MMM-challenge

Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “L”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “M” – I’m sure you’ll also find a a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “M”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “M”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the subject “Malala’s Speech”:

MALALA

Malala‘s speech: “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first.”

comment by Nia, Turkey:
“Malala’s speech is great and so true too but then I should ask these points, (because of the experience right now in my own country and makes me worry about the future)
1) who is the teacher? or Who will be the teacher? or Is the teacher right person?
2) which book… ?
3) what kind of education?
4) what is education? according to who… or another question or point education is for all human… ?”

FRIZZ reply:
dear Nia,
instead of the Koran I would offer to read my article about KANT: flickrcomments: immanuel kant – 1724 – 1804 especially the quote: “A religion, which makes humans dark, is wrong…” – that is a sentence good to consider for every nation, every religion, every female or male person – and not an indoctrination by one specific nation, religion, male power clique etc.

  1. And the article on Kant was excellent. As for my own education, which was secular, my teachers, especially early on, were none too wonderful. And I think I learned little in school. The schools my own children went to, again secular, public schools, were far far inferior to the ones I remember. So let us not bank too much on the educational systems of our societies. A man must learn to think, to consider evidence, to try to understand things. Kant was correct.

  6. M! I’m a fan of Malala. I don’t think money is evil. It’s inanimate. It’s paper and coins. The worship of money is evil. But we’re jumping to W now, are we not?

  7. is it the “religion” or the way some people teach the religion to keep power, that make the humans dark?
    Of course, we can think about the purpose of religions and how they evolved with times….
    For some people, the new religion is “Weapons” : See my post of 10AM today 😉

    Education comes from many sources–school was not always the best, but I’m grateful nonetheless, as it taught me where else to look and learn. Hello Frizz–I’m terribly behind with your alphabet challenge, but determined to “steady on” and catch up! God bless you today–Caddo

  14. I have to be in agreement with Bumba and those like him that believe education in and of itself is not the frame work of the character of a human being. It is learning to think rather than to conform to the one thing taught and study (not just reading popular rhetoric).
    “A religion, which makes humans dark, is wrong…” Excellent

    Frizz, do you remember the very old song, Mockingbird Song? I think Rosemary Clooney sang it. Anyway, here is the Mockingbird.

    • thank you for the reminder to one of my favorite songs when I was a teenager taking my first dancing lessons! I saved it from the vinyl to my Grundig tape recorder, then to MD’s and musicassetts then converted that to digital for use on CD-roms – and now found some versions on youtube:

        Love this and both James TAyler and Carly Simon but it wasn’t the one I was thinking of. The one I had going through my head had the lyric “Tweedly dum dum Iit gives me a thrill to wake up in the morning to the Mocking Bird song. It is way before our time.
