown

PJ's radio show Q & A breakdown

I have broken down one of PJ's old radio shows into individual mp3s. It took me a long time to break down one episode but I plan on doing more. I have edited some of the questions so that they are more searchable for keywords. Also I have included the text files of the questions, the time stamps and the original full radio show on the upload page. I'll list the questions here as well. If anyone else is working on a searchable database of questions or knows if these shows have been dissected like this already I would be grateful to know. Thanks, hope you enjoy.
