Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Changing Mindset:

This is Part of the Ongoing Series 'Changing Mindset'

Several studies have shown the more educated a person is, the less likely this person is to have racist or anti-immigration beliefs. The more educated a person is, the more likely they are to travel to foreign countries and usually the more open-minded they are (sadly, highly educated couples have less children than average).

This is, IMHO, quite obviously because they have studied a variety of different things, speak more than one language (theres a long list of things, really) but more importantly, realize that they do not know everything and are willing to accept they are life-long learners. (this is obviously almost grossly oversimplifying things)

Obviously, someone not (at least subconciously) familiar with the concept of international trade and business as well as macroeconomics might be very afraid of losing their job to a foreigner because they fail to grasp that their short term loss might turn into a long term gain for all.

Or for a more current example, i do think that the usa would have had universal health care for quite a while now if the media had explained what socialism actually is.

For these and for a lot of other reasons we need more and better education and especially adult education.

once we collectively realise that our children are our future and education improves our childrens means to building a better future, we realise education will help us create a better world for all living creatures.

Education is so key. i think Howard zinns A Peoples History of The United States is a must read, especially for people who live here. The cirriculum taught in schools is subpar. What's the solution? If anyone was educated from a great book, please share. I would love to check it out

Just remember, having an educated populace does not mean they will stop doing stupid things. They just do em in really interesting ways.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
