Constructive Education – Part 2. What does it promotes?

In this post, I will continue to evolve the concept of “constructive education”. This subject is one of the most important aspect for creating a better future. As the Western society in the 21st century evolved attached to values of materialism, the need to own personal belongings for the sake of a self-image, became an inseparable aspect of young generations. It can be observed in the pursuit of self-fulfillment and the need for control based on ownership. This ownership mania can be reflected in the need to own fashion item, cars and properties. The claim of properties as our own is a false conceptional illusion, bringing only misery and separation.

If the purpose of humans is to promote peace and prosperity. It is important to remove those falls conceptional ideas from the mind of the young generation. The need and claim of proprietorship by the human race, is partly or in many cases wholly, the cause of all disturbance of peace on earth. Without any doubt, an individual should be able to identify a place as his home. But in any case, should not fine in pride or a reason to pursue the destruction for others.

We are all coming from nature and sharing earth. A livable earth is one of our basic requirements as any other living organism on this planet. Enough land and resources exist to maintain not only the human race. We have enough to maintain all its plans and animals as a whole. With the growing global awareness and the recent technological development, it is possible today to maintain a constructive ecological system. Such a system should benefit all the living on earth, without the need to corrupt the land and the nature.

Ignorant and so called civilized person are claiming proprietary right on the communal properties of nature, because they have detached themselves from the nature and its inhabitant. Praising values of materialism do not reflect in any manner riches of a person, just his detachment from where he came from.  It is impossible to find neither happiness nor peacefulness detached from our source, which is nature. The enrichment and comfort achieved in the price of the enslavement of the rest of the population, is a symptom of a general behavior. Which slowly but surely destroy the nature around us and diminish the number of species and animal on the planet.

We are all part of earth and its ecological system. Ignoring it will undoubtedly bring to the destruction of our civilization, our lands and our humanity. This fundamental idea must be in the roots of any educational system. As it affects the dreams, actions and decision making of our future generations.

Book Review – “Why Nations Fail” By Doran Acemoalu and James A. Robinson

My favorite Quotes from “Why Nations Fail”:

“Economic institutions shape economic incentives: the incentives to become educated, to save and invest, to innovate and adopt new technologies, and so on. It is the political process that determines what economic institutions people live under, and it is the political institutions that determine how this process works.”

“Politics is the process by which a society chooses the rules that will govern it.”
