Ken Robinson: How schools kill creativity
I completely agree with this! Sir Ken Robinson got it right! Schools encourage us to be "realistic" and "practical," but that only leads to a loss of creativity and courage! Check out this article that i wrote about the same topic: http://buchis-book.blogspot.com/2012/06/realistic-road-to-mediocrity.html

Racism is "irrational," but it still exists! i'm confused... will the world ever be able to rid itself from the scourge of racism?
I think that the roots of racism lie within the human psyche itself. Think about it...even if you get rid of racism between black and white people, then there is still racism between American-born blacks and African-born blacks. If we get rid of that then there is racism between light colored blacks and dark-colored blacks. If we get rid of that then there is racism depending on what country in Africa you are from. And even if we get rid of that, then there is racism between what tribe you are from in that country. However, I think that the key to defeating racism also lies within the human psyche. We have to recognize it and then CHOOSE to act differently. To better understand what I mean, check out this article that I wrote: http://buchis-book.blogspot.com/2012/05/i-am-not-naive-individual-glorifying.html
