DeCentralize / Deschool /
just a note, sore thumb, will develop:
Brazil spent god knows how much on its soccer stadium: lots of excitement, lots of media/web coverage, neat, how exciting.
But: I’m a disciple of Ivan Illich. Ivan Illich is the deschooler: no compulsory rituals! no compulsory attendance at rituals. Let people chose this church, that school, if they want to; but don’t shove them.
I’m the other deschooler: I’m the guy who offered to develop cybernetic data bases for the public: don’t pay taxes, give me the money: just a bit of the money: I’ll do more for less. Politically free, free from manipulated markets: an ideal, but also our practical best chance: Christian anarchism.
Before developing deschooling, illich preached developed nations leaving undeveloped nations alone to solve their own problems: the US will have problems enough with roads, trucks, 2-car families: there’s no need to foist our future problems onto South America’s present.
I heard complaints about the soccer stadium from those saying Brazil needed the money spent on roads, schools … No. Get rid of kleptocracy. Maybe get rid of money too: certainly get rid of tax money. If people truly had true representatives it might be different, but with GM and Dupont behind the thrones it’s all a giant step toward destruction.
Actually, I fear it’s been a bunch of giant steps beyond destruction for some time now. Dead men walking. Wealth won, same as Death. Freedom never had a chance.
