BFU - why create a new learning system?

The world is changing.

Huge bureaucratic nightmares are a leftover from the industrial age. Individuals are increasingly being empowered by technology. Informed solutions can now be made locally, not by distant central planers using "a one size fits all" approach.

Decisions in the Netocracy age will be made by those close to the situation, usually at a personal level. Large organizations will shrink, and possibly implode. This is not utopia, but it is a realistic appraisal of the probable direction of social interaction.

"Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation." - Bernard M. Baruch

A possibility is a network society composed of the Netcohort; everyone will make choices and alliances as it pleases them, as long as it causes no harm to other's rights to do the same. Fluid teams of knowledge workers will interact based on reputation, adaptability, and knowledge.

A degree looks fine on a resume, but if you manage your own business and life you need knowledge more than a diploma. Rediscover the pleasures of self directed learning. BFU offers an education that offers full flexibility of personal choice.

This is a Renaissance approach that integrates diverse knowledge and action, instead of forcing learning into separate subject boxes. Public education forces everyone into a specialization. Your rarity as a generalist will have great value, and being a generalist is much more fun.

At Bastiat Free University you determine which courses you take.
