NON-ELECTED WEALTH-DRIVEN FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS OWN OUR GOVERNMENT

Hey, I’m blogging again. My last blog was in June. I am completing research and writing a new book exploring the challenges presented by AI and machine intelligence and the evolution of our education system so that we prepare humans to use and control artificial intelligence. Since 2016, Dan Kenley and I have recorded over thirty hours of podcast interviews on our Insights Into Education…

WHAT MUST HAPPEN

Sessions must be removed as Attorney General of the United States.  He openly lied to Congress many times at his confirmation hearing. These lies were televised and obvious to the American people.  He is responsible for acts and statements of racial bias, not limited to his investment in privatizing prisons and incarcerating persons of color.  He often acts against the majority will of the American…

Here we are again. The murders caused by the NRA-GOP-Gun manufacturers corruption have terrorized America for over a generation. Young people do not see adults working effectively to stop these crimes against humanity. In reality, those working to change our society, starting with the Columbine generation, have learned that they have no power, and in fact, that the forces of this evil have blocked their…

REMEMBERING GEORGE AND SUE KELLY

Mar 5th, 2018 Uncategorized EdwardBerger 2 min read

George was a powerhouse who worked dawn-to-dusk.  In 1968 he was in his seventies but seemed a young fifty. Everywhere he went, his worn shovel was in his hand. When he wasn’t setting a fruit tree of jabbing at a noxious weed he was following a wall and unearthing an ancient room. At night, sitting within the cool, thick walls of their beautiful home, we…

AS AN EDUCATOR I’VE HELD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT

Let’s start with a no-brainer:  No Education Without Immediate And Practical Application. That sums up all that I know about learning, teaching, and education. All that I have observed and found true since I began teaching in 1961. It is the key to understanding why the education systems have been failing our children.  It is the key to understanding why educators who have attempted to…

THEY HAVE EARS BUT REFUSE TO HEAR

Hey irate fellow citizens. Have you listened to the majority of those who voted for Trump? Not the crazies or the religious fanatics, but the great majority of Trump voters. They are not evil, immoral, ignorant people. They did not vote for Trump because he abuses women, is a business failure, is a hate-filled creep and a narcissistic animal.  No, the majority do not like…

WHAT HAS BEEN ALLOWED IS THE INCURSION OF AN OLIGARCHY

In my last blog written in July 2017, I opened with the following observation: Within the core of our freedoms, lie the avenues powerful individuals use to take away the rights of citizens and the controls of government designed and evolved to serve all.  Americans are now aware of the reality that subversive forces have made excessive headway in destroying our rights. What has been…

THE COUP TO DESTROY THE AMERICAN DREAM

Within the core of our freedoms, lie the avenues powerful individuals use to take away the rights of citizens and the controls of government designed and evolved to serve all. Americans are now aware of the reality that subversive forces have made excessive headway in destroying our rights. What has been allowed is the incursion of an Oligarchy: The few exploiting the many.  We are…

ENDING THE FUTILITY CAUSED BY INACTION BLOG PART III

It is true that humanity is nearing a point where we have poisoned our planet. We have expanded until we are in danger of exhausting our options and now hope science can enhance the chances of our survival. We continue to increase the number of people that need food, clothing, shelter, medical care, meaningful employment and security based upon the rule of law. We Earthlings…
