‘Can You Name a Book? Any Book?’

We have the biggest and costliest public “education” system in world history–and what have we got to show for it?

  1. We have more knowledge available to us now than anytime in history, but people are not getting smarter. I think it’s because we are an entertainment oriented society. Before all the distractions we have today, but would read more because there was not much else to do.

    1. “[M]any shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4

      But it doesn’t appear to be knowledge that will do us any good.”

What a sad state of country to be in a place where books are economically affordable compared to other parts of the world and where one can have library resources and even free books to read for the low low cost of writing a review…I’m shaking my head.
