Want to Hear A Good One?

This little gem was found on Wikipedia: “A madness of civilization: the American psychiatrist Samuel A. Cartwright identified what he called drapetomania, an ailment that caused slaves to be possessed by a desire for freedom and a want to escape.”

Sounds kind of similar to the “disease” psychiatrists ‘have identified’ as ADHD – the desire of children for freedom and want to escape a mind-numbing educational system.

Wow! I think most of my friends have drapetomania! I for one am desirous of ending the financial and cultural enslavement and working towards creating a new civilisation.

Sir Ken Robinson TED Speech

Ken gives a fabulous speech. You should listen just for what he has to say on ADHD! “If you are not prepared to be wrong you will never come up with anything original.” “We are educated out of creativity.” In the next 30 years, according to UNESCO, more people vworld wide will be graduating through education than since the beginning of history.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlg5l074PCI
