If raising children is one of the most important things we do in society, shouldn't the subject be directly taught in schools?
Hey Mick, I think you do have a good idea here, but i think you're missing a key point. The fact of the matter is that most of the people in our society who responsibly have children already know how to take care of their own and raise them in a fairly responsible way. The real problem, unfortunately, are low income families, who will literally have children to attain extra money through federal programs such as welfare. I currently work at an elementary school which has a rather high level of low income children coming from families just like what i described above. These are the children that need to be taught, but unfortunately by the time most of these kids get into school they are already horribly maladjusted by their general home life. I would have to say that I don't think its the responsibility of the school to try and teach parenting to children, rather, we should try and change something in the system so that the parents teach their kids this.

Why dont we enjoy the movie as much as the book ?
I'd say it has to do with the fact that with a book, you get every single fact thats important to the story. with a movie, a lot is left out. If you read the book before you saw the movie, chances are you'll like the book better, simply because it will seem like the book did a better job explaining the important facts in better detail.

Thoughts on a global government.
In a world where nationalism is so prevalent, i simply cant see a world in which a one world government could work. Everyone simply hates each other too much. sad but true.. for every rational person in the world there are 10 who arent. Money, in itself, based on the monetary economics system, is more or less oppression in paper form. If you disagree with me then perhaps you need to spend more time looking into capitalism and what its done for the world. or maybe just what its done for the US. go AIG. If we in our lifetimes actually see any semblance of one world government it will most likely be in the form of a centralized world bank.

Harvey Fineberg: Are we ready for neo-evolution?
Mm. I like my way better. and no, I'm not saying his whole talk is speculation, but to a point it is. Despite his discussion having a lot of solid evidence, he's still talking about the future of evolution, and unfortunately i think that trying to predict our evolution is speculative. color me crazy

Harvey Fineberg: Are we ready for neo-evolution?
All of this is nothing more than speculation. To say that something will happen one way or another is foolish considering that nothing has happened yet. That's my biggest problem with discussions like this. In the end, we have two conflicting views; there's a handful of people on one side, and a handful on the other. We aren't going to know until we try. You want to say that things will be heavily polarized and that things like this will destroy our culture? My argument would be: how could it be any worse than the way things are at this very moment?
