Muck-a-Moonis

All the trouble in the world, and no shortage of Moses's wanting to lead us out of said trouble.

Richard Mitchell described the goal of a true education, the ability to choose the better from the worse. Seems simple enough, but that choosing can only happen in a mind, a mind quietly asking and answering in turn. Mitchell wrote about "moments" of education, looking-up-from-the-page-and-wondering moments.

The ills of this world will not be solved loudly, e.g., wars, talk-radio, speeches from "leaders". You and I will quietly settle this and let the world continue its shouting match.
