Great conversation starter, 💾 Aivaras!

I definitely share your frustrations with curricula and teaching methods that promote memorization in lieu of critical inquisition.

And I agree — without assurance of basic needs, humanistic interests necessarily yield to desperate individualism.

Kinda hard to make good decisions when you’re hungry. Kinda hard to think critically about spoon-fed facts when you’re wondering if you’ll have a safe place to sleep. Kinda hard to care about others when you’re preoccupied with your own day-to-day survival.

Should government provide for the basic needs for all so all can think and behave pursuant to greater good of all?

Or should a few individuals pursue Maslow’s idea of self-actualization while everyone else clamors for basic goods and services at the bottom of the pyramid?

Can a poorly educated public even ask — or dare I say, demand?
