We do not need to change the education system

We should not change our education system; we have to make another one.
Our education system is a huge slave training for our selfish needs and purposes. We want them to replay our life, to feel that we will exist in our children when we are dead, they will continue our way, to feel that we are eternal, our self-esteem do not let us say “ok, maybe it is all wrong, this whole system of life, this way of thinking, maybe we can improve our life with a completely different approach, we do not have such a beautiful life here on earth, I do not know, maybe the technology is not the answer, maybe it is something else that we cannot even think of, maybe we have gone the wrong direction all this time". We insist in our way of life because we do not know any other. children are the only hope, they have not been influenced by our society as we have, they have less presumption than us, they can think with much more extend than us, their imaginary mind is much more powerful than us, imaginary for us, but it is the reality for them, we should not tell them they have a good imaginary mind we have to say your real world is much better than us, we should not kill every symptom that threats our stubborn minds, we should let it grow, we should make them our leaders, not to lead them to the dark that we are in it already.

  • Mar 14 2013: Afshin, do you think we need to change our religion system? What do you think of MALALA? I hope you understand the importance of educating women. Males=Females. I imagine you understand that important fact of life. Until the world acknowledged that FEMALES are EQUAL to MALES, humanity shall continue to suffer needlessly. Only truth works to bring about the healthy, happy lives that are possible. Let's change all systems to reflect the positive realities and possibilities of our species. We are all humans. We are all earthlings. Let's co-create a positive existence for ALL HUMAN BEINGS. Thanks.
