Systems Awareness - Educated Insights

"'s difficult whenever you teach it's always complicated to know whether to tell the students some of the the things you really think...because they're young and you cannot take hope away from them. I have four grandchildren and I try to imagine [how] their world is going to be...I'm not overly optimistic, I mean I think the world we find ourselves at this particular moment not only in this country, but across the world, represents ideas and ideologies that are the exact opposite of what is needed. What is most needed is to understand the inter-relation and co-dependence of not only all peoples but of all things. Nitsche says "everyhting is entwined and enmeshed in a related.." no one no country no things can be be itself only by itself, but can be itself only through its relationship with others. And until we learn our co-dependence and our inter-relationship with other people,with other countries, with other races, with the natural world, we are on a path to destruction, and there is no getting away from that destruction other than the cultivation of those systems and structures that support that interdependence..." - Mark C.
