Changing is Hard Stuff

RSA Animate - Changing Education Paradigms - YouTube

We need to stop education of the Group and start education of the Person. I know that my whole agenda rest on the concept that Society is an interdependent functioning group that depend on each other. I stress that the individual is not self sufficient but must depend upon the cooperative work of the whole group.

But the primary value of the group is to enhance and preserve the intrinsic value of the individual lives. All to often Society has promoted the Value of the group. The benefits of that emphasis is to reward a few at the cost of the many. All to often the lives of the individuals at the bottom of the power and economic spectrum are consider to be expendable. 

My philosophy is that every life has an intrinsic value that should be the first priority of the Group. Extraordinary performance and achievement should be rewarded with extraordinary reward, but not at the expense of the intrinsic value of each and every life .

I recommend this :
