• More Than Just Words

    For evil to triumph, it only needs that the good do nothing.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.

(Three articles concerning education ‘reforms’. Written from an American perspective, they apply to measures being implemented in education systems around the world, which goes to demonstrate that these moves are part of an orchestrated global strategy and the need for those resisting them to join with their international compatriots.)
