We Need To Talk About “Education” – Deschooling Society

We Need To Talk About “Education” – Deschooling Society

“School is the advertising agency which makes you believe that you need the society as it is.”

Thus spake Ivan Illich. Austrian (we owe them so much) Philosopher, polymath, and author of the classic work Deschooling Society. A book that sits permanently by my bedside alongside Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged , The Complete Works of TS. Elliot and, The Count of Monte Cristo. But it is to Illich’s short but powerful gem that I turn to most out of the four.

When it comes to what we define as education I have …

Why We Should Oppose Mandatory Face mask Laws

Why We Should Oppose Mandatory Face mask Laws

 

 
As summer is coming up and the number of deaths from Coronavirus are going down, you would honestly think that it will be time to grasp that breath of fresh air whether it be out in the garden, out for a walk on the streets or even in the park with bigger woodlands if you’re lucky. Except, that may not be the case any longer if the pro-lockdown and Health & Safety zealots have anything to go by.

Three months ago, right at the time when …

The Case of The Nazi Pug : A Joke That’s No Laughing Matter

The Case of The Nazi Pug : A Joke That’s No Laughing Matter

March 2018 deserves to be recorded for posterity as a milestone. Or indeed a tombstone. A time When the Scottish Judiciary drove what may be the final nail into the coffin of freedom of speech and expression in this country.

It has been manifestly obvious to anyone that Police Scotland are a political animal and creature of the Scottish Notional Party. It would now also seem that the judiciary are firmly in their pocket.

At Airdrie Sheriff court after a trial lasting longer than Nurnberg, Markus Meechan …

General Election June 8th

General Election June 8th

The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has decided to disrupt our council election campaign by selfishly and inconsiderately calling a snap General Election. (Tsk!)

However, be that as it “May”, if life gives you lemons…squeeze them back in the ****s eyes is what I say.

Accordingly the leadership team will be doing our best to appoint a campaign manager and place some candidates in key positions in Scotland. Given our current financial situation we are looking at three, possibly four, candidates at the most but ideally I’d …

IndyRef2? Why I Cannot Vote Yes (again)

IndyRef2? Why I Cannot Vote Yes (again)

“..for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself. .”

 

So assert those who signed the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320. A document that alongside Magna Carta is said to have influenced the founding fathers of America and their constitution.
