    “Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is

    something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predece". What are your thoughts on this?

    No. Same old message of Love. There are those who have been teaching their children hate for many years! The children teach their children, and the cycle continues.

    I am proud of the black man in the sense that 20 million of them died across the Middle Passage during slavery, but they do not go on about this. If we keep trying to address wrongs there will be so many people with legitimate claims! Besides, it is much harder to evolve with inner pain.

    They should know that education is necessary to get by in this world; to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's. To practice Love, being aware that wisdom is a higher education and the fruit of inner experience is Peace.

    I would teach them of an inner wonderful and loving God and not a frightening one; of actions and consequences and of the immortality of the Soul. I would teach them that we are on a journey to Light; that Life is a necessary Sojourn and that they should learn to walk the path well but without hatred in their Hearts.

    America is full of motivators, life-coaches, preachers, inspirers. Some are awesome and others need to be shunned. I will teach children to use their instincts, feelings, be prudent ...rely on Something Higher...that sweet voice within the Heart. Above all, I would encourage daily communion with their Souls.

    I would encourage schooling, college, university, bearing in mind these values and all other things such as to prepare the child for this Field of Struggle here on Earth. I would do this lovingly and inspire hope.

      Coming to the present and the next 4-10 years when primary aged children are learning about further detachment and control of others via learning how to code and program for the oncoming job wave of robotics. Will instinct and soul communion be?

      You're not usually so complex? (smile) Frankly, children learn from birth, or perhaps even in the Mother's womb, if we teach them. Simplicity is the key. Some freedom is essential!

      I definetely believe the foetus is "learning" about its world through itself and its mother's feelings and beliefs during pregnancy.
