"Behind it all lurks the overweening bureaucracy. Overpaid, overperked and underworked, insidious and international, they build their empires and extend their tentacles of control into the very heart of the lives of ordinary people. Research and educational policies are decided by people who think mathematics means arithmetic and have no conception of physics at all. Real research has all but come to an end, being largely replaced by populist surveys designed to catch the eye of the popular media. Mickey Mouse universities offer frivolous courses, while school children are subjected to a treadmill of continual testing between bouts of propaganda. In short, people are being deprived of the mental equipment to make a judgement of their own on any matter of importance. So Orwellian!" - John Brignellhttp://www.numberwatch.co.uk/zealots.htm

A Merry Christmas to all people of goodwill everywhere, especially those special few who drop in here!
My apologies again for the light blogging. My ambition for 2011 is to help find and promote antidotes for the poisonous alarm, and negative, destructive thinking deliberately injected into schools all over the world under the guise of 'environmentalism' by those using 'climate change' as the terror of choice to win attention and compliance from the young.
And, when it comes, a Happy New Year to one and all!
