Learn What You Want To Learn

Learning that is a pleasure - discovering knowledge that you value.

Your whole life someone has told you what you need to know.

Some folks like this; All they have to do to get a pat on the head is follow where they are led.

If you have read this far, you are probably not someone seeking approval of authority.

Your independent mind keeps finding information you would like to pursue, but there is no structured study that suits you.

Let's assume you are moved by art, and want to choose a self-directed route to develop your talent.

History of sculpture may be accompanied by art creation and followed by the study of anatomy which leads to psychology, through architecture, and then to sculpting itself. You define your educational needs by your desire to answer questions. Follow answers with new questions on a now higher level.

Learning should be an enjoyable, all day, all life, self-directed endeavor.

A degree is a commodity purchased with your time and money for the purpose of self marketing.

You are more valuable than that. And you were smart enough to be born in a time where degrees are increasing in supply - hence losing value. What will matter in your future is integrity, adaptability, knowledge, and action.

There is today an ever increasing need for adaptable and creative doers. Society's survival now requires innovators to originate and develop ideas outside obsolete and decaying organizational structures.

In a world of increasingly temporal promises, small efficient groups now count on reputation to chose their affiliates. Small and nimble teams, we call them the Netcohort, of independent entrepreneurs are developing to fill the void being left by the first spasms of collapse from industrial age powers.

Those of you with independent minds were made for this world.

Explore knowledge you want to attain. Share with others that are thirsting for knowledge, desiring action, are filled with integrity, and will be able to adapt as the world changes.

Check out the courses at Bastiat Free University.

Register and monitor courses for free. Come and go as you wish.

Explore knowledge.

Decide for yourself how far to pursue any action.

Rediscover the pleasures of self-directed learning.

Consider:
The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view
of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.
Choose wisely...there are results.

Many problems in human experience are the result of
false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe. Selah
