    Something that should have been standard 50 years ago has now happened.

    So what?

    And yes, the political masters never wanted the university to have a program far less a network for learning and communication.

    But it will still deal with issues whose days are done!

    An arrested development leaving a wide gap between the real issues with import for the future and perceived reality.

    We are saying that a quantum leap is now necessary

    And that what is presented tries to fulfill the requirements of a bygone age.

    Notwithstanding the need to make a quantum leap as you say how does it replace the24/7 need to record oral history?

    That’s one of our sub-points.

    The people who are likely to be called to ‘record oral histories’ sic will hardly be able to transcend their own epoch.

    Indeed a ‘quantum leap’ could be associated with a ‘clean break’

    And you define clean break as what?

    David:

    We see the dysfunction in all the systems. We talk about them all the time.

    There comes in time in the affairs of men/women when children must disobey their parents.

    A clean break must mean creating a new view of ourselves and therefore consigning current thinking/systems to the dustbin of history.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    What an Impressive line of thinking…..
    unfortunately, it is too little …and MUCH too late.

    Children are creatures of their parents.
    Anytime that children are forced to disobey parents…. as an act of common sense….
    you MUST know that the end is here.

    The natural order of things is for parents to pass on their best traits to children, who then build on the foundations provided. When parents are such brass bowls that THEIR OWN CHILDREN can smell the urine that they relish … there can be NO HOPE for the children….

    To what will they revert…?
    From whence will they find strength…?

    Ours is the archetypical death cycle being played out…
    Only matters that transcend death can be of any logical import at this stage…..

    Like an old, ill, grandparent, on death’s bed …. Mother Earth can only look to a spiritual future… the material future is clearly at an end… entropy has triumphed

    …but you dismiss any such spiritual reality out of hand….. don’t you…?

    Of course, in these matters your vision is superior.

    Bushie, we now know with certainty that little the university is doing would be of any value in 30 years. We seeing it already.

    The interview itself was quite informative. It should have been done by a Dennis Johnson or Carol Roberts.
