Over centuries we have become so used to categorising everything in order to make sense of it all that we suppressed any expression of being multifaceted. We then began to realise that an individual can possess many identities at different levels of expression that can change over time.

I don’t agree with staring at a screen all day but I think what this short doc is trying to say is that we need to start teaching the next generation useful information that will be relevant to their future.

Not everyone learns the same way and there are options other than university. But that’s just me digressing again.
This doc has some critical and optimistic speakers. I solute them.
