    Our Education system

    For most of our lives, many of us spend our time listening to someone else feed us information. Then we are judged on how well we can regurgitate that information back to whomever offered it in the first place.

    Engage other to learn
    Learning must be engaging, if it’s not engaging learning will not take place

    Decision Making

    By honest I don’t mean that you only tell what’s true. But you make clear the entire situation. You make clear all the information that is required for somebody else who is intelligent to make up their mind.

    Let me have a dump on what it means to be a Human being

    Human beings never think for themselves, they find it too uncomfortable. For the most part, members of our species simply repeat what they are told, believe what they are told and become upset if they are exposed to any different view.

    Human beings

    The characteristic human trait is not awareness but conformity. Other animals fight for territory or food - but, uniquely in the animal kingdom, human beings fight for their ‘beliefs’...

    Being Human

    The reason is that our beliefs guide our behaviour, which has evolutionary importance among human beings. But at a time when our behaviour may well lead us to extinction, I see no reason to assume we have any awareness at all.

    We are conformists

    We are stubborn, self- destructive conformists. Any other view of our species is just delusional.

    Warning
    I'm going to have to self censor & curb posting - I'm starting to get on my soapbox & moving well off topic.

    Formal education is for the indoctrination of the young.

    It is to weed out non-conformists, award the obedient. Certified the mediocre to be good enough servants and managers of state affairs.

    Those weeded out will often not realise they've been had. Those selected will often deny they're mediocre. :cool:

    Roll the Dice

    if you're going to try, go all the
    way.
    otherwise, don't even start.

    if you're going to try, go all the
    way.
    this could mean losing girlfriends,
    wives, relatives, jobs and
    maybe your mind.

    go all the way.
    it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
    it could mean freezing on a
    park bench.
    it could mean jail,
    it could mean derision,
    mockery,
    isolation.
    isolation is the gift,
    all the others are a test of your
    endurance, of
    how much you really want to
    do it.
    and you'll do it
    despite rejection and the worst odds
    and it will be better than
    anything else
    you can imagine.

    if you're going to try,
    go all the way.
    there is no other feeling like
    that.
    you will be alone with the gods
    and the nights will flame with
    fire.

    do it, do it, do it.
    do it.

    all the way
    all the way.

    you will ride life straight to
    perfect laughter, its
    the only good fight
    there is.

    The most inner feeling thread of the soul ever on ASF.

    Treasure the absolute moment of your own thinking and love the fact that you are able.

    Sorry Skate have not been able to cover all your posts yet but love you.

    Skate... did you sell the farm and go short in October? Or is it the Yuletide spirit? Or maybe you met someone, like our friend Wayne. Either way, I'm happy for you! Some good content here.

    Hi @Gringotts Bank - thank you for your kind comment about the content - I know there is nothing new here for you but at least it maybe considered a pep talk to enthuse others.

    We have so many ASF members with a wealth of trading knowledge & life experiences - I was trying to encourage members to dump their wisdom in here.

    I just kept posting till I got the thread up & running.

    This thread will be short lived, nobody reads yesterdays news..

    Skate.

    Update - members with conviction

    I have the need to update the list of members who prosecute their case forcefully and with conviction - when these members post they are worthy to be listened to, they have a habit of dropping gems..

    include @sptrawler to the list.

    Skate.
