A friend asked me to donate money to a project that builds schools for children in an economically depressed country.
I thought for a while and asked: "Will those schools show our children the beauty of cooperation and the dangers of unconscionable competition? Compassion instead of reckless consumption"? Will they teach our children how killing is not just a matter of taking a life but also of stealing an opportunity to live with dignity? Will they live conscious that each human being ultimately impacts everyone and everything else?
Our world is the way it is now largely because of what and how we've been taught.
