Message from Virtue in Safe Space 3 #lobby-unvetted
What if an elite, for example, wanted to question the existence of god? Or wanted to promote degeneracy?
consider our own democratic system
which is so obsesses with asking normal people what they think
to get their votes
that that the entire system is drowning in nonsensical opinions
and every fucking idiot is encouraged to believe
they just as insighfull as some professor.
in the Chinese beurocracy there where no theological restrictions.
But ensuring everyone has the same ideology can lead to a bit of insular thinking
The chinese beuroctats questioned and debated openly
every aspect of religion and tradition.
the one shared ideology is just a front for the political system..
in our current political system nothing less than a fanatical ideology
can push through the simplest reform..
Agreed. Lowest common denominator is what can get consensus. Or outright war.
More specific. The shared ideology is the education system
people will not submit to authoritive teacher-student relationships
in a democracy.
Is authoritative the proper method?
like anti-student democracy.
I haven't read this book in a while, but it moved me at the time. http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/
The concept of the authoritarian follower was terrifying.
I read about teaching methods and the history of changes in teachers methods
and think the old disciplin oriented education sytem was the correct
one and this education we have now is based
on free upbringing and having discussions with children
to get them to understand things..
...sight I meant authoritarian as authoritian
not the political system..
Human beings have and need authority figures..
Yes, but questioning authority is very useful.
I am not saying that we should brainwash children or make everyone
That is a bit of modern propaganda you have been feed.
They did question authority
The individual should.
students and other teachers did question teatchers
in the entire victorian era.
But they did so within their system.
they still had authority figures..
Questioning authority isn't mutually exclusive with having authority.
the current school system has abolish the authorative figure
I haven't been in school for quite a while.
I remember seeing peers spanked bare bottom in front of the whole class.
Teacher would keep a paddle on the wall near the door.
oh the old days..
are you that old?
From a rural town. So they probably were a bit resistant to change.
we need some of that BACK
And yeah, I'm probably much older than most of the people who use discord.
The physical punnishment is wrong.
But you dont actually need to get rid of the authority figure
It helped form my anti-authoritarian beliefs.
