Time, Thunberg & Codswallop

So I went through my mail today and there was Time magazine {need to track what the other side is up to!} and wonders never cease: their Person of the Year, Nordic teen Greta Thunberg, stared up to the heavens with waves crashing round, symbolizing environmental activism and hope for the future. I’m thinking, shouldn’t she be in home-ec or doing her algebra homework? {Sorry, that first one should be FACS for family and...

Misguided Defectors/Fanatics?

If you’re like me you hold your values tight believing they’re right and just. The world would be a better place if everyone was on a similar path. For me, the values are conservative.

Its also due to growing secularization, single-moms, fatherless homes, rising prevalence of...

Cleaning House 3

In CH2 we talked about the erosion of American values among young adults under 30 and how education at primary, secondary & college is not what it used to be. In fact, its nothing like it used to be, focused more on societal mores, standards & political ideology and less on historical/contemporary reality, meaning real world facts and truths concerning our existence.   I believe this is happening because the...
