    [BONUS] Mass Formation

    Danny McCarthy and I discuss Mass Formation and Consequent Totalitarian Behavior in Homo Sapiens, with most of our conversation building around this quote: "Usually it is only about 30% [of a population that gets] grasped in a  mass phenomenon or hypnosis.  An additional 35-45% usually does not want  to raise a dissonant voice in the public space because they are scared  of the consequences.  So, usually about 70% who shut up – 30% because  they are convinced by the mainstream narrative and 40% because they  don’t dare to speak out.  And then there is an additional 20-25-30% who  does not go along with the narrative and says it in certain situations." - Dr. Mattias Desmet School Sucks Project · Mass ...

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does self-directed education look like?

Peter Gray - Self-Directed Education

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school. Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students, home-educating parents, and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization.
